With 15 years of experience as a full stack developer I have actively shaped the technological backbone of businesses in different industries such as cyber security, online gaming and knowledge management.
On the frontend I have extensive experience in creating highly interactive web applications with React, Angular and PixiJS. On the backend my experience ranges from NodeJS/Express to Laravel to Wordpress to Golang. Additionally, I am fluent in git, and comfortable in Docker and AWS.
I believe that the work of a software engineer includes more than technology. A significant part of my job is asking the right questions: understanding the client and the goals of a project are essential to its success.
Both from a personal and professional perspective, I am very interested in the effects of emerging technologies — such as contact tracing apps — on society. I am currently enrolled in the masters programme Science-Technology-Society at the University of Vienna to put this interest into an academic context.

Robin Sulmann, Managing Director Begame (November, 2016)
1,5 years ago, we've hired Thomas for a short project of 3 months. Now 1,5 year later he's still one of the main pillars within our company who worked on, and finished the biggest project in our history as a lead developer.
Thomas is a real professional who can lead a big project to the next level. He's a highly experienced full stack developer who thinks commercially and in benefit for the company as well. Thomas is a real team player and will not avoid any good discussion how to move forward, because that's how he thinks, always going forward.
I will miss him as a person and as one of the best lead developers I have worked with.
In conclusion, I would highly recommend Thomas. He will be an extremely positive addition to your organization.
Harry van Mierloo, Founder at Ontwerper.com, UXMC (August, 2020)
Kasper Mol, Tech Lead, Poki for developers at Poki (August, 2020)
I worked with Thomas both in a professional capacity for a longer period, as well as doing a 2-man web game project for a couple weeks in South-Afrika. Thomas is not just a very skilled full stack developer, but really enjoys the business and product side of what he's working on. That's what makes him a good developer, he'll always make sure that he's working on the right thing before he writes a line of code.
Olf Uineken, Co-Founder and CTO of Milkymap (August, 2020)
I hired Thomas as a senior developper for our front and backend development projects. His work is always accurate and his energy level is high. I really appreciate his feedback, always honest and to the point.
