Hello everyone – it’s finally that time. After finishing my Master’s and a bit of a break I’m finally looking for a job.
Who are you?
I’m Tobi, online I’m better known as PragTob. I’m a Berlin based full-stack engineer (with a bit of a tendency towards the backend) and deeply interested in agile methodologies, web technologies, software craftsmanship and teaching. I contribute to a variety of open source projects (e.g. Shoes, Hackety Hack and after_do), engage in a multitude of community events (e.g. Ruby User Group Berlin), enjoy attending and speaking at conferences.
My favorite programming language at the moment is Ruby and it’s the one I’m most experienced with, along with my favorite implementation JRuby. Naturally I’m also interested in other programming languages, these days mostly Clojure. As for frameworks, I’ve done quite some work with Ruby on Rails, writing applications and teaching it at workshops and courses.
You can check me out more online, including profiles etc., at my website. Of course, looking around this blog can also give you a pretty good idea of what I’m like.
What are you looking for?
A great job of course! Working on interesting problems with nice colleagues in an interesting area, where I can learn new things. I’m mostly interested in web development and related technologies. If the company supports the community and contributes back to open source (or even has an open source product!) – all the better!
I prefer working in an office with my co-workers, working together, pair programming and discussing options in front of the white board. That said, other options are possible. I love open source and am used to distributed working on open source projects, for instance.
At this point in my life I want to refrain from working for advertising companies, banks and the likes. Moreover, I really want to stay in Berlin for now, it’s a great city with many great companies. Something super awesome would have to come up, to make me move. Also, a job where I’m away from Berlin most of the time is probably not ideal for me.
Well if I sound like someone you want to work with or if you want to figure out if you want to work with me, please go ahead and get in touch 🙂 You can shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
