Hi. I'm Remo @remoblaser Blaser 🤟
I'm a Head of Engineering with more than 10 years of experience in a variety of domains. Since 2023 I've been working for Carvolution, responsible for the whole engineering departement. Besides that I'm into cloud infrastructures, bleeding edge technologies and microservices for various side projects.
While there isn't a Wikipedia page about me (sorry folks!), a media bio is available below.
In my role as a Director Innovation & Technology for STARK Esports, I was responsible for the whole engineering department, creating our very own SaaS solution called The Esports Software used by customers all around the world, some servicing thousands of users.
My work involved coordinating the engineering team, serve as a connection between the upper management and the team, define and establish new strategies but also reporting back to the investors and dealing with everyday IT issues.
At JLS DIGITAL AG I was able to gain a lot of experience as a squad leader, leading a team of 6-8 developers in Switzerland and abroad. Additionally I've I was part of the development itself, creating apps with React Native, backends with NodeJS & Java and making sure our Kubernetes instances are doing what they're told.
Besides my work, I've reserved some of my time to work as a freelancer. This ensures I'm able to work with bleeding edge technologies and keeps me up to date with the whole software landscape. Writing down all the things I learn on this blog.
