About

TLDR: Technologist and entrepreneur. I am experienced in most areas of the tech stack, including cloud, big data and love to build great things using the most recent tools! Being a founder and founding member of two startups (so far) I have developed a pragmatic, strategic and business oriented mindset that enables me to contribute far beyond deep technical knowledge and insight.


My educational background is entrepreneurship and CS+AI/Machine Learning, and I am currently playing around with tensorflow for solving small problems (skill level beginner). On the hosting side, I work with serverless technologies (Firebase, cloud functions++), Docker / Kubernetes, Appengine, Heroku and many more. I love to automate all the things, and I believe fully managed services are the future. Big fan of the principles and practices of devOPS / chatOPS. Good knowledge on Web APIs, web services and microservices / architecture (and using the right tool for the job). 


I am polyglot both in languages and types of problems I work with: Java, python and javascript, ES6/7: Angular.js, react/redux, node.js, gulp / grunt / webpack, django. Mobile location/BLE-focused SDK development. Lightweight java frameworks such as dropwizard and spring boot. Scala / Akka / Play. Proficient in Go and Clojure and some F#. Very good knowledge of Google Cloud Platform, (big) data processing/transformation and tools such as Pub/sub, Dataflow/Beam in Java/Clojure as well as BigQuery.

Experience
UnacastPlatform Engineer & Founding Member2015 - Current
Joined the company pre funding as the first technical person in after the founders, as a part of the founding team. After raising seed capital I was in charge of hiring more great engineers to help us realize our vision of building the Real World Graph™ - understanding behaviour in physical spaces and utilizing the data for fun and profit. Prior to raising seed capital, I built the first version of our platform. I later built Proximity.Directory (https://www.proximity.directory/) as part of our joint efforts in helping the industry reach its potential. I work with everything from client calls to Big Data engineering, building SDKs / APIs, Frontend, Product development and strategy.
