About & Hire me #


Hi. I'm Marcel. I'm an independent software engineering consultant. I have a strong background in the clean energy sector (solar panels, electric vehicles). I've worked on data and monitoring platforms, custom business line software, and integrations. I focus on bringing simplicity, clarity, business-focus, and automation to the work I do.

Past projects #

Marcel did an excellent job in boosting our new Big Data team on Predictive Maintenance here at KLM. Right from the start, Marcel showed great technical skill, involvement, and enthusiasm. Eager to perform and coach the people around him, he kick-started our initial efforts and helped us deliver Prognos - Big Data platform for predictive maintenance analysis.

Short bio #

I studied computer science at ETH Zurich & Charles University in Prague. After flirting with academic research, and management consultancy, I returned to engineering.

I did projects in Scala, Python, Javascript/Typescript, Clojure, and worked with many stacks: backends, frontends, cloud, dev-ops, machine-learning. There was a period I focused on open-source, some examples are here, here, and here.
