Working on projects which require creative & solid development lead /
guidance, implementation or ideas. Not just focused on code, but also on
quality, design perfection and optimised UX/UI.
Been developing for 10 years now, always exploring new code and ideas.
React, Redux, Node.js and reusable UI Libraries are my focus.

Joined the enthusiastic group of creatives at Gruppr. Adding my development skills and giving a professional opinion in a way I can be of value within the team. Builind a platform for gamers to find gamers with similar interests to play with.
Grew from Senior to Lead within the company. Quality assurance, optimising workflows and sharing my knowledge within multiple teams — pushing the projects to its next level. Things like enthousiaste people, building modular frontend frameworks, checking if the final product is as designed & assure overall quality are a few things I’m passionate about. Getting development alligned with design is key and enables us to deliver high standard products.
My role ranged from coding projects, to giving talks and guiding peer developers. Worked with peer developers as well as Lead Designers to build the best available products.
After some years at Supersteil and a growing studio, I got promoted to Technical Director. Meaning I was still working on project, but also putting more time and effort into directing technical projects and investigation the technical part of the studio. These are things like our workflow and the way we could optimise and automate steps during development. Also, innovating and new (input-) devices have high priority.
A four month internship at Supersteil in my third your of college. Worked on several projects and learned a lot about Flash and Databases. (Which was cool back in the days.)
React, Redux, CSS Modules, rich animations.

React, Redux, RxJS setup for a new internal tool.
A lot of user- & internal-data to be handled seamless on the screen which you can quickly change and gets auto-saved. Goal was to reduce the time spend on this task and improve experience. Also build a complete UI Library of reusable components (DRY).
Started with BackboneJS, transformed it in the end to React, Redux,
Worked on the first release + updates (3 periods) of the Tommy Hilfiger in-store digital retail environment, piloted in London. Several different modules were built, for touchscreens from iPad to 8K resolution. Nowadays it’s globally available in Tommy Hilfiger stores.

Photographer project with custom CMS. Room With a View is a steady growing online travel guide for voyagers setting value on hotels with a view.
“Simon was a great help for us at Random Studio, working on the Frontend interface of an in-store digital retail environment. He easily adapted to our codebase and had no problems with last minute changes, debugging and requests. Also he was very much fun to have around, hope to have him on board again soon!”
“This dude is the best front-end and overall development guru I've ever had the chance to work with. 'Impossible is Nothing' its his slogan, Adidas just copied it.”
“Simon is not only a great mentor who supported me during my internship and graduation but also an excellent developer. He makes designs pixel perfect (even if decimal pixels have been used) and asks all the right questions. When he foresees a problem, either technical or design, he will not hesitate to try and solve them together with the team and client.
He is well organised and communicates everything very clearly to everyone involved.
During the past years I've worked with him on countless projects and I'm proud to have been able to do so.”
“As our Technical Director, Simon is leading our tech team and responsible for making technical decisions for our company. Simon is very precise and his work is highly detailed. For me, it is great to have someone reliable as him within the company.
We worked on several projects together. Simon is very clear in his opinion and does not hesitate to share his thoughts with the team, in order to create great products and gain happy clients. It is very comfortable not having to worry about the quality of someones work.
Hopefully we'll work together on great projects for a long time!”
“Simon is a very accurate developer who knows exactly what he is doing. Within Supersteil he is of great value and he knows how to push limits on every level. He understands design and that is what makes him stand out as a developer!”
“Simon is one of those Interactive developers who brings your designs pixel perfect to life with no concessions. Fluid animations and custom code are on top of his list if it comes to develop the next interactive experience.
We've worked on several projects together now and I've seen much growth in the last years. I'm proud he's one of the Supersteilers!
Oh, don't ask him if those are images, he will be insulted ;)”
