peterI am Peter Voss (aka Peter Pipenbacher). I studied Biology with Biochemistry and Bioinformatics as major at the University of Köln and received my Diplom degree in November 2001.

I am now working as software engineer and freelancer. I have strong background in large scale data processing mainly on UNIX based systems. And I have a strong background in Java, Hibernate, Spring, Eclipse Plug-in Development, Hadoop and Lucene.

In the past I have been working for

  • German Academic Exchange Service, New Delhi, India (1999-2000) – Web site development & database administration
  • ZAIK – Centre for Applied Computer Sciences, Köln, Germany (1999-2002) – Research on distributed protein comparisons, creator of XMLIO, contributor at GHMM
  • Deutsche Post World Net, Bonn, Germany (2002-2007) – Architect and developer of distributed production system to process more than 1 billion letters per year
  • Williams Lea, Bonn, Germany (2007) – Principal developer of JEE backed Eclipse RCP front end
  • Krugle, Inc., Menlo Park, CA, USA (11/2006 – 11/2008) – Back end search engine developer & consultant, developer of Krugle Eclipse Plug-in
  • EMI Music, San Francisco, CA, USA (03/2009 – 11/2009) – Consultant, cloud computing BI platform
  • Datameer, San Mateo, CA, USA (11/2009 – present) – CTO & lead architect, BI platform

I believe in Agile and Test Driven Development. After many years of C++ development, Java has become my passion a couple of years ago. It’s amazing at what speed Java and all surrounding tools and frameworks are evolving.

I am also co-founder of Horizont Entertainment and I proved that software engineering can be a lot of fun since my cousin Mike Voss and me developed some freeware games for your leisure time (check out our most recent game Vyrox).
