Firsthand experience

You discover that a certain part of an application in the Jenkins server crashes. What do you do?

To find out where the problem lies exactly, you start looking for the cause at the backend. It seems that this is not due to the automated script, but because of a code that has been amended. You then inform your team about this and explain that this piece of coding is hindering the functioning of the application. You ask whoever made this amendment to restore it. Once this has been done, together you test whether the problem has been solved.


The growth path within Athlon is not fixed. You are given the freedom to develop yourself personally, and you have the possibility to follow job-related courses.

Tim Renes (34) - Relationship Manager

Why did you decide to work for this company?
I was looking for a job that would give me the opportunity to build client relationships and that offers a commercial challenge. This role was the perfect match for me. Due to a severely changing market in mobility, every day is different. In addition, Athlon thinks along with its employees and hard work is accompanied by fun.

What was your previous job?
Customer Service Manager - Create2fit.

What do you do in your spare time?
Playing soccer, travel, watching movies and discovering different dining spots.

Frank Teunisse (42) - Senior Driverdesk Officer

Why did you decide to work for this company?
After my studies I was a car salesman for a few years. After this period I had a few other job roles but I missed the cars. When Athlon was looking for people, I immediately applied. Now I can combine my passion for (electric) cars with my other motive: helping people. These subjects come together at the Driverdesk. I have been working at Athlon since 2008 and always with great pleasure!

What was your previous job?
Sales Advisor at ABN AMRO.

What do you do in your spare time?
Watching Formula 1, playing golf and doing activities with my family.

Doreen Ravensbergen (46) - Claim Officer

Jan-Marcus Mol (39) - Coördinator

Why did you decide to work for this company?
Before I started at Athlon I was working at an SME company.

I now have a very nice job in a dynamic department where no day is the same. This means that I preserve my challenge and passion.

What was your previous job?
Senior Maintenance Officer.

What do you do in your spare time?
Diving and traveling.

Traveling, running and reading.

Eric Tjin (46) - Senior Accounting Clerk

What do you do in your spare time?
I like to visit car fairs, but I also enjoy making a trip to special places.
