Work history
Laska.io2018 - 2020
Laska is a visual collaboration platform for React apps. Running my own startup gave me an invaluable experience on every side of the software business. I learned much about marketing, customer support and product development. From an engineering standpoint, we pushed the limits of what is possible in the browser.
Moneytree (Tokyo)2017 - 2018
Moneytree is a personal money management app that aggregates information from your bank accounts in realtime. Starting out at the frontend side, I helped convert a large Angular codebase to React. After that, I had the chance to work on internal projects leveraging various parts of AWS including Lambda and Alexa.
Cogent Labs (Tokyo)2016 - 2017
Cogent Labs is an AI company converting handwritten Japanese characters to digital text using deep learning. I worked as a web and mobile engineer, allowing scanning of handwritten text using just a smartphone.
CouchCommerce (Germany)2012 - 2014
CouchCommerce (now Newstore) was an e-commerce startup that created a mobile app that allowed webshop owners to quickly have a mobile app. I worked as a frontend engineer pushing the limits of HTML5 when responsive design was not yet mainstream.
