Based in Europe, working remotely
We aim to make art accessible to everyone.
Gerard is always full of ideas, seeing possibilities in everything. Inspiration for LocalStudio came from his mother, who is an artist struggling to get her artwork displayed, and from the empty walls above his couch. After obtaining his bachelor’s degree in Business Commerce, Gerard started working as a product manager for Samsung Mobile. Later, he developed his product management skills further at KIWA. Gerard enjoys cooking, watching movies and making silly jokes. He is the proud father of a daughter, and currently lives with her and his girlfriend in Voorburg, the town he grew up in.
Ivo is into operations and optimization. After having achieved a master’s degree in Process Engineering at the Delft University of Technology, he started working as a hands-on engineer for ExxonMobil in Rotterdam and Milan. He is currently living his dream in Berlin where he is learning how to program. Ivo is a semi-pro golf player, has a big passion for electronic music, and, like his brother Gerard, manages to find plays on words where you would never have expected them.
Maarten has always had a big passion for computers. He taught himself how to code at the start of high school, and ran an online gaming community a couple years later. After having finished his bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Economics at the University of Leiden, he moved to Barcelona to start working as a developer for Typeform. This year, he joined Maze, working remotely from Barcelona. Maarten likes to be active in his spare time, practicing skiing, kitesurfing, and hiking. Maarten and Ivo first met each other when they were only a couple days old, and have been friends for as long as they can remember.
