Jordi Wippert

I like to build things. From the ground up, rebuilds, and improvements as long as I can remember. I love to work on ideas, designs, software and companies, but I certainly don't mind building Lego, machines, bikes, or other hardware.

After playing around with Dreamweaver and a HTML/CCS book as a kid, I started to build more and more during high school. I made software that could recognise objects via a webcam, a program that indexed every part stored in a paternoster cupboard, and later on started a company in web design and development. Doing a bachelor's in Communication and Multimedia Design, mainly focused on web development, fitted the direction perfectly.

At the end of CMD, I joined Blendle for a five-month internship, and more than two years of full-time work followed. I graduated doing (another) internship, writing a thesis with the title: “De kiosk die ik altijd al wilde".

After going straight from my bachelors into a fulltime job, I decided that I wanted to extend my in-depth knowledge and started a master's in Computing Science at Utrecht University while continuing part-time at Blendle. I obtained my master’s degree after a graduation project at ING Bank, with the thesis titled "Change Impact Analysis for Rebel Specifications".

My current time and focus are at The Selection Lab, of which I am co-founder and CTO.
