About me

Hi, my name is Jan and I'm a half German half British Web developer born in 1989 in Nuremberg, Germany. I currently work as a Senior Software Engineer at MatchManao where I am responsible for the whole software stack for our platform and the platform itself. In my spare time I mentor anybody who wants to try their hand at programming or who wants to get better at programming — so if you're interested drop me a line at me [at] janhohner [dot] de, on Mastodon or on Twitter. I'm always happy to help, especially if you're just getting started.

Founder & CTO - UniCoach

As the technical co-founder of UniCoach I built most of the software for the startup — both the class schedule tool and the web crawler which gathered the data for the tool from 30 different German universities' websites, importing several million webpages to date. This enabled us to grow a loyal user base of more than 20.000 users. We also managed to secure big German brands such as Barmer and DATEV as our customers.
