Tom Bartel

Hi everyone!

My name is Tom Bartel. I am a computer scientist and software developer by training. My favourite languages are JavaScript and Lisp, even though I have never written any Lisp professionally. I work in Düsseldorf, Germany with trivago, where I started as a developer and then became an engineering manager at some point.

I have also watched and mentored others as they went through the transition from engineering to management. I am currently putting my experiences down as a guide: tombartel.me/dev-to-manager/
I am also very interested in everything related to tech recruiting.

If you would like to get in touch, I'm always open!
