Daan | 15 januari 2024 - 3 min leestijd - Ndus3

Hey there, I’m Kacper, a 26-year-old originally from Poland, now living in Son en Breugel, deeply passionate about engineering and technology. Graduating from the University of Science and Technology in Wrocław with a degree in computer science was a fundamental step that propelled me into the world of embedded software development.

During my university years, I joined Nokia as an embedded C/C++ developer, diving into various aspects of the role, including working on device drivers and contributing to the creation of the uboot bootloader. Transitioning to Kongsberg Maritime after graduation, I specialised in embedded C++ and dedicated my expertise to crafting maritime bridge software, controlling propellers, and thrusters.

Outside of work, I enjoy the peaceful life in Son en Breugel, a small city near Eindhoven, since my girlfriend and I made the decision to move to the Netherlands. We appreciate the quiet charm and simplicity here, taking leisurely strolls and discovering the hidden gems of this place. While our home isn’t graced by any pets yet, we often imagine the joy a furry companion would bring. Driven by my passion for technology and a constant desire for innovation, I’m committed to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the digital realm.

What do you do in your free time?

In my free time, I’m quite an enthusiast for exploration. I’ve had the chance to travel through Europe, North America, and Asia—each destination brings its own unique charm and experiences. When the snow calls, you’ll find me snowboarding down the slopes or gliding gracefully on ice skates. Sports-wise, football and volleyball are where I find my competitive edge and enjoyment. As for leisurely activities, I’m a fan of video games—basically any genre, although I tend to steer clear of mobile ones.

What is your best quality?

My best quality lies in my profound passion for software and technology, coupled with an open mind when engaging in discussions about problems. This combination fuels my enthusiasm for continuous learning and innovation, enhancing my collaborative and problem-solving abilities.

What is your biggest study or work life blunder/failure?

One significant blunder in my academic journey was not fully committing to learning the German language during both primary and secondary school. Although I did take lessons, I didn’t focus as much on them as I now recognize I should have. Looking back, I realise the missed opportunity and the importance of linguistic skills, not just for personal enrichment but also for broader career opportunities

What is your favourite tv-series or game?

My favourite game is Red Dead Redemption 2 because of its meticulous attention to detail, the immersive reality of its open world, and the captivating characters and story, and of course wild west!

Why did you choose this job at Ndus3?

I chose to work at Ndus3 because this company, unlike any other, prioritises and supports self-development and growth. It genuinely seeks to help you become the engineer you aspire to be.

What do you want to achieve in your work in the coming year?

In the coming year, I aim to expand my knowledge of C++, focusing on the latest 20 and 23 standards. Additionally, I aspire to familiarise myself with the Qt framework, further enhancing my skill set in software development.

What working-field would you like to explore or even end-up in?

I find computer vision particularly intriguing, and it seems like a field that will become increasingly important in the future. Exploring and potentially ending up in the realm of computer vision excites me due to its potential impact and the challenges it presents.

For what can we wake you up in the middle of the night?

Feel free to wake me up in the middle of the night if you’ve got plans for a spontaneous mountain trip to hit the slopes and do some snowboarding!

What are your guilty pleasures?

My guilty pleasures undoubtedly involve indulging in watching movies and TV series. I also have a fondness for singing out loud, even though I must admit, I’m a pretty terrible singer.
