Curriculum Vitae Joost Helberg
|Name||Joost Adriaan Helberg|
|Date of birth||1964-1-11|
I'm a customer-success driven IT-specialist in the fields of PostgreSQL, data engineering and data privacy. The last 5 years I conducted several RDBMS design and data-presentation projects. This was next to running an IT department and selecting Unix engineers.
After years of combining database and software development with being part of the board of a company with 140 employees, I am now dedicated to use Data Science as a means to improve businesses. I'm exploring R and Go next to PostgreSQL as my tooling.
Meanwhile, GDPR attracts a lot of interest, also by me. Tackling GDRP compliance allows me to be inventive with SQL, data-modelling. It also addresses gathering information and analysing and presenting my findings about the compliance gap.
Last, but not least, circularity and sustainability grabbed my interest while being involved in some startups.
