Timo Laak


Full-stack engineer with a background in Human-Computer Interaction


I'm a seasoned full-stack engineer with a background in Human-Computer Interaction, an eye for detail and a mindset for continuous improvement. I prefer working in cross-functional teams and at companies that understand why diversity, flexibility and remote work matter. I can do anything from tweaking an SVG logo to investigating a failing k8s deployment. I want to be part of creating something big and perhaps making the world a little bit better place. Hit me up if you have something interesting to offer!

Senior Full-stack Engineer


Dec 2022 - Present (1 year 7 months)

Creating the best home loan product on the market with a lean cross-functional team. As a senior full-stack engineer, I've been working on both front-end and back-end codebase in a fast-paced startup-like environment. For most of my time, I've been focussing on BAU items - including performance improvements and prod support.

Senior Software Engineer

Aug 2022 - Nov 2022 (3 months)

Front-end development for their unstructured data analysis platform. I left early, as I was hired to do Node.js, but what they actually needed was a front-end growth engineer. My skill set and ways of working are more suitable for long-term product development, so there was a mismatch in the expectations on both sides.

Senior Engineer (Full-stack)


Jan 2022 - Jul 2022 (6 months)

After relocating to Australia, I joined Known who are building SMS based communication services. I was part of a team building their Conversr platform using React. My responsibilities also included starting a UI component library project in close collaboration with the designers. I did also get a small dip in backend development using Go, but majority of my tasks were programming in TypeScript.

Senior Software Engineer


Oct 2020 - Oct 2021 (1 year)

Anaplan's Extensions and Integrations tribe was my professional home for a little bit over a year before I left London and UK behind. My team was responsible for the maintenance and development of DocuSign and Google Sheets integrations.

Senior Software Engineer


Oct 2019 - Jul 2020 (9 months)
