Fullstack web development is my strongest discipline.
I was lead frontend developer at EyeEm, a dedicated backend developer at GoEuro, and a senior fullstack developer at Soundcloud.
Building interactive single-page apps, large e-commerce platforms, APIs, and even small Wordpress sites is something I'm thoroughly experienced in.
Android was my first love and I've spent several years as a full-time mobile developer.
This includes work on Soundcloud's native Android app, with nearly half a billion downloads. If I can handle that kind of scale and complexity I can build you a great app!
I've also worked in IOT at geeny.io with arduinos, raspberry pies, and custom hardware. I helped build an API on top of the AWS IOT framework.
At SoundCloud I was responsible for the deployment and maintenance of hundreds of critical-path servers using Docker, Kubernetes, and Amazon Web Services.
Our services handled thousands of requests per second - from all over the world.
I built my own profitable startup on AWS infrastructure for rendering 3D models online. It spends a lot of money on my behalf to rent servers so I had to ensure that every test case was accounted for. Security practices were also paramount to ensure that machines were secure and users' files were private.
Let me design your infrastructure, maintain your servers, or migrate your business to the cloud so you can enjoy lower costs and higher stability.
I believe better data means better business decisions - that's why I started my own BI consultancy.
Whether it's basic Google Analytics, custom database migrations, or a complex Tableau dashboard you'll be surprised at how valuable business intelligence can be.
My name's Jack and I'm a fullstack web and mobile developer. I've worked for some of the best names in tech - in creative captials like Berlin and Melbourne. For a full resume please see my website. Below is a condensed reference.
Scala, AWS, Firebase
I left startups to start my own. I built a profitable online 3D rendering service called CloudBlenderFarm. I created every aspect of it, including design and marketing campaigns. The infrastructure is built in Scala Play and AKKA. It dynamicallly allocates AWS EC2 GPU machines to customers and remotely runs rendering software on them. It was a fantastic learning experience. I advertise with Google Adwords, Facebook, Youtube and Twitter. I handle payments via Stripe and logins via Firebase. Everything else is done programmatically in AWS.
Scala, Java 8, AKKA, NodeJS, AWS IOT, Firebase
I worked as a contractor for Telefonica Germany's R&D offshoot Geeny. I wrote APIs in Scala and Node that managed a complex IOT ecosystem of custom hardware built on the Amazon IOT platform.
Scala, Java, NodeJS
I wrote Scala APIs and Node applications on an epic scale at SoundCloud. With over 150million users and hundreds of microservices, code had to be stringently tested and of the highest quality.
Java, Scala, Spring, Play, AKKA
GoEuro is an agile and energetic Berlin startup that brings bus, train, and air travel together in one place. I worked as a senior backend Java engineer designing and building a brand new RESTful API, which was consumed by many applications and thousands of users daily. It also handled tens of thousands of euros in payments and had to be extremely secure and robust. It called many external parties, and dealt with sensitive information such as addresses and payments. It was a critical system, so bullet-proof testing and clear code planning were paramount.
DevOps, Wordpress, Docker
I served as Tech Lead at the Berlin digital agency MoreSleep. I assisted in hires, managed the developer team, scoped projects, and lead development. I also used my experience in larger companies to modernize the studio's workflows and implement new development and deployment architectures.
NodeJS, React, ES6, Flux, PHP
EyeEm is one of the most famous startups in Germany. I worked there as a full stack engineer building a NodeJS-React isomorphic single page web app.
Backbone, Angular, C#, PHP, jQuery, Android
Monkii is a leading digital agency in Melbourne were I worked for two great years as lead front-end, mobile and wordpress developer.
