Michael Hoffmann - Senior Frontend Developer (Freelancer)

About me

My name is Michael Hoffmann. I'm a freelance software engineer based in Munich/Germany. I hold a Master's in Electrical Engineering from the renowned Technical University of Munich (TUM) and have 9+ years of professional experience.

I work for businesses of all sizes and have experience with small and medium enterprises and corporates. In my career, I have developed, maintained, and launched multiple projects from scratch or improved an existing code base.

Programming is my passion, especially developing complex business applications both in the frontend and backend. I enjoy working as a freelance developer and developing private projects. I write blog posts and do talks because I like to share my knowledge with others. Therefore, I also try to share most of my projects on GitHub.

You might know me as Mokkapps on various platforms.

What I Don't Do

Usually, I do not develop simple websites, but I am more interested in complex web applications or mobile apps.

I can provide simple logos or help you pick typography or colors. If you need further help with your brand, I am happy to connect you with a trusted graphic and brand designer.

What is important to me in my next job

I care about people

  • I want to work in a fixed team for longer to build connections, find good ways to communicate and work together and build empathy for each other. In my experience, this makes team members productive–and happy.
  • I want to work in a place that consciously gives explicit room to enable people to build this kind of connection and values the time spent on team building and improvement.
  • I prefer working in a cross-functional team. Collaborating with everybody and every role in my team is crucial to me.

I care about code and quality

  • I specialize in building complex applications based on Vue.js & Nuxt.js.
  • I always develop them with your end-user in mind, as this will help you meet your business goals.
  • I am interested in doing development work in backend & frontend applications.
  • I am reliable and honest with my customers and clients.
  • I produce high-quality, clean, well-documented, and easily maintainable code while respecting deadlines and budgets.
  • I use high code quality standards and static code analyzers.
  • I like to write tests, whether unit, integration, or end-to-end (E2E).
  • I like strict typing in JavaScript, especially using TypeScript.
  • I use modern CSS using Grid, Flexbox, and Animations.
  • I value accessible, valid, and semantic HTML.
  • I create beautifully responsive products that work across various devices and browsers.

I care about the product

  • I want to be part of the discussions on bringing value to our customers and how to iterate over features.
  • I wish for a trustful, respectful relationship with Product Management, where every side respects the expertise of the other, and we communicate about needs–for the product, the code, and also for us as humans in our roles.
  • It is great fun to learn about new industries, especially if the product has a positive impact.

I care about company culture

  • I want to work in an open culture where frequent feedback is appreciated, safe and honest.
  • A company’s values and culture should be actively lived daily–especially during stressful times and when hard decisions have to be made.
  • Transparency is essential. It should never end when the shared information feels uncomfortable or is terrible news.
  • Management actively and visibly drive work on diversity and inclusion forward.
