Hi. My name is Axel Schüssler. I'm a software engineer, coach and consultant.

I have built enterprise applications, systems software, communication middleware, schedulers, loggers, testing libraries and delivery pipelines. I have had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects across multiple industries, including automotive, insurance and defense.

To me, software engineering is a team effort and as a coach I aim to unleash the potential of the teams I am working with. I do this by focussing on an agile mindset, extremely short feedback loops and appropriate technical practices. I code test-driven. My teams do frequent retrospectives. There is always room for improvement.

I currently learn about distributed systems — I geek out at the intersection of consistency models, causality, and cognition. When I code for fun, I code in Clojure.

I am working at Novatec, a German IT consulting company. Any views expressed here are mine, not those of my employer.

You can contact me on Xing or LinkedIn or simply by Email: axel [at] axels [dot] cloud.
