Milou van Meurs – Software Engineer – Food & Fine Chemicals

Hoe leg je jouw job uit aan je familie/vrienden?

Mijn werk draait om processen. Ik maak software voor fabrieken, en dat houdt in dat ik machines en de lopende banden tussen de machines programmeer. Meestal leg ik dat uit aan de hand van een voorbeeld van een chocoladefabriek: om chocolade te kunnen maken, heb je vet, cacao en suiker nodig. Die producten moeten eerst in een menger komen, en die menger moet voor een bepaalde tijd draaien en verwarmd worden. Ik zorg er dan voor dat de operator een recept kiest en dat het proces om de chocolade te maken vanzelf gaat.

Elke vrijdag is het bij ons op kantoor shoarma Friday. In pandemietijden is dat iets wat ik ontzettend heb gemist.
