Backend Engineer interested in highly scalable, performant, typesafe and observable software.

About me

Who am I?

I’m a Software Engineer, currently living in Graz, Austria, and working remotely for a Swiss startup and I’ve previously worked at a multinational consultancy.

My main area of expertise is creating robust and maintainable software with Java and Spring Boot. I also have experience creating event-streaming pipelines with Kafka Streams, and I’ve done some work on the frontend with Typescript, Angular and React. I really like highly-performant, typesafe code with built-in observability. For more details, check out my resume.

I’m also an alumn of the Recurse Center, a self-directed retreat for software developers. During my time there I worked on interpreters, low-level programming with C++ and functional programming with Scala. You can read more about that on my blog.

A while ago I did a degree in Physics at the Graz University of Technology, where I wrote a thesis on Finite Difference Time Domain electrodynamics simulations in Python.
