Syl Delissen

Innovation & Marketing Advisor

Though I’m broadly educated, my focus has always been on creativity and strategy. I started as a product designer, but along the way I got more and more interested in the processes around creation and creativity. For almost ten years now, I work with startups and small businesses as a brand strategist. Alongside, I work for Hogeschool Rotterdam (Communication & Multimedia Design); teaching skills like concept development and creative research. When I heard there was a position as innovation manager at Aquatic Drones, I did not hesitate for a moment and applied; I already knew AD does not only work on innovations in the technical field, but also in their business and project development. Being in dept involved with Aquatic Drones gives me the opportunity to combine my interests in startups, design thinking, brand strategy and my warm heart for the environment all together.

Viktor Kajml

Embedded Software Engineer

I am a software engineer with experience of working on various projects: robot arm manipulators, autonomous guided vehicles, medical devices and industrial automation. Originally I studied robotics but I ended up focusing a lot on embedded systems because I was curious to learn how computers work on the deepest level. That means I developed in a programming generalist: able to design and write both high and low-level software. What motivates me is: curiosity about technology, passion for the environment and a desire to keep learning and challenging myself. For me, a job is not just about making money. I want my work to also have meaning. For this reason, I'm very excited to be part of Aquatic Drones and getting the opportunity to contribute to a company that has so much potential for creating a positive impact.
