AppMachine makes the creation of high-quality apps easy and affordable. The technology is available for everyone. Our user base consists of people with no code experience, designers and experienced engineers using our more sophisticated technology.

Our Goal: Setting a new standard for the building of (native) apps. We’ve partly reached this goal already. At this moment we are improving and developing even better software every day. There is more to come.

CEO Siebrand Dijkstra

The passionate and pleasantly adrenalized CEO of AppMachine.

ADHD, dyslexia en color blindness have never stopped Siebrand from starting various ICT companies. He also suffers from a mild form of underestimation, which encourages him to explore the roads less traveled. As a result, Siebrand has been nominated for the Deloitte Rising Star Award and was elected CEO of the Year by professional ICT magazine Computable in 2014.

AppMachine is a good example of what one can achieve when founding a ICT company and that it doesn’t matter who you are or where you start your company. Although CEO Siebrand spends a large part of his time in Silicon Valley and San Francisco, his roots are firmly planted in the Dutch province Fryslân.

Siebrand has been an entrepreneur for many years. In 1992, at the age of 24, he founded Quality Netware Tools (QNT), a company that made communication and security software. After having achieved a client base of more than 3,800 companies in 8 years, Siebrand started a new company: Schoolmaster.

With his company Schoolmaster, Siebrand developed the school administration software Magister. In 2009, when he sold the company, Magister was being used by more than 80% of the schools in The Netherlands for more than 850,000 students.
