šŸ‘‹ Hi there, I'm Raymond Muller

I like solving problems and creating stuff, and programming is just one way I scratch this itch.

I have solely set up several mobile and web apps from scratch and helped startups turn their MVP into a full featured product now used by thousands of companies or users.

I have been working remote for the past 7 years. Mainly full-stack development, but wore many different hats throughout the years and have experience mentoring other developers and managing teams.

Currently: Engineering Manager at Brandwatch.
