Computer Science Knowledge

I have advanced knowledge with the following tools since I used them on a regular basis at work and/or for my personal projects.

  • Python 2.7/3.6+ including poetry, pytest, numpy, pandas and many more
  • C/C++ including Conan, CMake and gtest/gmock
  • Bash scripting
  • Docker
  • MATLAB/Simulink
  • Git, GitLab, Jenkins, Bitbucket and Bamboo
  • Jira and Confluence
  • Windows and Linux

For me, having a DevOps mindset is key for doing good work. I strive to have a fully reproducible development environment with explicit dependencies and well designed CI/CD pipelines. I believe in a robust test pyramid strategy and, most importantly, a collaborative team that challenges design decisions.
