software developer

Hi, I'm a software developer and computer science student from Vorarlberg, studying at TU Wien. In the past I have done internships at World4You Internet Services and Omicron Electronics, where I used Javascript, Typescript and Python to build useful software.

I currently work at Elektrobit, where I work on automotive software written in Java and C.

This is my space on the internet, containing various projects and experiments that I like to work on. Some of them can be found on Github. If you would like to be notified of new posts you can subscribe to my rss feed.

If you would like to get in touch, you can reach me via jakob.g.maier@gmail.com or via social media.
