Hi, my name's Rosamund!

I'm a Berlin-based software engineer with experience building dynamic, CMS-centred applications, as well as extending complex internal software for the infrastructure sector as part of a Scrum team.

Currently, I am helping a feminist organisation create a new data analysis tool for social sustainability in the workplace.

As a former translator and editor, my work in tech is motivated by the commonalities of the human experience and the spectrum of nuances in human expression and perception. Needless to say, I'm a big fan of clean, self-documenting code.

Background & interests

How I got into coding

I'd experimented with HTML and CSS before, but got into Python by accident, really. Check out a little bit more of my origin story.

Creative writing

Other ways I get good use out of my keyboard: I've just finished my first novel draft and have a few other writing projects on the go. More on that here!

Community

Inclusion and equal access in all areas of this industry are really important to me. I've coached at Django Girls and, as of autumn 2021, Frauenloop.
