About me

Picture of Jonathan Krause

Hey, my name is Jonathan — I would call myself a front-end software engineer (you know those job titles). I am currently living in Berlin, Germany, working full-time as a Software Engineer at eBay Classifieds Group, where I mainly concentrate on programming with JavaScript based software architecture embedded in a micro-service oriented landscape. Agile development with Kanban or Scrum influence my daily work since 2010.

I am a passionate web developer, believing in Unix philosophy form- and function-wise. I love effective and fast user interfaces that bring real value to people. I appreciate logical, user-centered design approaches. Therefore I strive to use technologies and methodologies that deliver the best possible user experience, trying to concentrate on simple, focused and concise development.

Besides that I love nature, obsessed with riding motorbikes and enjoy people that take themselves not too seriously.

This is version three of my website. You can also have a look back at version one and version two, if interested. With version three I forced myself to write English to improve my language skills. So there are german as well as english posts on this blog.

Feel free to send me a tweet or just drop me an email whenever you want. You can find me also on Github and occasionally on Xing or LinkedIn.
