Working at an university & freelancing
Currently I'm working half-time as a scientific assistant at the Justus-Liebig-Universität in Giessen, where I'm in charge of the technical development and support of the Online-Self-Assessment (OSA) web application.
Apart from that I'm working as a Freelance Frontend Engineer looking for interesting projects using Angular, React, Redux, vue.js, GraphQL, Node.js or other current technologies. Right now I'm working for the awesome team at GraphCMS.
Frontend Engineer at a creative agency
During my master degree and after my studies I have been working for die.interaktiven GmbH & Co. KG as a Frontend Engineer. At that time the creative agency had a variety of customers that I worked for like Leica, Mövenpick and SMA.
Finishing studies as a Master of Science
While doing my Master of Science degree im Computer Science and Media at the Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen (THM) my focus were web based applications and data mining.
One of my projects was a browser based video editor realized with Backbone.js and Node.js. Another time I used an Arduino, WebGL, Java, Processing and WebSockets to control animations on a LED cube/matrix.
There even was an Adobe Air based application connected to a multitouch table via TUIO to control presentations I was involved in.
First experiences at a web/flash agency
Back in the days when Adobe Flash was still a thing, I was a working student at Scholz & Volkmer where my main tool of course was Adobe Flash, ActionScript 3, After Effects and sometimes Adobe Flex. At that time I learnt a lot about graphics, videos and animations when creating advertisements for Panasonic and Coca Cola.
Starting to become a Bachelor of Science
Apart from learning the basics of computer science I wrote my bachelor thesis about a mesh network of Arduinos pushing real time data to the browser using WebSockets or Adobe Flash – because at that time WebSockets' support in browsers wasn't that great.
