👋 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. Now I’m closer to family and friends from the time before I’ve moved to Hamburg.

I am a Certified Kubernetes Administrator working as part of the finleap cloud team at finleap connect GmbH. My team and I are constantly improving the compliant and secure Kubernetes platform for financial services we’ve built over the last couple of years.

With more than eleven years of experience as a software engineer working in different companies and using various programming languages, I know the problem’s which developers face in their day-to-day work. At finleap connect GmbH I’ve fostered my operational knowledge operating Kubernetes clusters for several years now.

In my free time I like to travel, playing guitar, singing, producing, skiing and doing photography (see the pictures on Flickr).
