Jorrit Wijtsma

Payments Consultant - UK

What makes working for PaymentGenes unique?

In my opinion PaymentGenes has a unique proposition; we use specific industry knowledge of the niche market of payments to achieve success. Within this industry, we assist other specialist organisations with their growth projects and by increasing the value of their human capital. We do all this in a professional, consultative and spirited way, which makes our proposition unprecedented.

What are your strengths and weaknesses?

I bring positive energy to the room. I am present, and interested in what I'm doing. People describe me as a kind and pleasant individual to be around and I am willing to work hard. My enthusiasm sometimes takes over from my structured approach, at which point I have to keep things in perspective. However, I always try to enjoy myself.

What would you say is the most interesting fact about you?

I am actually pretty handsome.

How would you describe the company’s culture?

Young, ambitious, energetic, fun, professional, crazy and balanced. Did I say energetic already?

What’s the laziest thing you did so far?

Today? I let my colleague make coffee for me. And it is only Monday...

What’s your nickname and why?

Jorrito Bonito. Because it rhymes. Like Busta.
