Dominic Umbeer / About

Thanks for visiting my website. My name is Dominic and I might have crossed your path in one way or another... with or without glasses.

I have been working as a software engineer for several years now and luckily I have been able to turn my passion for technology and startups into my job. I help young tech companies to build the best solutions by trying to find the right balance between quality and speed.

My focus lies in building scalable and reliable distributed systems. Understanding general concepts, problems and solutions is more important to me than being a specialist in any particular technology.

Currently I’m highly focused on building the technical foundation to enable and boost blogfoster GmbH's further growth. This does not only include the technical part, it also relies on hiring the right people.

Personally I'm really interested in system operations. Ideally startups will grow at some point, yet the operations of services and systems are often not totally thought through. I try to fill this gap by building infrastructure which powers the business constantly.

I’m also very interested in the building and managing of an efficient developer team. Underrated by most companies, this is the number one factor for success.

Starting and developing several side projects has helped me, as an engineer, to also bring business considerations into my daily work.
