Hi 👋, I'm Johannes

I talk to humans and machines and specialize in golang, kubernetes as well as automating everything!

As a consultant and developer, I provide services ranging from DevOps to application development and have a history of completing projects on time and within budget. My current focus is on Kubernetes, Golang, and Terraform but I have experience working in various environments.

Growing up with the internet, I uploaded my first websites to Geocities, served as tech-admin for numerous bulletin boards, and have been professionally coding since 2003. After attempting to build my first start-up in 2006, I learned that success would not come simply because I built it. As a result, I earned a bachelor’s degree in economical psychology, which has greatly enhanced my team leadership and communication skills and allows me to view products from multiple perspectives.

What began as a small agency offering server hosting in 2007 has since evolved into a full-service consultancy and freelancing business, serving clients around the world. I started working when servers were primarily dedicated, experienced the virtual server revolution, briefly delved into serverless tech, and am now immersed in the Kubernetes ecosystem and its container technology. My background in psychology gives me unique insights into team leadership and communication, and I have a proven track record of leading and creating successful international teams.

My preferred cloud platforms are Azure and AWS, but I have also worked on other platforms, including bare-metal and everything in between. I enjoy tackling complex problems and have experience with multi-cloud deployments.

I am currently offering my services as a freelancer and would be happy to discuss potential opportunities involving Kubernetes. If you’re looking for someone with seniority and experience in the field, please feel free to reach out. I have extensive experience with Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, and bare-metal Kubernetes, and I am confident in my abilities.

All of this makes me an ideal candidate if you are seeking a senior-level professional who is flexible, collaborative, and hands-on. If you would like to see what I have been up to, please check the projects section on LinkedIn.
