Hi, I'm Clemens

I'm a tech lead at Microsoft in New York City (ex-Amazon). I work on diverse cutting-edge projects with partners and develop open source solutions. I'm also the lead engineer of Ascoderu, a tech-for-good non-profit, and a committer on Apache libcloud.

Software development

I've worked on all levels of the stack, including frontend, backend, devops and machine learning. I've led teams, designed system architectures, mentored junior engineers and shipped a whole lot of code.

Here are some keywords of technologies I've used, in no particular order:
  • React
  • TypeScript
  • Node
  • Python
  • Java
  • Scala
  • C#
  • Bash
  • Docker
  • Kubernetes
  • Azure
  • Scikit-Learn
  • Spark

I read and review software-related books. I also make craft cocktails.

I love exploring new places and have lived in Togo, Mali, Zambia, South Africa, Germany, Scotland, Ireland, Canada and the United States.
