Reliable Software Engineering & Data Science

I work with innovative companies, startups and investors to successfully & efficiently get from idea to Minimum Viable Product to production-scale software. From zero to speed.

You want to

  • Apply Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning and Machine Learning to your business
  • Implement your innovative idea professionally and launch to market in a short while
  • Resolve a technically challenging situation, simplify complex or unmaintainable software
  • Coach and organize your team to deliver professional quality software efficiently

I am available to work with you short-term or long-term, remote or on site. My expertise includes data-intensive and IoT systems, fully integrated AI, fullstack from backend to mobile. I prefer to work with Python + PyData because it reduces your time-to-market substantially, in any project phase, from MVP to highly scalable production systems.

Recent Projects

Having worked in senior roles as employee and freelancer in corporates, SMEs and startups my projects cover a wide range from prototyping to highly scalable production software. A few recent examples are listed below.

My credo is to start small and release often, attaining a scalable and maintainable design & architecture, from day 1. This applies to new and existing projects. Stakeholders benefit by getting results early and receive value from features they actually need. I'm experienced with building, coaching and leading local and remote teams and like to keep involved at the code level (so you don't have to).
