About Me

Hi! I'm Dennis, a software engineer based in Switzerland who enjoys building things that live on the internet and also power the internet. I develop highly efficient, scalable and distributed backend systems that power seamless user experiences for the end consumers.

Shortly after graduating from Christian-Albrechts-University, I joined the engineering team at freiheit.com where I developed and successfully launched the Mercedes Benz Mobile SDK. Then I became an industrial PhD candidate and joined OriginStamp in Switzerland to explore peer to peer systems in trustless environments.

Here are a few technologies I've been working with recently:

  • Golang
  • Kubernetes
  • Terraform
  • Protoactor
  • Protobuf/GRPC
  • Azure
