After introducing all other team members, be curious to get to know Felix, frontend developer at cloud solutions. Felix is 30 years old, comes from Stuttgart but lives in Berlin, as he loves the city's diversity.


How and when was your first contact with cloud solutions? How and why did you start working for cloud solutions?

First contact was at the beginning of 2014 via stackoverflow careers, when I replied to a part-time job announcement from cloud solutions. Some days later, we had our first Skype interview, which was very good. We had a nice talk and a lot of fun. That was one main reason why I started working for cloud solutions, because I really like my colleagues. And the job allows me to use recent best practices and to try out new tools and techniques. In addition, the part-time job helps me to stay flexible and allows me to work on other projects as well.

What was your most interesting project you have been working on in your time with cloud solutions?

The most interesting project I have been working on, is the (currently ongoing) development of the Surveylab web service, as this is a huge project in which I can really learn a lot: From planning and prototyping to deciding which techniques and frameworks to use or how the database connection to the current Surveylab project works. But this also means that things have to be re-thought more than one time, and sometimes you have to start all over again - it never gets boring.

Why has 2014 been such a successful year for you?

2014 has been such a successful year for me, because I finished my Bachelors' degree in computer science, started being self-employed, started working for cloud solutions and moved to Berlin.

Were there many new challenges you faced in your working life this past year?

The Bootstrap 3 refactoring was definitively underestimated in time and complexity. Additionally, one of my goals has been to learn writing tests in javascript, which has proven to be quiet demanding.

What projects are you engaged into in your leisure time?

I am developing a responsive, javascript only lightbox and I write blog posts from time to time.

What are your personal goals for the year 2015?

The usual: do more sports and stop smoking (again :D).

Tobias is mainly responsible for backend development at cloud solutions. He is 33 years old, comes from south Germany and currently lives in France. He joined cloud solutions in 2012 and has been engaged in many interesting projects so far.


How and when was your first contact with cloud solutions? How and why did you start working for cloud solutions?

In December 2012 I bumped into a job vacancy by cloud solutions. At this time I was just in a transition period and was looking for a job that I could do from where I live in France and which allows me to continue to work a few hours per week for another job for a non-profit organization. From the first skype call that followed after I applied for the job until now, two years later, I'm very happy that I met the guys of cloud solutions. It has always been positive and I can say I enjoy working for CS as a (backend) software developer.

What was your most interesting project you have been working on in your time with cloud solutions?

There were other interesting projects too, but the most relevant and interesting one was working on the online test platform project (OTP). This is mainly because it was the perfect opportunity in my second year working for cloud solutions to focus on projects that are based on our in-house framework 'SurveyLab'. Being part of the software development team that implemented these OTP projects I could learn a lot and become much more familiar with the software.

Why has 2014 been such a successful year for you?

My employment rate was increased in 2014 to almost twice as much as I worked in 2013. So, two main successful aspects were working in my second year for cloud solutions and working more hours. Since I consider those steps as being successful, 2014 was a successful year for me. Especially since I was involved in interesting projects, as I previously mentioned, and since the mix between learning something new and productively contributing was conducive for this to happened smoothly.

Were there many new challenges you faced in your working life this past year?

Not more then already mentioned above. Definitively not in terms of difficulties, as from my point of view all was happening step by step in a good flow.

What projects are you engaged into in your leisure time?

I do not really have projects going on currently. I like to do sports, which I have not done regular recently.

What are your personal goals for the year 2015?

One general goal is to have a good balance between the various aspects of everyday life.
