A FFP interview with Stellate Software Engineer Stephan Schneider. Stephan is a Berlin based software engineer with a deep love for backend logic and a living example that attending meetups can help your career progression. He started working for Contentful after being on one of the meetups they hosted and stuck with them for many years, building and maintaining various APIs, including their GraphQL API from scratch. He later toured a few meetups to give back to the community by talking about the lessons learned - design decisions, developer experience and performance on scale - and ended up chatting with the Stellate team on one of those. Now he's an engineer for Stellate, doubling-down on what he loves to do: helping users with their backend APIs.
