Hi. My name is Philipp Rieber.
I'm a passionate software engineer.
I'm 42 years old and 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 GmbH (which was all about payment) and at Session Digital GmbH/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.
- Amazon Web Services
- jQuery Mobile
- Action Script
- Zend Framework
- Symfony Components
- Unit Tests
- JSON Schema
- Social Media
- PHP League
- Hexagonal Architecture
- Symfony Ecosystem
- Design Patterns
- User Stories
- Bash Scripting
- Zend Studio
- Elastic Beanstalk
- Google APIs
- Route 53
- Travis CI
- Twelve-Factor App
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.
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.
