Problems and solutions of a freelancing software engineer
Benjamin Hopfer – Curriculum Vitae
I was always strongly interested in problems of all kinds, especially riddles, math problems, and algorithmic problems. After my Mechanical Engineering education in high school I studied Computer Science at the Graz University of Technology in 2004. Between receiving my Bachelor’s degree and starting my Master’s studies, I worked as a Software Tester with IBM in Brussels and fell in love with being a world citizen.
During and after my Master’s degree I was the main architect and developer of a new life
insurance calculation core at the Grazer Wechselseitige insurance company. It went on to
replace three older life insurance calculation cores of the company and its subsidiaries.
After I had integrated these replacements I left the company in 2014 to become a
location-independent freelancer. Nevertheless, I’m still consulting and developing in this
project for a couple weeks each year on-site in Graz.
Other than that I work primarily remotely. However, for interesting projects, I’m also willing to temporarily relocate to anywhere in the world to progress or kick-off a project on-site.
The technologies I mainly employed lately are:
I’ve also been toying around with Android, GoLang, Solitidy/Ethereum, .NET Core, and others. In addition I’m always interested in discovering new technologies and will adapt my rate accordingly during the learning phase.
I’m looking forward to hearing about your project and discuss my availability at email@example.com .
