    Specializing in creating performant, good looking products, with a focus on business. I've worked hard to gain and maintain a balanced skill-set which has allowed me to pursue many exciting things in my career. I thoroughly understand the big picture of systems, business, and technology. Over the past 5 years a large focus of mine has been building and scaling iOS, Android, and web products to millions of users. During this time I shipped over 16 of my own products, held several positions in the top charts on both the Apple app store and the Google Play store. I've shipped many more products and systems for businesses. Helping others build and refine their businesses and products is massively rewarding, and a huge passion of mine.

    Web Developer

    Germany - Last active: 3 months ago

    I am a web front- and backend developer comfortable in the the PHP/JavaScript/MySQL stack as well as in the RoR framework. Prior to moving to freelance web-development I worked at Panasonic Germany and have gained considerable experience working with other SQL backends besides the MySQL-server. Extensive knowledge on improving the performance of critical web-apps by optimising various aspects of database communication are a valuable tool I can bring to any web project. I am confident my skills in this area will be something, you likely will not find with many other web-developers. In general I prefer working on projects in the RoR framework but also other projects in web development that adhere to reasonable MVC or otherwise modularised design. I am more than capable of producing reusable solutions in these, that will not add to the technological debt of your project. Quality, reusability for other developers, proper documentation and (if the project scope allows) testing are standards I try not to deviate from and strongly advise potential customers to also adhere to. Despite the above goals I am able to produce results competitively fast. Failure to meet deadlines is an absolute no-go for me. I have contingency plans in place, that will allow me to deliver results no matter what. Additionally I will not over-promise on estimated time-requirements for a project. In rare cases, when starting a project from existing code, of sub-standard quality I might have to set certain limits on up-front estimates for the required time. This rule applies mostly to work outside of MVC frameworks and very large code bases and will likely not affect your project. In these cases, I will make you an offer on estimating your project needs, before moving to the actual project. Working in teams also is no problem to me. I have a strong working knowledge of GIT and SVN. I am confident though, that working with other centralised version control systems, will also not present an issue to me. No matter your project, working with me you will get results completely in line with the contract and always on time. I constantly keep my knowledge of the technology I work with up to date, so solutions delivered will not only provide good value today, but also in most frameworks be safe for a reasonable timespan.
