Hello there, I'm Kat! I'm a backend engineer with about 5 years of experience in industry. I'm currently at N26, working on authentication and distributed applications. I've worked extensively with microservice architectures, relational and non-relational databases, synchronous and asynchronous messaging patterns. I've also first-handedly experienced the initial fears and doubts of just entering into the workforce, and can certainly help new engineers navigate their way into being more confident and productive. When I'm not at work, you can find me either at the mixed martial arts gym, working on my Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, or playing guitar and piano, cooking, or riding my bike!
