About

Hey, I am Seb 🤙🏻, an entrepreneurial guy who is passionate about building digital products and businesses that deliver great customer experiences.

I combine technical skills with an entrepreneurial mindset and an eye for design

During the day, I lead the omnichannel messaging experience with a focus on growth and long-term retention at DAZN as a Senior Product Manager, making sure that we deliver our members great experiences across the globe.

At night, I am passionately building digital products. ==My latest project is Memoly, an app that lets you manage all your contracts and subscriptions. I built it without a single line of code and just launched on the app stores for iOS & Android.

Most recently, I published a course== on Udemy enabling anyone to prototype quickly and build an MVP without code.

I graduated 🎓 with a Master's degree in Information Science from the University of Amsterdam. During my studies, I tried to gain as many technical skills as possible. I interned as a software developer at companies like IBM, Porsche, and Capgemini. I got the chance to work on many different client projects and develop impactful features, e.g., for the global ordering system of Mercedes-Benz and BMW. I also had the opportunity to spend some time in China, doing a Big Data research project and learning Mandarin 🇨🇳.

After graduation, I wanted a steep learning curve so I started out as a management consultant at PwC. I transformed global organizations with thousands of people to enable innovation and new revenue sources.

I learned a lot about solving hard problems independently, delivering high-quality work, researching, analyzing data and stakeholder management. However, after a few years, my learning curve flattened out and I wanted to work more hands-on.

I decided to do two things:

1️⃣ I became a freelancer and got the chance to work on some exciting projects. For instance, I did UX research and developed a new business model for a brand new insurance service platform. I have also conceptualized a mobile app with a chatbot for an international hotel chain or validated the product-market fit for an early-stage startup.

2️⃣ My team at CoinMirror and I launched a cutting-edge Blockchain-based product from scratch. We have been passionate about the idea of democratizing access to investment opportunities. Bootstrapping and getting traction has been though, I had to get creative and find ways to acquire users without a budget. We did a lot of experiments and tests and eventually got featured by ProductHunt and major media outlets on our launch.

Based on my various experiences in different disciplines, I found Product Management to be the perfect fit for me because I can combine all those different skills

I enjoy strategizing, getting creative, testing ideas, solving problems, focussing on user value, digging into data, influencing design and collaborating with different teams.

In my spare time, I enjoy learning new skills and languages (most recently 🇳🇱), working on cool stuff that I am passionate about, music (beat production 🎧 and I just got an electric guitar  🎸) and also sports 🎾 ⚽️ 🤿 and 🏌️.
