Richard in a few words

I have worked in several domains with different roles mostly in brown field projects. Core aspects have been:
> Java, some Kotlin, more Python recently, Javascript/Typescript.
> Further development, redesign and design of complex software systems.
> Experienced in software implementation for mobile (Android), backend and frontend.
> Practice in administration of linux system and cloud (AWS).
> Experience with geospatial data in the mobility and transportation domain in PostgreSQL / PostGIS and SQLite (mobile) databases.
> Experience in project coordination and management.

I'm curious to learn new things, open minded and interested in working on eye level.
In my work I have acquired as broad knowledge about technology and IT-projects and am still eager to extend it.

Based on that I like to find appropriate approaches for solving the problems at hand and to pragmatically build systems that are reliable and productive.

I like hackathons for the intense discussions, the open exchange with persons from different backgrounds and the astonishing results a small team can achieve in a short time frame. For longer and more complex tasks I prefer working in a calm environment.

Currently I invest some time to get experienced in the ML/AI area and corresponding to that look into embedded systems (sensor data, edge computing) and VR (simulation for training). I expect that ML/AI will become a standard part in almost all future software systems.
