At the same time I’m starting a software product business for the construction industry, including customer research, product design, development and sales.
I have more than 15 years for experience in software engineering. Things I’m good at:
Join a project that has a large code base and is in trouble, and move it slowly but surely back to a place where it’s reliable and productive.
Start the basic infrastructure with minimum effort, pick the right tools and services to run a system with minimal effort and maximum reliability and performance, including the collaboration tools necessary for remote style work.
If your system has to work against multiple APIs, it’s a difficult problem: what to do if one of the operations fail? While it’s hard to achieve perfection, there are solid ways to handle the 99.99% of cases correctly, so that support can easily deal with the rest.
Favorite technologies right now:
I use Ansible for automation.
I’ve worked quite a bit with Objective-C, on both mobile and desktop, but would opt for React Native for many mobile uses now, because it’s cross-platform.
I like reactive programming, and have used ReactiveCocoa for successful mobile apps.
I’m going out of my comfort zone in order to grow. In the last year, I used cold-calling, cold-email, extensive customer research interviews, as well as plain sales, for my own product. I’ve become successful in all these areas eventually.
I’ve done Technical Due Diligence, from both perspectives, subject and examiner.
I’ve done product design and UX in the past three years, for individual features or entire products, using mostly Keynote, Sketch, and Invision.
I’ve built up and managed a small team and their tool chain for effectively working remotely.
In the adtech space I helped build a whole system from the ground up, as second engineer on the team, and subsequently brought it to the point where it was acquired, as one of the biggest German transactions in that year.
I’m happy to work with you if we’re a good fit, and my schedule permits. Send me an email or fill in this form. I respond within 24 hrs.
