Hi. My name is Philipp Rieber.
I'm a passionate software engineer.
I live in Munich, Germany.
I'm a full stack Software Engineer. I mainly develop completely customised web applications, APIs and focus on DevOps tasks. Thus, I'm not limited to a specific area and feel equally comfortable on the client as on the server side – as well as on the console, during software design stage, in a Scrum team or when exploring a customer's precise needs.
I'm working as a Senior Software Developer at ottonova, the first digital private health insurance in Germany. Before, I worked as a Senior Software Engineer at Paymill (which was all about payment) and at Inviqa (agency). I evaluated an InsurTech startup idea at WERK1 and worked for seven years as a web developer, team lead and deputy managing director of an internet agency (Onemedia GmbH). Besides, I advise and support some other projects.
For development I use a lot of different concepts, techniques, frameworks, toolkits and libraries - some more, some less.
- Google APIs
- Elastic Beanstalk
- User Stories
- PHP League
- Zend Framework
- Amazon Web Services
- Symfony Ecosystem
- Hexagonal Architecture
- Twelve-Factor App
- Route 53
- Zend Studio
- Unit Tests
- Social Media
- Design Patterns
- Bash Scripting
- JSON Schema
- Symfony Components
- Travis CI
Besides software development, I write and talk about it and like to support other developers. Every free minute I try new tools and libraries, read documentation, do tutorials, check IT news or watch video trainings. I love to constantly learn new things and to improve my skills.
I love to attend software development conferences and workshops. For example, I attended Symfony Live and the Symfony Day several times, as well as some roadshows, presentations or trainings from Adobe, Amazon and Microsoft.
I am co-organizing the Symfony User Group Munich and I do not miss any meetup of the PHP User Group Munich. I'm also an occasional speaker at these User Groups.
On GitHub, I'm maintaining small Open Source libraries and bundles. From time to time I contribute to other projects, preferably for the Symfony documentation. I also like to participate in discussions on GitHub, StackOverflow or various blogs and fora.
Every now and then I write articles and books about software development or translate from English. In everyday work I'm also texting a lot for case studies, references or documentation. Occasionally I blog at blog.philipp-rieber.net.
