Welcome Chris Schraepen!

Welcome back Chris Schraepen! We’re excited to reintroduce Chris to our team. With his past experience at Cubis and fresh insights, Chris joins us at Aivix to help drive our brand forward.

Why did you choose Aivix?

It was an easy choice really. When I left Cubis 4 years ago, Aivix didnt exist yet. Over the years I kept in contact with Wim en Jeroen. When Aivix was founded, I got to know Tom and later on Arne as well. Our ideas and vision meshed very well, so I made the choice to return. For me at is important to keep an open mind when determining how to design and implement any analytics use case or a corporate wide data strategy and that is exactly what Aivix offers. We are not bound to a single cloud or any analytics tech stack. We architect, design and implement based on what is best for the customer and their needs.

What did you do before Aivix?

Before Aivix, I was responsible for the data analytics platform and operations at Melexis. Our goal was to maintain the platform and provide the abstractions and templates needed for the data engineers and business developers to develop their own data products. It was a nice, code heavy experience with a lot of challenges from provisioning infrastructure using IAC, to creating CICD templates for deployment and writing abstractions in python to facilitate data pipeline orchestration and common data processing use cases.

Who do you look up to and why?

Oh boy, I will probably bore you with this one. I look up to people like Richard Feynman, Marie Curie, Carl Sagan, Alan Turing,… Their significant contributions to science help us understand our universe and power the countless applications which we too often take forย granted today. I also like Matt Groening, Seth MacFarlane, Trey Parker, Matt Stone,… so many good laughs!
