Meet the team: Karl, Back-End Developer

Dec 09, by Goalify in General

Karl studied computer science at the University of Klagenfurt, where he also worked as an university assistant. In 2013 he joined Goalify as a senior developer and is the very first employee of the company.

What are your tasks and responsibilities at Goalify? How does your typical day look like?

I am mainly responsible for the server component. This includes the implementation of new features as well as the maintenance of existing infrastructure. Additionally, I developed the adminstraton client and many test and debugging tools that are not visible for the user. In general my day involves a lot of development work (drafting, developing and testing) and a couple of meetings.

What is your favourite feature of Goalify?

My favourite feature is the dashboard, where I can keep track of the achievement and development of my goals over a longer period of time.

On what goals are you currently working on?

At the moment I have three active goals: Riding my bike at least 30km a week, going to the gym at least twice a week and drinking a minimum of 4 glasses of water every day.

Your motivation quote?

It's weird, day by day nothing seems to change, but pretty soon, everything is different. (Bill Watterson, Calvin & Hobbes)
