👋 Pleased to meet you, I’m The Barefoot Tech Lead. My name is Constantijn, but in a professional context there seem to be more people that know I don’t like to wear shoes than my name, so I’m running with it.
Right now you’ll fine me building a bank @ Monzo, tech leading (surprise, surprise). As this blog will demonstrate, my interests may stray far and wide, but at the end of the day I’m interested in what makes people tick/effective, the art of building high quality systems (and as a result products) and how to run the most effective product squad I can. Technically speaking, I have a soft spot for Apache Kafka and distributed systems, with my hardware background peaking through the cracks every once in a while.
Feel free to reach out, email preferred.
