Jacobjob Koster

Java consultant

I am described as a driven, reliable and customer-oriented person. I like to analyse technical problems, wishes and processes in order to arrive at a solution or improvement. I proactively propose possible alternative solutions or improvements, using a broad knowledge of software (development). I have an open attitude, good communication skills, I work accurately and you know what to expect from me.

With over 10 years of work experience in Java environments, I have had various roles, including Java software developer, technical manager of several different applications and technical project manager. I excel at being able to switch between technology and functionality, where I always keep the bigger picture in mind. In my many roles I am used to communicating with Business Analysts, IT managers, CEOs, as well as end users and technical architects. In this I can act as a specialist or as a generalist. In my software development roles I have both backend and front-end experience, with the emphasis on the backend. I am also very well versed in Linux in, for example, Debian, CentOS, RedHat, which means that in a DevOps environment I can coach, guide and ensure operational successes on both fronts.

The assignments I performed varied from building Java Content Management Systems (JBoss / Tomcat), working with scalable multinode technology (Apache Ignite), setting up and managing integration flows (Apache Camel), Oracle databases to managing Liferay / ESB upgrades in different technical environments.
