Who are you?

Hi! My name is Chanila Jonker, I live with my friend in IJmuiden, just 20 minutes by bike from the Techspire Office. I love to be outside and go out to festivals with friends, also my family is really important for me.

What would you like people to know about you?

Every year I love to go to the campsite with my friend with our Tent. I really love music, al types, from the Dutch songs, to Rock.

Do you have a life motto? what is it?

Live life to the max, everyday can be the last one.

What is the most "nerdy thing" about you?

I love Jigsaw puzzles.

Do you have interesting hobbies?

It is not really interesting, but I love to play boardgames. (Ticket to Ride, Kolonisten van Catan, Andor) and I do like to go out fishing

Any bloopers in the past you would like to share?

In 2021 we had a lot of snow in February and my friend and me were sliding in the snow from a small mountain. We crossed the same tree for more then 10 times, but the last time we were going down (imagine 2 adult people on a sled) I thought we will crash against the tree so I wanted to stop the sled with my feet. Of course that won’t work the tree is stronger, so on that moment it cracked and it was broken on 3 places and for 1 year I had a small Ikea in my ankle but now they took everything out and it is going better every week.

With what it problem should the person who read this, contact you immediately, as you cannot wait to solve it?

I don’t think, anyone should contact me for IT problems, I know how my computer works and that is it.

Tell us any (weird) fun fact about you?

My first job was at the fair (kermis), I did this for more than 4 years.

Why do you (want to) work for Techspire?

It is a really nice inspiring business, I love to see how the future will be. A company that is growing and being a part of this is something I am really looking forward to.
