What would you like to do?

Enrico Scherlies, B.Eng. Full-Stack Engineer and former CTO
Based in Berlin

I am a full-stack engineer with a focus on backend. I have over three years of experience and been a CTO of my startup Kitabote.

I love Functional Programming and Colemak(-DHm)

Work Experience

April 2017 - ongoing

In the last three years I built a backend with microservices, wrote APIs, released an app for iOS and Android, built a web platform, configured Linux servers, built DevOps pipelines, worked with lambda and cloud functions, wrote tests, integrated payment services, worked with various databases (noSQL, SQL, Graph), built a PWA and wrote software documentation.

I also designed and implemented a suitable software architecture for the respective projects. Some of the technologies I used are React, React Native, NodeJS, ExpressJS, Google Cloudfunctions, MongoDB, SQL, DGraph, (JavaScript), Typescript, C, PHP, Python, Linux..

Recently I learned Haskell (and with it proponents of side-effect-free, functional programming). Earlier on while still studying I also did functional/procedural programming to build engineering simulations in C and Matlab.

April 2017 - July 2020

As the technical co-founder I have build and shipped iOS and Android apps, a web platform, an API, a file server, developed and deployed a microservice server architecture, build CI/CD pipelines, and did analytics.
