Assignment carried out while owning MarijeHofland.nl (via Hero)

RTL Weather & Traffic wanted a new product to make "traffic" an important pillar within the department, next to the weather. Through different apps, a website and television, they provide users (main focus on commuters) with relevant traffic information, both before and during their trip / commute.

During the creation of this project a full concept needed to be created and the full product (consisting of several webservices; back-end; website; apps; television production) needed to be created.

For this project I was the Senior Online Project Manager / Technical Project Lead / SCRUM master, as well as the product owner during the concept phase. Examples of responsibilities:

  • (technical) co-ordination
  • quality assurance
  • risk management
  • time management & planning
  • project documentation
  • concept development
  • SCRUM master-role:
    - introduction of SCRUM within the department
    - training and coaching of developers and product owners
    - facilitate and lead SCRUM meetings and activities
    - making sure people use the SCRUM framework
    - monitoring velocity and burn-down rate / create planning & cost estimates
    - protect the team from distractions and interferences and identify & remove impediments
    - manage team resources
  • Product owner role during concept phase. During the make-phase I coached the newly recruited product owner in SCRUM.

Buienradar is one of the most visited websites in The Netherlands. Their rain radar is visited by millions of people each month.

For this project I was the Senior Online Project Manager / Technical Project Lead / SCRUM master. Examples of responsibilities:
  • (technical) co-ordination
  • quality assurance
  • risk management
  • time management & planning
  • project documentation (e.g. project brief, PID, scope definition, reporting, PHR, etc.)
  • SCRUM master-role:
    - introduction of SCRUM within the department
    - training and coaching of developers and product owners
    - facilitate and lead SCRUM meetings and activities
    - making sure people use the SCRUM framework
    - monitoring velocity and burn-down rate / create planning & cost estimates
    - protect the team from distractions and interferences and identify & remove impediments
    - manage team resources

Buienradar 3.0 RTL Nederland / Buienradar
BUIENRADAR 3.0
Assignment carried out while owning MarijeHofland.nl (via Hero)

Buienradar is one of the most visited websites in The Netherlands. Buienradar was aquired by the RTL group a few years ago. Since then small changes have been made to the website and apps have been created. The overall concept, however, is not thought to be future proof and does not take into account the massive shift from web to mobile devices and the way people consume the weather - and information in general - both now and in the future.

During the concept phase I was the Senior Online Project Manager. Examples of responsibilities:
  • co-ordination
  • quality assurance
  • concept creation together with the team
