Work with me
As a consulant and frontend developer I help my clients build web applications. Over the last years I gained experience in versatile parts of the frontend. I worked on feature teams, frontend infrastructure and as the intersection of developers and designers. The work ranged from highly technical infrastructure setup to creative work like building a Design System.
I'd love to get to know your web application to see how I can help out. I work both remotely and in-house. I usually work with React, React Native, Apollo, GraphQL, Webpack, node, and databases and services like Prisma, MongoDB and RethinkDB.
