Hi , I am
Midstrup .

Experienced Backend Software Developer

about me

I put pride and passion in what I do, I'm eager to learn, like to explore new technologies and also like to share my knowledge.

Experienced senior software developer with knowledge about diverse business domains, cloud development within Azure and AWS and a flair for architecture design and agile methodologies.

Primary software fields and languages are the .NET framework (C#/F#), Infrastructure-as-Code using Terraform, containerization, Linux and Windows servers and various types of data stores, including SQL Server, MySQL, Postgres and Elasticsearch. I have vast experience in creating CI/CD pipelines using Git and handling DevOps – both development, deployment, operations and observability. For the past 5 years I obtained a deep understanding of Apache Kafka, applying event-driven design, making integrations and how to use it in big organizations.

Through my education, I got knowledge about how to apply a holistic mindset for understanding business requirements and architecture design.

I like to drive innovation within the team, being proactive about learning new technologies, finding new ways of solving problems and meeting both business, technical and non-technical requirements.

As an ambivert, I thrive in both digging deep into code bases as well as socializing with my colleagues, making a good atmosphere in the workplace.

Being a certified Scrum Master and holding the role in many teams through my latest employments, my focus is always on how to optimize the way the team works and ultimately delivering within deadlines – increment by increment.
