Erik’s background

I’m Erik de Roos, Professional Software Engineer since 2010. Started programming in 2000 using QBASIC on my dad’s 386sx with DOS. Currently I’m a Freelance software engineer available for hire.

I do full-stack software engineering. I have eye for every part of the software development process: requirement analysis, architecture, tooling (CI/CD), building, UX, testing, hosting, debugging/support. And for all the humans involved in the process, I keep an eye out for their well-being.

My speciality is my thorough knowledge on programming. Relational databases, windows programming (threading, locking, performance counters) and the design of server API’s.

Current area of expertise: Software development processes, Business software, API’s,  SCRUM, C# .Net, Cloud (Azure), CI/CD, game development.

Personal characteristics:

  • leads the way
  • user/people centered
  • tackles challenges
  • exploratory issue solving
  • strongly in overview and broad lines
  • dissects situations and separates content from politics / opinion

Projects I’m interested in: software development

Looking for: software development in a team context, connection with current knowledge and experience, challenging in terms of content (by depth, not by quantity).

Mother tongue Dutch. Has English speaking, reading and writing capabilities to function well in software engineering teams.

I have another business, it is GameFeelings and it is about software/product development in computer/console gaming.

One day I hope to do development in both area’s at the same time. I think doing development work in both game industry and business software will complement each other.
