❇️ "I learned a lot from you and you set up the standard for how to write better code"
❇️ "Yours was one of the few 1:1 syncs where I always found we ran out of time and had more to talk about, outside of just pure engineering. Thanks for your mentorship and leadership"
❇️ "Your mentorship and guidance have been invaluable to me, and I have learned so much from you as a senior engineer and team member."
Over my years at Meta and Plaid, I realised that every time I changed teams, people's goodbye notes would highlight two things:
👥 Mentoring 👥
🌟 Quality 🌟
Quality in terms of code, products, system design and organisational structures. I mentored a wide range of engineers (from new-grad / junior to senior / staff) as well as engineers who recently moved into the management track and need help adjusting.
You can expect, depending on your personal learnings style:
➡️ Advice rooted in experience
➡️ Recommended reading material
➡️ Exercises that I found useful myself.
Most recently I was the Area Tech Lead at Plaid, providing technical leadership to four teams across three locations around Open Banking-based Payments and Data Connectivity.
At Meta, I worked at the HQ in Menlo Park on different teams and tools, ranging from internal code analysers to the Developer Platform, and from the internal knowledge base to advertising-facing software.
My mentoring approach is to have you, the mentee, take charge on the topics that you want to work on. As we start with those, we often naturally move to other areas of growth and topics to explore.
Note: I'm typically based in The Netherlands 🇳🇱 and my timezone 🕐 is GMT+1.

Comparing where I was the day I reached out to Roemer for mentorship to where I am today, feels surreal. When I reached out to him I was in a very tough position with serious doubts about my ability as a programmer. I wanted to dedicate the first session with him to assess whether or not I shall do something else with my life. But with Roemer's mentorship I managed to no only to steer things around, but also achieve great things. After doing some exploration on what motivates me as a programmer, we set the ambitious goal of landing a new job within six months. And not just any job, a job where I could thrive. I have recently accepted a great offer for a new job, after getting the highest possible score in my new employers application tracking system. My passion for programming has been restored. The goal was achieved in almost half the time. Roemer has vast amounts of interesting experiences from his career to draw from, which makes his guidance and mentorship inspiring yet concrete. His communication skills are out of this world. Observing how he seeks clarity, uncovers context and simplifies problems has been an incredible learning experience for me, which not only made me mature as an engineer, but also as a person. I count myself very lucky to have been mentored by him, and I can’t recommend him enough.

I was transitioning from a senior to a staff engineer role, and during that process, I realised I needed external advice from an experienced person. I found Roemer, and from the first introductory meeting, it was clear he is precisely the person I'm looking for. We met for two months, and all sessions were valuable. Roemer is an exceptionally knowledgeable mentor in his field and always gives you multiple perspectives on how to approach every situation, even when you think you have few.

Roemer was terrific. Very knowledgeable. Lots of helpful advice. Really friendly, supportive.
We will send you a quick email if Roemer has new open spots for mentorship, and only in that case!
