Anton Pirker - CV


CV / Résumé

Senior software engineer.

I understand that the job of an software engineer is creating positive business impact for your company. Good at identifying what is good for the project/company. Getting things done attitude. In the beginning of my career I already did my fair share of over engineering stuff. I stopped doing this.

Great at remote work and excellent in written and spoken communication. Good in communicating complex technical topics to non-technical people.

Likes to shape a experience in a team that lets everyone thrive.
