My name is Jan Paul. I live and work in Amsterdam. I practice the martial art taekwondo rather fanatically and I run 5km per day although I will never really do that just for fun. I’m trained as an F-16 fighter pilot but at some point I made the switch to my other hobby - writing software. I've been doing that since I was eight years old.

My main passion is on optimizing code and this is why most of my clients are in the web, gaming & media space - any company that's in need of highly performant software.

For the geeks among you, I prefer the programming languages JavascriptJavaScript, TypescriptTypescript with the ReactReact, SvelteSvelte and Next.jsNextJS frameworks please. I'm also pretty fluent in C++C++ and RustRust and, out of sheer programming pleasure, ARM and Motorola 680x0 assembly.

Apart from my software activities, I’m also responsible for the hiring process at companies within my comfort zone (media and science, mostly), setting up development teams and making sure said teams are able to do their jobs, without too many distractions.

Check out some of my (former) clients!
