About Geffrey van der Bos

Hello! I'm Geffrey, a Product Designer passionate about merging music, technology, and user-centric design. My career focuses on creating digital products that balance business objectives with superior user experiences, emphasizing intuitive design and usability.

At Comecer Netherlands, I enhance our software and lead the development of a user-friendly radiopharmacy platform, focusing on technical and user needs to bridge the gap towards innovative solutions.

During my time at Kaios.ai, I led a cross-functional team in the creation of AI models for infrastructure management, from traffic signs to buildings, showcasing my ability to drive innovation from the ground up.

At Bitfactory GmbH, my work in human-centered design addressed various challenges, from conducting user research and facilitating design workshops to collaborating with stakeholders to enforce UX/UI standards and designing engaging interfaces.

With a BA in International Communication from Hanzehogeschool Groningen, I've refined my skills in communication, leadership, and strategic thinking, with a foundation in economics and marketing.

When I have free time, I enjoy exploring cutting-edge technologies, consumer products and exploring how these advancements influence our music experience.

On a personal note, I share my life with my beloved wife, Julia, a brilliant illustrator hailing from Russia with a talent you can witness here.

Our journey has taken us from our home countries to Germany and now the Netherlands. Together with our Shiba Inu, Loki, we've crafted a vibrant multicultural home that enriches our life and work experiences.

I got the pleasure to work under Geffrey’s supervision for a year at Bitfactory. He has been of great influence to my learning experience as I get introduced to User Interface Design, and to the tech industry.

Geffrey is a very eager learner himself and is always seeking knowledge - a way or another - which I find truly inspiring. For years he had worked hard on gaining all sorts of information and experience from all resources available to him when it comes to software engineering and technology, which in my opinion gives him a great edge as a Product Designer, and makes him a truly valuable asset to any cross-functional Scrum team. He is very knowledgable and committed to the best practices when it comes to UX design and makes sure only the best scenario is implemented. In other words, he brings the best of both worlds - Tech and Design.

It should also be praised how he has got a hands on mentality that I've personally learned a lot from. When in need, Geffrey creates his own solution. Which sparks the sense of ownership in both work related and personal projects.

As a leader, he watches closely and caters to his colleagues’ learning needs and experience, and is very happy to pass on all the knowledge he has. He is also very open to constructive feedback which makes working with him an enriching two-way experience. He is very loyal to his workplace and everyone he works with. He is a visionary at heart, and his high EQ allows him to find his voice with clients from all different backgrounds, which is a very crucial quality in a successful Designer.

In addition, being with Geffrey on a daily basis in the workplace is truly fun, as he always brings great humor and positive spirit to everyone around. I’m very grateful that Geffrey has chosen me to work with him and become a part of the Bitfactory family, and I definitely look forward to more learning and collaboration in the future.

I worked alongside Geffrey in the same team at Kaios.ai. I really cherished the time when we worked together. He was one of the nicest guys on our team, who knew the right balance to have productivity and fun in the workplace at the same time. He is the go-to person, with whom you can freely share your professional as well as personal stuff. Besides this, he is a pragmatic, customer focussed, and result-driven individual. One thing that I like about him is his inquisitive nature, the way he keeps himself up-to-date with the latest industry trends, standards, and best practices, and also motivates his peers to do the same. His good communication skills and diverse experience in different IT domains make him a great asset to any organization. Without any doubt, Geffrey is one of the best colleagues I have ever worked with. I wish him the very best in his future endeavors.

I have worked under Geffrey as a Software developer in Kaios for a period of 9 months. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him, and came to know him as a truly valuable asset to any organisation. During this period of 9 months, he constantly demonstrated his technical and communication skills as a Product owner and a scrum master.

His down to earth personality helped us to approach him without any hesitation. He has this great quality to focus on resolving issues and impediments to the progress of the team, and to make sure that all the issues are resolved within the stipulated time. He is a strategic thinker with a strong focus on what the customer needs. He introduced the way of scrum to the company and how to efficiently use it.

He is detail oriented and have the tendency to ask the right questions and to make sure we are building the right product. He trusted his team and took care of all their needs in terms of time, resources and information. It is my absolute pleasure to recommend Geffrey for any lead position. I am confident that he will be a great addition to your organisation.

We worked together on few projects, I can truly say that Geffrey is one of the best professional I know. Customer success orientation is one of the key Geffrey mastered to perfection. Responsible and personal approach to projects which he works on proves that this guy really enjoys what he's doing. This makes him real professional and successful enhancements for every team. If I would establish my own company, Geffrey will be the first I want to have on board.

He is a perfect listener as well as idea giver, with wide horizons on various tech, design and all related topic, always open for suggestions.

I see great success in his future career and I hope to work with him continuously or again in the future.
