It turned out that software development suits me better, so I’m very happy to be able to combine my skill set with my passion to contribute to a better future by building sustainability software at PRé.'As both leader and member of the SimaPro software development team, Rutger is responsible for effective team collaboration and ensuring development of a high quality product.
