Hello! I’m Sebastian.

Seasoned and pragmatic software developer currently working with Scala/Playframework, Akka/Akka-http and Angular4-5 to deliver fast and reactive web applications for a couple of clients. Additionally, I have over 10 years of professional experience with Ruby on Rails and enhanced, created or shaped applications in the business, educational and medicinal sector. Always a fan of well-thought domain-driven design preparations with the client before writing a single line of code, as to have everybody on board for an agile software development experience without premature over-engineering while staying true to commitments and costs. True to software-craftsmanship, I emphasize the use of comprehensive tests for every deliverable  for maximum confidence in every use-case and to bolster up maintainability and safe refactoring.

Having used or set-up myself a few CI/CD pipelines and quite a number of virtual machines for production, I am able to deliver, maintain and administer software on Kubernetes clusters and can get my head around various server provisioning tools (formerly utilized Chef a while back). 20 years of Linux experience and having installed/configured almost every major service or database surely helped my clients more than a few times.

I am able to consult in the areas of general IT down to specific (software) implementation or strategy decisions, drawing from my formal education,  business experience and and trained observations, and I’m not into proposing sudden bold moves without thinking and researching first!

As a very happy husband, father of two wonderful still-young children and experienced remote worker (European time-zone), I am a perfect fit for a remote position with moderate to none travel as a freelancer or family-compatible office hours in Hamburg. Both as preferred freelancer or employee.
