About

"Martin is not only one of the most talented engineer I was lucky enough to work with, Martin understands product and pro-actively suggests ideas for growth and engagement."

Frédéric della Faille, founder and designer at Checkthis/Frontback

I am a computer science PhD turned into web/mobile developer by the love of code. What I love about programming is solving people problems while creating things out of thin air.

I have an extensive experience bringing software products from concepts to production, as well on the backend or as an iOS or Android developer. I also know my way around Javascript frontend quite well.

I am currently a freelancer working for Instaply.

You can contact me at: madewulf@multitasked.net

I am active on lots of web communities, most importantly:

If you are looking for information about the research that I did during my PhD, your best bet is probably Google Scholar but you can also find some information on my old university homepage
