- What are fun projects that you’ve worked on?
Pioneering with a small team on something like search engine privacy back in 2006 was exhilarating. We couldn’t believe online privacy was something that did not exist… We came up with the idea of creating a search engine that wouldn’t profile or track users – and now, all of this privacy is combined with the most relevant search results available on the internet.
Seeing Startpage nowadays serving more than 10 million private searches daily is exciting…
- Why did you choose the HSD Campus?
Our small team started to grow and we were looking for flexible, representative office space in The Hague that could grow with us. An additional advantage was we were among other people in the software security arena, which helped us meet like-minded people. These factors, combined with great accessibility, made the choice quite easy for us.
