Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Simon and I’m a Software Engineer at Spotify. Currently I’m living in Stockholm, Sweden, but I grew up on a small farm in Austria. On my blog, I mostly talk about Android, coding, tech & more.

Professional life

March 2021 - present
In February of 2021, I moved to Stockholm to start a new adventure at Spotify. I'm part of the performance squad and we mostly work on things related to the performance of Spotify's mobile apps.
August 2017 - February 2021
Right after leaving high school, I interned at adidas / Runtastic. After completing my internship (and a short break to finish my civil service), I joined full time as an Android Platform Engineer. I was part of the Core Services team, where I worked mostly on the build system, CI and core libraries for all the Android apps at adidas / Runtastic.


September 2017 - June 2020
After graduating from high school, I enrolled at the University of Applied Sciences in Hagenberg to get my Bachelor's degree in Software Engineering. I pursued this degree while working full time at adidas / Runtastic and graduated in June of 2020.
September 2012 - June 2017
I started my formal Computer Science education at the higher technical college (a type of Austrian high school) in Leonding. I graduated from this school in June 2017 with my Matura.
