I'm Lukas Martinelli, a software engineer working on maps and infrastructure.
I am very passionate about maps, the web and especially open source. I love trying out new technologies and programming languages and have acquired a large and broad skill set across the entire software stack.
My expertise lies applying these skills to GIS to create maps and enable geospatial business intelligence - all of this in distributed systems so it can scale with ever growing GIS data.
My projects and past work experience are the best proof of what I work on and am capable of! I still have an older list with my technical skills
Check out my Open Source projects.
I studied Computer Science at the Hochschule für Technik Rapperswil and finished with an A grade.
I completed my apprenticeship at Online Consultingwith the VET Diploma in Information Technology (with focus on application development). My diploma thesis was an evaluation and proof-of-concept of a web application that can be used offline and online with the help of HTML5 file storage.
I work on the infrastructure/rendering pipeline side of our mapping stack helping Mapbox to provide the best-looking and most-usable maps for our customers. I find new ways to cope with ever growing OpenStreetMap data and create open source tools for developers.
Software Engineer and DevOps for Devicetools. We built a Kubernetes based microservice platform using Golang.
I worked 20% part time as Campus Ambassador for Swisscom Human Resources connecting students with Swisscom as an innovative employer. In addition I worked on cloud products and helped building a social media dashboard with Python integrating Twitter, Facebook and Google+.
I had the chance to spend my military service in the Swiss Cyber Network Operations division together with highly skilled people. Over the course of four months I was able to work with Python, Go, Big Data and the Cloud to solve security problems.
I was able to experience four wonderful and educational years as software engineer trainee working at Online Consulting. Due to the high personal responsibility given, I was able to work on many projects and make substantial progress as a developer.
As part of a SCRUM team I helped develop parts of the PIM platform Smartsite EPM and created a concept how to create offline web applications for service technicians.
I was also part of the core team to develop and work with a custom solution for generating automated product catalogs with Adobe Indesign. I still work on a contract basis with Online Consulting to maintain automated print solutions.
