Max Kooistra

Management Trainee

When I was little, I had a clear agreement with my mother; before bedtime, I was only allowed to ask her one question, otherwise I would go on and on. Even then, I was fascinated by the universe, nature and mathematics. From my little helicopter, I observe the whole; I see big patterns and have big ideas. However, from my broad approach I do like to make deep dives on specific subjects. That way, I can fully immerse myself in a specific issue in a few days through books, podcasts and documentaries. Seeing the big picture or going deep; that is what I want.





Max’ skills…

Get things moving

With my huge dose of energy, I set things in motion! My brain and body constantly need new stimuli. Through movement, I can physically express my curiosity. This also served me well in top-level sport.


Whether it’s fully figuring out complicated material or achieving the purple belt; I bite my tongue and persevere until I achieve the desired result.

Storytelling & writing

I love new knowledge, especially when presented in a beautiful story. For me, writing is the way to structure my many thoughts. Creating a convincing or gripping story? Yes, I can!


I have an eye for the big picture, even in teams. I often quickly grasp what others can do and where certain knowledge lies. Optimistically, I motivate my team members to express their capabilities.

Max is curious about…

What am I not curious about?! If I had to name something; anything to do with the future, creativity and the technology sector. So much is possible in technology these days, no idea is too crazy. I think my broad vision of the future and creativity would come into their own here.

I worked on this project

Senior Communication Representative at ASML

At ASML I was Senior Communication Representative in the Mechanical Development cluster at the department of Design and Engineering. This department was responsible for the design and development of the mechanical parts of the machines. A branch was the Design Foundation that was responsible for facilitiating the designers. Because there was a constant technical and proces-related change at ASML and to stimulate the collaboration between different departments there has to be efficient communication. In my role I was responsible for the monthly newsletter where all the developments and changes of projects were mentioned. I also had a supporting role for different other projects. The goal of my assignment was to facilitate the technical and human growth of ASML through communication. To be succesful in my role stakeholder-management, communication, and knowledge transfer were essential. I enjoyed having a human role within a tech giant like ASML and it thought me how to best manage my time. I am proud that I could apply the development that I went through at Ormit during my role at ASML.

Max’s tip…

Whatever you believe, it is probably not the only truth. Ha!
