Meet The Team

Cor, Co-founder

Cor is one of the founders of FireServiceRota in 2006. His journey started working side-by-side with a local Station Manager to help firefighters be available when needed, and free when possible.

Our purpose hasn't changed, but Cor's role has. Since 2006, Cor's responsibilities have evolved from being a software developer to become the team leader he is today. Together with Ruben, he grew the team with highly dedicated and motivated team members. Fully committed to help save lives by alerting and planning firefighters flexibly and reliably.

As Chief Technology Officer, he works closely with FireServiceRota's fantastic Customer Success and Development teams to first deeply understand the problem our users are facing, before coming up with practical and simple (technical) solutions.
