Hello! My name is Joost van Poorten. After finishing both my bachelor’s degree Industrial Engineering and master’s degree Operations Management and Logistics at the TU/e, it was time for the next step. I recently started my first job at Bright Cape as Junior Data Scientist. The combination of a data driven approach and open-minded colleagues make Bright Cape the perfect fit for me. Solving complex problems and providing value using data analysis gives me a lot of energy, especially while working in teams to celebrate a job well done. 

In my spare time I like to play football at the local student football club in Eindhoven where we formed our own team with friends. I also work out in the gym thrice a week and play some games or watch TV series in the evening. Furthermore, I love to hang out with friends in combination with a beer or a glass of wine in the weekends.
