Dennis Roozemond, Release Train Engineer, Dutch Tax and Customs Administration
With a background in physics, Dennis is a strong believer in empirical software development – hypothesize, experiment, learn, adapt. After working as a consultant in service management software he started as a business analyst at the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration.
Finding ways how to introduce shorter feedback loops in the software development process, he was happy to meet a number of early Agile adapters and joined them in the quest for a learning organization and ever increasing business value delivered. On this path he fulfilled the roles of Product Owner, Scrum Master, Agile coach and up until now, Release Train Engineer.
The role of RTE in the ever-changing environment of the Tax Allowances Train is both fun and challenging. Besides his belief in empirical methods, Dennis is convinced that the key to success of any change lies in the people involved and their ability to work together and spark each other’s talents.
