  • I am Tim Betlem, 33 years old, married, and a father of two children (6 and 7 years old) from Zwaag. In my free time, I engage in sports four times a week and can often be found along the handball and soccer fields. I also enjoy the occasional social gathering.

    At Talpa eCommerce, I work as an account manager in the Local Sales department. What makes the job appealing to me is its diversity. Together with my partners and team, I strive for the best results every day. Whether it's supporting a newly started beauty salon in building a customer base or optimizing the capacity of a large restaurant. I do all of this with a fantastic team where we support each other and have a lot of fun.

  • My name is Manon, 34 years old, and I've been working at Talpa eCommerce for about 8 years now. I started as a web editor at ActievandeDag. Meanwhile, I have progressed to become the manager of the content team. My team writes the most creative texts for our Dutch brands, even when they have to write about the umpteenth cookware auction. Our current focus is also on implementing SEO and conversion strategies in our deals, auctions, and blogs. In addition, I always strive to support them in becoming even better. No day is the same, and there is always room for growth. That still makes my job enjoyable!

    When I close my laptop on Monday, you'll find me on the grass field next to our office, where I, along with other sporty colleagues, participate in a boot camp training every Monday. In my hometown of Noordwijk, I often find myself on my yoga mat for a yoga or Pilates class. Where am I happiest? That's at my parents' beach house on the Heemskerk beach.

  • Hi, I'm Danny, 31 years old, and I'm from Julianadorp. My passions are mountain biking, gaming, and working on cars.

    At Talpa eCommerce, I work as an IT Engineer (support+). What makes my job so cool is that I genuinely help people with on-site issues, getting to know everyone in the company a bit. It's a social and versatile job where you continuously solve various challenges. Additionally, I closely collaborate with other IT teams to address more complex issues.

  • Hi, I'm Sjoerd Gooijer, 28 years old, and I work as a supply chain planner at Talpa eCommerce. In my free time, you'll often find me on the tennis or padel court, or else in the pub.

    What makes my job appealing here is the continuous interaction with suppliers and colleagues. Whether I'm involved in inventory planning or coordinating logistics, there's always someone with whom I can exchange ideas or who can support me. Best of all, I have a lot of freedom to shape my role according to my own insights. This allows me the opportunity to improve processes, benefiting both my colleagues, customers, and suppliers.

    Besides work, there's always room for relaxation. Regular drinks or parties are organized, and there's always someone up for a friendly game of table tennis, even if the level of the opponent sometimes falls short.

  • My name is Ali Yuce, and I come from the vibrant city of Istanbul,Turkey. I thrive on experiencing new things. Exploring new places is exhilarating, but what truly captivates me is immersing myself in the culture and activities of those places. Recently, I discovered a passion for snowboarding, despite a few tumbles along the way. It's a challenge I embrace with gusto.

  • Hi, I'm An, 38 years old, and I live with my family in Zulte, Belgium. For a year now, I've been happily working at Talpa eCommerce, and I haven't regretted my switch to this company for a moment. It's truly fantastic here; a dynamic company with a great atmosphere. You have plenty of freedom to make decisions on your own or get creative.

    As a Strategic Manager, we delve into the latest market trends, analyze what resonates with our target audience, and seek ways to enhance our offerings. Alongside my sales colleagues, we constantly reach out to new potential partners to strengthen everyone's business.

    Talpa eCommerce itself is a Dutch company located in the lively Amsterdam. Working in a Dutch company as a Belgian has its advantages: direct communication, quick decision-making, respect for diverse opinions, and of course, the occasional jokes about their accents and expressions ;-) Our Belgian team consists of about ten people, and we operate from the MeetDistrict in the Ghelamco Arena in Ghent. Even though I'm not a KAA-Gent enthusiast, it's a fantastic place to work, with the added bonus of an Albert Heijn nearby for some treats.

    In short, I've never had a boring, quiet, or hungry workday!

  • My name is Huib Plemper, 30 years old, and I'm from Amsterdam. In my free time, I enjoy being with friends and family for drinks, dinners, or parties. But I also love a relaxing evening on the couch. To balance things out, I also engage in some sports.

    At Talpa eCommerce, I have been working in the Business Intelligence (BI) department since 2019 and have been the Manager of Business Intelligence since 2021.

This supports making data-driven decisions within the company. The work and the department bring a nice mix and dynamic between Business and Tech, offering exciting challenges!

    I feel at home at Talpa eCommerce; I have challenging and varied work and collaborate with smart and enjoyable colleagues. Additionally, there are regularly organized fun activities such as Bootcamp, Game night, drinks, and parties. And for relaxation during work, the occasional game of table tennis. A good balance between work and fun!

  • Hello, I'm Migél Smolders, 27 years old, and I live in Eeklo, East Flanders, Belgium. Whenever I can, you'll often find me in the mountains, both on the ski slopes and on my motorcycle. And every day, I manage to burn myself while cooking.

    As a Category Specialist at Talpa E-commerce, I experience how my diverse tasks contribute to the success of auctions on platforms like and Managing my portfolio in the Travel & Leisure categories, predicting demand, and advising our Sourcing & Strategic Category Management team on potential partners gives me a sense of involvement and responsibility.
