Hi. I'm Jonathan.
I am a software engineer from Hamburg, where I work at Mesaic.
I am enthusiastic about
product developmentMy motivation is rooted in the desire to create great products that people love to use.
and UX design.
This is how I work:
— Design: Sketching on paper / Prototyping with code
— Tools: Vim / Sketch / Command line
I've studied jazz guitar for a year and have been working as a freelance guitarist since I'm 20. Practicing scales 8 hours a day turned out not to be my favorite activity, so I pivoted and got a BA in Philosophy, after that another one in Computer Science (both at Universität Hamburg). I've been working in tech since then, still playing gigs now and then.
I like to readI track read books on Goodreads.com -> my profile 📚🐛, mainly science fiction and UX booksLast one I read was Sketching User Experiences by Bill Buxton. Recommendation! (I bought loads of Sakura Pigma Micron and Tombow Dual Brush pens after 😜). right now.
I am nerdy/passionate about cooking, wine and coffeeI get a lot of satisfaction out of my new pour over equiment 🤓😍:
Hario V60 dripper, V60 buono drip kettle, Rommelsbacher EKM300 coffee mill, beans from Playground Coffee. Yirgacheffe's the favorite so far—if you got recommendations, hit me up. :).
I'm a proud dad and husband. :)
I love music E.g.:
Niels Frahm, Goldmund
Fink, José González, Bon Iver, Feist
Kendrick Lamar, Mos Def, Q-Tip
Kurt Rosenwinkel, Gretchen Parlato
Steve Reich, Ravel, Grieg
, though I mainly listen to white noise at work. :D
