No matter which tech stack (I prefer react-ish, though), I focus on solid architecture and clear separation of concerns. I deploy fast and refactor often in order to deliver high value products.
Why should we spend time doing stuff a machine could do? I setup continuous integration, automated builds, semantic release, etc. as early as possible to maximize saved time by these tools.
🎨 Design Systems
I pioneered the UI Library of Jimdo in 2015. Since then I successfully helped three major companies (and lots of smaller projects) to shift their workflows from waterfall to collaborative. Overall causing huge improvements in accessability, performance and consistency.
I’m an early adopter of serverless, deeply interested in the methodology and honestly cant stand the idea of a running server doing nothing. My service designs fit the constrains of surrounding providers like AWS and Firebase and are micro and maintainable.
With a background in graphic design, I care for visuals and usability. I‘m used to test driven development and also love to write tests for existing code. No matter if unit or end-to-end, I find the best approach to provide stability.
You need to tick in a certain way to build cutting edge products. There’s more than just hard requirements and solid code. I care for the bigger picture, for the team and for clear communication. I’m an agile mind and I try to help on all levels.
I can help you
🧐 Review session
I can be your second mind or other pair of eyes on a particular problem. No matter if it’s just an hour of talking or an extensive review of your application.
You want to learn s.th. that I know? I will give my very best to enable you in intense pairing sessions, no matter your skill level.
I dive deep into a team and try to help and improve in all aspects I see fit. As a team member I work on daily tasks, will try to identify bottlenecks and spread my knowledge.
I love to give talks about what I have learned or am interested in. I also design individual workshops for your team to hands-on teach them what I know and how I work.
Current Location: 🇪🇸 Tarifa
As a digital nomad, I normally work remote and have received consistently positive feedback for my reachability, documentation and communication. But I also like to work on site when it is suitable.
💥 Primary Skills
I use this stuff on a daily basis. As a result I provide the most value when a challenge is somewhere near to this cosmos.
