Hello! I'm Marc Broers. A "Software Engineer & IT Architect" born in the Netherlands and currently living in Amsterdam.
My personal mission is to leverage technology to empower individuals and organizations to become more productive, creative, altruistic, and fulfilled.
Through my expertise in designing and building innovative software solutions, I aim to create tools that enable people to better connect, collaborate, and contribute to society. By developing user-friendly applications and systems that are accessible to all, regardless of their technical skills or background. I believe that by leveraging the power of technology for good, we can create a better future.
FindNFund is a startup that is revolutionizing the process of requesting funding as a charity by providing a web-based platform. I joined as a Co-Owner and Tech Lead in 2022 to help bootstrap the company and be responsible for the product & development team.
In 2018 I joined Musjroom as Co-Owner & CTO on its mission to provide unique and cheap stays to travelers. I had a great journey with the team by creating such a beautiful company and product from scratch. I left the company while it was active in more than 20 countries in 2021.
Freelance Software Engineer & IT Architect (2015-NOW)

Because tech started out as a hobby and later on became my full-time occupation, I had to start searching for new hobbies! Currently, I spend my free time reading about philosophy, entrepreneurship, and tech (of course). I've also started with some small creative hobbies like photography and learning to play the kalimba/mbira.
