Android Developer

Team Lead / Android Developer @ PlayPass

I have over 9 years of development experience in Java with a strong interest in frontend technologies. In the last couple of years I fell in love with the Android ecosystem and became a full-time mobile developer.

Because of my background in Java backend and web application development, I have the ability to handle complete projects. Next to my experience with Android, I have also worked on Ionic 2/Angular 2 hybrid applications. Starting from the technical design of the app and its backend, to the final deployment in the stores, I know the tricks to bring the project to a good end while following the agile principles.

My passion for mobile development makes sure that I keep track of the mobile landscape and different technologies related to mobile.

Mission

I use technology to help people, allowing them to focus on what's truly important.

Team Lead / Android Developer @ PlayPass

from june 2016 to present day

PlayPass has developed an innovative new software application that uses RFID and NFC technology to transform the humble wristband into a device allowing event organisers to manage crew, artists and crowds; create exciting new ways for the public to interact with brands at events, both in person and via social media; and create a safe and secure cashless environment.

Most of the hardware used to scan wristbands, take orders, do topups, etc. runs on Android or Java. I maintain and implement new features for these devices.
