Embark on Your Journey:Find a Mentor & Grow with Peers


About me

I'm a software engineer, team lead, consultant, coach with over 10 years of experience in all kinds of environments/teams (early startup, corporates, long-term employment, short freelance gigs...). I specialize in web frontends (React 7+ years coding and teaching, Vue, vanilla). I also worked full stack (backend: PHP, Java/Spring, Ruby/Rails, NodeJS, infrastructure: AWS, terraform...).

I have many years experience in coaching as a volunteer (https://www.opentechschool.org) and recently also as a professional mentor for beginners, juniors and seniors.

I love to help you grow technically (deep frontend specialization or becoming more full stack), in code quality and communication (code reviews, explaining and convincing others) or how to approach building complex products and agile methodologies. I will be happy to pair with you coding, review your code and give you feedback, and share my way of working. I speak 

English and German.
