| a blog by Søren Johanson

I’m a Software Engineer from Germany with over five years of professional experience in teams and companies of various sizes, from small ‘hidden champions’ to multinational corporations. I’ve worked in various industries, from IT service management to real estate, and I consider myself a generalist that’s able to consider different perspectives without being too opinionated.

Here, I mostly write about topics ranging from web application security to entrepreneurship.

I’m available for hire in Europe on a freelance basis. If you’re interested, you can schedule a call using Brevo. A plain-text version of my CV is available here.
