We believe that free and happy engineers achieve better results for our clients. That is why we have based our model on autonomy, relatedness and competence.

As a partner within THNDR, you have the freedom to arrange your work according to your own wishes. In addition, 70% of the value you create ends up in your own budget. Together we configure the ideal composition for your situation within our partner model. You should think of benefits such as an unlimited number of vacation days, bonus month to spend freely, mobility of your choice, pension of your choice, fitness subscription, studies, training, gadgets, but in particular a free choice in your own assignments and a voice within the company.

The
70
/ 30 model

The THNDR Partner Model is based on a reward structure in which each partner benefits maximally from the value they generate. We also call this the 70/30 model, in which 70% of the delivered value always accrues to the partner. We make this completely transparent, what you see is what you get. This also ensures that at the end of the year we don't have to have a dull conversation with subjective salary increases, but can enjoy Christmas dinner together! You have the security of a permanent job with the freedoms and financial upgrade of self-employment. Best of both worlds!

What you can expect at THNDR

Immediately a permanent contract as a partner within a strong and experienced team.
Working from freedom and responsibility.
Maximize the value you realize.
Celebrate successes together! Work like a captain, play like a pirate!

Thanks to the partner model, I know exactly where I stand and I can organize my assignments and commitment myself. It gives me the freedom to make my own choices and to take advantage of all the benefits that THNDR offers. In addition, I think it is important that I have a voice within the company to work together on, for example, innovations to improve our work or make it more efficient.

The Founding Fathers

Oh hello there, we're Erik and Kees, and this is the story of how THNDR was born

During a lunch in the Wilhelminapark on a sunny afternoon, Erik Schurink and Kees Brinkman were philosophizing about how you can build a company where the employees can take maximum advantage of the value they provide and are still connected as a team. Not as an employee but more as a partner. From freedom and responsibility without all the boring things you have to deal with as a self-employed person. Without the independent risks, so just with a permanent contract. The idea of THNDR was born.

Erik and Kees know each other from the work field, which they have both observed from different perspectives over the years. THNDR was forged from this cauldron of different insights. Solid as a rock!
