Simplicity is a great virtue, but it requires hard work to achieve it and education to appreciate it.

Edsger W. Dijkstra

Two decades of developing Internet applications, and I still feel I'm just starting out. But the one pattern I keep seeing is this: the simple solution always wins.

I'm a freelance software engineer, and I believe in simple solutions. I am good at listening, but also explaining. I know development, but I also understand the product and business perspectives. I will contribute not only my development skills to your team, but also my experience with coaching other developers, managing and growing teams and products, and supporting the non-technical parts of organizations.


I only have significantly limited availability until Q3 of 2016. Please don't hesitate to get in touch anyway; at the very least, I may be able to forward your request to my network.

Get in touch

My preferred method of being contacted is email – you can reach me at hendrik@mans.de. If you absolutely, positively need to reach me by phone, the number is +49 171 6858501. Keep in mind I spend most of my days with clients, so a lot of the time I will not be able to answer it.
