Employment
  • Android Developer
    2017 - 2018
    We Help You GmbH (via Toptal)
    • Developed an app called Weyvee, from scratch and solo, using the latest technologies in the Android ecosystem. The app is targeted at high school and undergraduate students, and allows them to post weyves which are similar to tweets, only anonymously.
    • Implemented a picture editing feature for the Weyvee app that allows users to draw freehand, add text, and add stickers to the pictures they take. This feature is similar to what other apps like Instagram are offering with their stories.
    • Updated an old app, called Abihome, with a range of features like unified registration and login system that works together with Weyvee; it also has an invitation feature allowing users to invite their school colleagues to use Abihome and Weyvee with them.

    • Wrote a casting functionality library for Chromecast. It supports videos, images, and audio tracks with controls like pause, play, rewind, and more.
