Tobias Pfeiffer, Berlin (Germany) - engineering leader looking for a job!

Heyo, it is me - and I’m looking for a job!

I’m an experienced leader & product-minded engineer deeply interested in collaboratively building useful products. With a background spanning small startups to scaling unicorns, I bring a wealth of experience in Elixir, Ruby, SQL and some JavaScript. I love Open Source, participating in the community and giving talks. My passion for performance optimization and benchmarking led me to create benchee.

In my most recent role as a Senior Staff Engineer @ Remote, I led teams to success by removing obstacles, fostering a culture of collaboration and filling the gaps. Whether managing a product department of 15 or mentoring junior developers, my greatest joy comes from empowering others. I am fascinated by the human side of software development and continually strive for the optimal balance between immediate value delivery and long-term sustainability.

I’m now seeking new opportunities where I can leverage my skills and experience to make a meaningful impact. While I excel in roles like Staff+ Engineer, I’d love to explore opportunities in smaller companies or leadership positions such as CTO, Head of Engineering or Team Lead. Remote and asynchronous work environments are ideal for me, as they allow me to focus on delivering value while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.

I’m considering both full time positions as well as freelancing opportunities either in Berlin or remotely.

And here is a blog post that goes into even more detail - you can skip the “short version” there as it’s essentially what I posted above.


As soon as I saw this post I felt the need to comment and say that Tobias is a superb leader, an amazing engineer, and all around great human being. His career, open source work, numerous popular talks at conferences, and years of community involvement are clear indicators of his technical and social skills. I have the privilege to know him personally, and given the chance I would hire him immediately.

I am serious here, this is not a generic endorsement. This is one of the best hires a tech company could ever make.
