Since its opening in July 2017 as the engineering and support headquarters for JW Player’s many European clients, Eindhoven has grown to a team of eight.
The Eindhoven office is led by Jeroen Wijering, co-founder and creator of JW Player and who currently serves as its chief innovation officer. Jeroen is responsible for developing new, innovative products like JW Engage, which uses machine learning to help publishers grow video plays and revenue with automated Recommendations, and Video Player Bidding, a market-changing header bidding solution for video.
