Computerprogrammierung Host-Systeme Rechnerarchitektur Front End




By nature, I am inherently curious and always interested in understanding how technologies function beneath the surface. Fascinated by graphical interfaces, I wanted to explore it further, so I started experimenting with programming. Since the age of 9, I have been engaged in hardware architecture, and programming became part of my journey at the age of 13. As a result, I now have a deep understanding not only of frontend development but also of how my code utilizes resources in the host system and the limitations of the technologies I employ.

Frontend JS Typescript Architect
Exaring AG (Internet und Informationstechnologie, 50-250 Mitarbeiter)

The Exaring AG is a German company specializing in the development of innovative technologies for digital entertainment. Its flagship product is the streaming platform

My task involved the development and migration of various services within the company. Here is an excerpt highlighting the main responsibilities:

Web Player: The main task was to develop a web player that aimed to expand the product offering of with a web-based solution. The web player was a greenfield project. It was part of my daily responsibilities to translate design concepts into React components and shape the application architecture. Over an extended period, we utilized Storybook as a tool to optimize communication and collaboration between designers and the product team.
As evolved into a significant player in the streaming industry, the requirements for our product also grew. The microservices backend architecture was continuously expanded, necessitating corresponding adjustments in the client architecture. Additionally, I was involved in maintaining and managing the JAM stack environment, significantly contributing to the selection of relevant technologies.

Customer Registration: This React project focuses on creating a seamless and user-friendly user registration experience. The web UI offers a clean and intuitive interface, guiding users through a straightforward registration process. It includes interactive form elements for users to input their information, with real-time validation for enhanced accuracy. Additionally, the project integrates state management to ensure a smooth and responsive registration flow, enhancing the overall user experience.

Customer Care Cockpit: This full-stack React project involves creating a comprehensive customer care cockpit crafted to help employees assist customers efficiently. The web UI utilizes React to deliver a responsive and dynamic user interface, offering employees a seamless tool to manage customer inquiries. This includes functionalities such as customer search, an overview of customer payment transactions, and details from payment providers. The system enables employees to process refunds, apply voucher codes, and request support logins, as well as the possiblilty to reuqest temporary access to users' accounts. Following technolgies were involed: React JS, Node JS, Appolo

Development Stack: At the beginning of the project, we managed each application in its own GIT repository. As this became increasingly cumbersome over time, we opted to switch to a Monorepo. To assess the pros and cons, a proof-of-concept was developed, and ultimately, we made the decision to proceed with it. From the start, I emphasized the importance of code quality, package vulnerability, and the bundle size of the delivered apps. Throughout development, all code changes were consistently monitored in the GitLab pipeline, and these considerations were incorporated as criteria for the pre-selection of libraries.

UI-Tests: All user flows for registration, customer self-care, booking, as well as individual player features, are covered through UI tests.

Technologies Used: Typescript, Node.js, Express.js, Styled Components: MUI, Stitches.js, GraphQL, JavaScript, Storybook, Esbuild, Zustand, React, Rollup, Webpack, AWS, microservices.

Backend Architecture: Microservices REST API

Applications and Tools: Docker JIRA and GitLab
