Full Stack Dev at Your Service

Services

Please find my services here.

Hybrid Apps with Cordova / Ionic

Modern and cost-effective, for iOS, Android, and Windows operating systems. For smartphones and tablets. Using professional continuous integration software like TeamCity or Bamboo and task runners like Gulp or Grunt help significantly to launch your software in budget and time. And we can talk about clean code policy, automated End-2-End and Unit Tests to keep your software stable and maintainable.

Collaboration Network

Without constant input from professional communication folks my app project would have ended in a dead end pretty soon. And it is fun working with them! Please contact me and I'd be glad to get you in touch with 3 internationally operating agencies in Berlin and Munich area. And if you need smart and cost-saving development and test support from Remote-Siberia (really remote !) please also let me know. These guys are amazing in .NET, Java, Testing, and native Android:
Digital Mind Development Krasnoyarsk / Siberia

Responsive Design

Being responsive will raise your conversions as you help users find their way. Just one template for smartphone, tablet, and desktop lowers your development costs.

Backend as a Service (BaaS)

Choosing a BaaS makes your application scalable and usually decreases downtime. Save maintenance and security costs. I can help choosing the one closest to your needs and setting it up.

Web Analytics

Content is king. And UX a princess. But new sites and apps are in danger if your legacy products are still online, but neglected. Let's also take care of that.

Project Management

Modern tools like leankit for kanban enable teams to visualize their work in progress, identify bottlenecks, and deliver releases on time. But motivation, trust, and fun are the key. I can drive your project.

System Analysis

You have a big migration or integration project in front of you? Take your time in analyzing all connected systems and workflows. And come to an agreement about the requirements with all of your stakeholders. To keep them as simple as possible I can assist you.

Brainstorming Sessions

Please also invite me for concepting sessions, defining the MVP and target audience, or just to have a coffee or beer and get to know each other (this would be my party of course).

Industries

Take advantage of my experience in wholesale, retail, business consultancy, telecommunications, and of course, software and app production from scratch. If your business takes place in a totally different industry, this would challenge me.

Holger Kraatz

 

In 2000 I first got in touch with IT business - during my internship in a consulting company in Virginia - and immediately became passionate about programming. That's why I started in this industry after finishing my studies in Industrial Engineering and Management. And never regretted this focus on technology.
