Hi, my name is Jan and somehow I recently joined vaamo. I started on the 1st of January as a Scala developer. I’m located in Mainz and work from the vaamo HQ in Frankfurt.

After graduating from university in 2008 I worked as a software developer and later as a consultant at a software service provider in Mainz working on different projects. Besides coding in Java, mainly backend stuff on web related projects, I did some (technical) project management.

There are some really smart people working at vaamo and sometimes i feel like the dumbest person in the room, which is great! Working at vaamo also means transitioning from thinking in projects to products for me, which needs a slightly different mindset I have to learn.

You should talk to me about …

… whatever comes to your mind. I’m totally open to everything but if you need a conversation starter try talking to me about the following topics:

  • Software development, well that is pretty obvious since I’m working as a software developer…
  • Travelling, I love travelling to the northern countries, have been to Sweden, Norway and (my favorite) Canada in the last couple of years
  • Music, especially about the heavier stuff
  • Guitar gear, I love talking about guitars and amps
  • Photography

Another topic you could talk to me is football/soccer, but there I’m really biased (huge Mainz fan), so this could become a very opinionated discussion ;-)

I’m looking forward to work on …

… work on? Work with great people and an awesome team! Otherwise I’m really looking forward to work on a great product and some well crafted code. There is quite some new stuff to learn for me and I’m excited to see what the future will bring for vaamo.
