Roland Chelwing

Fullstack Software Engineer

A curious and dedicated programmer with diverse experience spanning multiple industries.

About

I started programming at the age of seven, creating text-based RPGs with my older brother on an ancient PASCAL computer. Computers and technology have always fascinated me, but it wasn't until many years later that I turned my passion into a profession.

Over the years, I have had the opportunity to work with a diverse range of organizations, including a fintech company, an online casino platform, a security company, a highly innovative startup, and one of the world’s most visited websites.

Currently seeking new opportunities, I am passionate about software development and am eager to bring my expertise to a new team.

Please feel free to contact me on LinkedIn or via email to discuss potential collaborations or job openings.
