Welcome aboard: EdgeFlow A-team
We are always looking for great people to complement our team. Also fast forward your career as an EdgeFlow developer? Let us know!
Quickly after launching EdgeFlow platform, the EdgeLeap team had a growth spurt! Arne, Nino & Björn joined the team to reinforce our mission to make EdgeFlow awesomer by day. Read their stories first-hand.
Working at EdgeLeap is very educational but most of all, a lot of fun!N. Zijderveld
Only a year ago, Nino joined EdgeLeap to work on his graduation project. He decided to stick around and now is ready to guide the next-gen talent.

My project at EdgeLeap is about laying the foundations of a new graph functionality. The idea is to store relationships between information in a graph model and present these relationships in an interactive visual graph. Relationships could for example be between organisations, between persons, perhaps between persons and organisations or organisations and products. Let’s call organisations, persons and products nodes. A graph would make it possible to see, at a glance, how nodes are related to each other and, perhaps more importantly, why. This would also allow to search for relationships with a specific node. .
Storing the relationships that connect information with each other helps in enriching the information EdgeFlow gathers from the internet for its users. Where before a piece of information stood on its own, information enriched with relationships can provide a more comprehensive view of information. Information on its own shows what is happening. Enriched with relationships, it also gives the context to explain why. New insights can be extracted, because the once invisible relationships between nodes are made visible. It could aid users in answering questions like: “What are my competitors up to?”, “How do we compare to other organisations?”, “What connects our suppliers to each other/other organisations?”. The answers to these questions can then be used to assist in the decision-making process. A graph would allow EdgeFlow’s users to easily traverse the relationships that information holds, providing a way to answer questions only connected data can answer to give users that important competitive edge.
‘EdgeFlow touches on something I had been thinking a lot prior to starting here: ”How can you quickly gather and make sense of all the information on the internet that is relevant to me?”’
