I am codedrift

Founder of Einsen und Nullen.
Software engineer at sipgate.

About me

I am a fullstack engineer with a passion for quality software products. Developing and using lots of software for over 10 years has taught me that there is so much left to do. Working at an industry leading agile company like sipgate made me realize that established work models need to change and the time has come for a more inclusive and learning oriented culture.

Besides playing guitar, mountainbiking and gaming i enjoy trying new things all the time. It opens up new perspectives and allows me to combine that knowledge with software.
