👋 Hi! How’s it going?

My name is Jan Steffen.

I am from Limburg a.d. Lahn, a small city between Cologne and Frankfurt. From a small village called Lindenholzhausen to be specific. In 2010 I moved to Hamburg after I had finished studying computer science (B.Sc.) at the University of Applied Sciences Gießen (THM). In Hamburg I continued studying computer science (M.Sc.) at the University of Applied Sciences Hamburg (HAW). In 2020 I’ve moved to Frankfurt am Main. In 2022 my little family found a new home in the Taunus called Oberems.

I am married and have a little daughter. In my free time I like to travel, play guitar, singing, producing, skiing and taking photographs (see some pictures on Flickr).

I am working as the Tech Lead of a team which provides an internal cloud platform for the company. So doing lot’s of platform work. Apart from that I still ❤️ coding very much.
