About me

Software Development Enthusiast. Eager Learner. Helpful, Team Player. Driver of continuous improvement in products and processes. Clean Coder. Pragmatic problem solver. Climate Change aware -- and eager to fight it. Experience in software development from smallest (8-bit chips, ARM chips) to distributed cloud services. Experience in autonomous driving stack: Perception, Planning, Mapping, Middleware. Experience in clean library design, fast hacky prototypes, algorithmic solutions. Seeking for ways to get involved against climate change. VIM user since 2008, Arch Linux user since 2010. My current position is interesting, challenging and rewarding. In a great team we lay foundations for Autonomous Driving for everyone. Considering climate change, though, a position in the automotive industry feels like being a part of the problem, not of the solution. Please get in touch with me if you have ideas how I can further contribute to a solution.
