The first years he held the position for the Island Territory of Bonaire, and from October 2010 on for the public entity Bonaire.

At the beginning of his career – from 1992 to 1998 – Thodé worked as a software instructor and system administrator. After completing his law studies, he continued his career in academia for more than 10 years, during which he worked for University of Aruba and University of Groningen, the Netherlands, among other capacities as a lecturer, scientific (senior) staff member and acting rector. He received his doctorate from University of Groningen in 2006.

He will soon become a board member of the school foundation Stichting Scholengemeenschap Bonaire SGB.
