eMotivo GmbH

Web Developer

Continuing my work at eMotivo GmbH I oversaw and realized projects ranging from small CMS-based websites to larger scale business applications with thousands of users. It was my responsibilites to accompany and oversee a project from its planning phase, through the implentation, to the final handover to the client, as well as ongoing support for past projects.

For larger scale business applications I have made significant changes in the development of an in-house PHP framework and CMS. This framework builds the basis for many larger scale projects we realized at the company in the past years, for example a large customer relationship and inventory managment system for real estate rental managment.

We also provide clients with web shops where it was my responsibility to design and implement APIs interfacing with various inventory management systems and working together with external service providers.

Part of my work also included maintaining, refactoring and rewriting legacy projects for clients.

I also took on responsbilities in maintaining the internal Microsoft Windows-based test environment, the internal Linux-based test environment, as well as the Linux-based hosting environment for clients.

Furthermore I realized many websites using various current content management systems, depending on the clients needs and wishes, mostly using Typo3 and Wordpress.

eMotivo GmbH

eMotivo GmbH is an agency providing design, web and IT solutions to clients. During the apprenticeship I was involved in realizing web applications, websites and web shops for clients, working closely with the client and the in-house design team.



PHP has been a very flexible solution for almost every problem I encountered in my professional career so far and I have been using it every day for the past eight years. Both modern frameworks as well as completely in-house solutions offered great paths to meeting a client's need. It's flexibility has made it a good choice for me to realize both small websites as larger web applications.


Part of my responsibilities at work was creating responsive websites and user interfaces using HTML5 and CSS3


Go offered me a great combination of systems language capable of good perfomance and a fast and slim way to solve both system side as well as web based problems. For private projects it has now entirely replaced Python or any other scripting language because of it's straight forward syntax and clear ideomatic approach.
