Android, iOS, and Ruby on Rails

I am now looking for a Android,  iOS Swift  or React-Native project as senior developer or a managing position as in ScrumMaster, Development Team Leader, App Architect in or around Rotterdam! 

Currently branching out into functional programming with Clojure and Haskell. The Clojure and Haskel thing is more of a self study and I expect the knowledge will benefit my overal programming ablility.  It is clear to me that Javascript is ruling everywhere now for a while as it is the only language which has solutions for every level of the stack and with a little planning business and other code logic can be shared from the server to the client. Further building the same functionality on multiple platforms is madness. So a hybrid solution for mobile apps is a given, however native understanding of the platforms are still required. 

I started programming seriously in 1999 after I received my BS in statistics and economics at Western Michigan University (U.S.A.), before then it was just a hobby. From that moment on I have evolved with the industry as devices, languages and tools changed giving me experience with many different systems, languages and people. I started doing mobile application development as my primary work in 2010.  My sales pitch is: "I do mostly high quality pixel perfect work with an uncanny ability to meet unbelievable deadlines" or "I make the impossible possible".

I am a fullstack developer and do the normal things all creative developers do like programming, api design, app architecture, security, planning, team leading, team building etc.. etc... I am also pretty good in graphic design, Sketch is preferred. I speak and read Dutch fluently and I write Dutch in a way that is understandable but not grammatically correct.

Android or iOS? I strive to be well accomplished in both, last year I have been maintaining both for flavors of apps for multiple clients. Being knowledgable of the native app building on both iOS and Android has an advantage when using hybrid solutions like React-Native. 

When I make websites or apis at the moment I prefer to use Ruby on Rails. However I am slowlying leaning more and more toward Javascript solutions, with React and Nodejs. 

I am always interested in hearing what the next project will be, whether big or small so please contact me if you have something: / m: +31 643069248
