About Me

Who I am

Hi, I'm René! I'm 29 and from Hamburg, Germany though I work and/or travel around the globe at the moment. This is a place to get to know me a little better.

What I do

University
I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Applied Sciences in Hamburg. Instead of specializing in one topic, I chose a variety of things such as IT security and database design.

Work
I worked in the eCommerce startup scene for ~3 years. This work involved:

  • Designing/data modelling with MySQL databases
  • Automizing tasks with PHP (Laravel), Java, JavaScript or Python
  • Process BI information
  • Writing product feeds for Amazon, eBay etc
  • Implementing lots of SOAP and REST APIs
  • Scraping websites and browser automation
  • Working 100% remote, no office
  • Coaching new employees and oversee freelancer work
  • Coming up quick with creative solutions and implement them
  • Working with people from different cultures and languages

At the beginning of 2018 I will start something new.
