De Correspondent is a Dutch-language, online journalism platform that focuses on background, analysis, investigative reporting, and the kinds of stories that tend to escape the radar of mainstream media because they do not conform to what is normally understood to be 'news.'
It was launched in September 2013 after raising more than 1 Million Euros from 15,000 donors in just eight days' time, setting a crowd-funding world record in journalism.
I was the lead backend developer for both the crowdfunding platform and the platform itself; and, with my colleagues, developed the core system and its APIs for both the funding site and the platform itself.
