My education and experience

My name is Roland Grießer and I’m a software engineer based in Fresach, Austria. I’ve been passionate about creating awesome software and learning about new technologies since my first internship as a developer in 2007, and I’ve gained experience in a lot of different areas since then.

I attended a high school with a focus on network engineering where I learned a lot of the basics about network stacks, web development and computer engineering. I was fascinated about being able to create my own software and wanted to improve my coding skills, so I started a part-time job as a Junior Software Developer at TPA Group.

After I graduated from high school, I switched to a full-time position at the same company and obtained a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences. Both degrees were organised as part-time programs, which allowed me to continue working full-time and finishing studies at the same time.

As I’ve always been interested in learning about other cultures and countries, I decided to write my Master Thesis in Barcelona, Spain. During this time, I was still working for TPA, and it was the first time I’ve been working remotely for a company. I really liked the freedom and that’s when I decided to found my own company, offering software development and IT consulting. The following four years I’ve been working from places all over the world, offering my services as a freelancer for different companies.

In June 2018, I’ve joined the startup Bitmovin, where I’m currently working as a full-stack engineer on their video analytics product. On the side, I’m still working as a freelancer for different customers. Check out the portfolio page to find out more about some of the projects I’ve been working on in the past.
