Hi, my name is Jan and I’m here to help you with your next WordPress project! I’m originally from Germany and I’ve been passionate about web development for the past 15 years. I’m happy to bring my expertise to every new task and I love technical challenges that offer opportunities for creativity and growth.
Clients value my professional training as a graphic designer, so they trust me with creative freedom when it comes to bringing their screen designs to life. Moreover, I’m currently pursuing an MBA at WU Vienna and I feel comfortable in a professional corporate/agency environment that demands reliability and accountability. In fact, most of my projects stem from long-term relationships with design agencies and mid-sized companies whose in-house teams I support when need for an expert in fast, reliable and user-friendly WordPress solutions arises.

These are my core strengths:

  • Developing WordPress themes from scratch with advanced features and custom functionality
  • Developing custom plugins or customizing existing plugins to fit your needs
  • Converting screendesigns to user-friendly and responsive WordPress themes
  • Integrating APIs/Payment Gateways with your WordPress site
  • Maintenance, Speed Optimization & Migration tasks

Here are some recent examples of my work:


I was provided with a PSD screendesign for desktop devices. In close collaboration with the client I implemented fluid interactive animations and support for mobile devices.


International Commission of Jurists

Since 1952 the ICJ has performed a unique and prominent role as an NGO defending human rights and the rule of law worldwide. I updated their existing site to support caching, SSL, advanced search, multi-language (EN/ES/FR/RU/AR) and refreshed the design to be more modern and support mobile devices, all while maintaining backwards compatibility with an archive of over 6000 posts, pages and custom post types.

For comparison, have a look at the old version.

PLAE Scoreboard

Integrated the client’s CRM platform with WordPress through custom API and plugin development. Thanks to the developed solution the client can manage the status of their projects via their CRM as usual, while the end customer receives updates of the project status via email and text message. WordPress serves as the web frontend inbetween that receives data from the CRM and relays information to the customer. Due to the complexity I provided an extensive documentation to the client.

Seward & Kissel LLP

Seward & Kissel, founded in 1890, is a leading U.S. law firm with offices in New York City and Washington, D.C. The project’s goal was to display the firms 165 lawyers, 38 practices and more than a thousand publications and news articles while being attractive and easy to navigate on all devices. Since many elements of the design are re-used I implemented the theme using Timber which sped up development and made the design more consistent. Other essential plugins used were ACF, SearchWP and FacetWP.


PSD screendesign provided by client. Implemented responsive layout, voting widget, SearchWP and FacetWP filter by topic facet.

Further work:

Jan did an absolutely incredible job migrating ministryjobs.com from one WP theme to Jobify. His knowledge and expertise on every bug that needed fixed was at an extremely high level. He went above and beyond our initial ask as we found different tasks that needed completed along the way by figuring out a way to solve every single one of those tasks in a very timely manner. I will be using Jan for any future projects that may come up and would highly recommend him to anyone with a Wordpress project.

Jan is outstanding. He is a real experienced professional. The quality of his work is top-notch. I enjoyed his work process and working with him. He worked on a WordPress project with Advanced Custom Fields and detailed CSS and he understood exactly what I was looking for intuitively. He completed the project very fast and perfectly. I learned by working with him and appreciate his skills, knowledge, and communication style. I recommend his work highly and will work with him again.

Jan is an absolutely first-class developer. Can't recommend him highly enough. This was a complex project with a lot of moving parts, and his ability to ask the right questions, and then jump right in and start building a high-quality product was immensely helpful. Feedback was smooth and simple, and his suggestions were on-point and greatly improved the end result.
