Software Developer


Look who's found their way on my website! Welcome to a truly odd world!

I'm mainly a developer for a Zalando company called "Tradebyte" in Ansbach, Germany. I am Kai Klostermann and work primarily on the web front end. Currently, SSR frameworks like Gatsby and Next.js keep me busy. Generally, I'm profound in Design Systems and Web-Performance. I'm trying to learn Rust and WASM. I joined tech in 2010, only to find my profession as a software developer three years later.

When I'm not writing code, I enable people! I am getting more and more into DevRel, speaking, writing, and teaching - for my employer, but also LinkedIn Learning.

I organize the WebDevBBQ in Stuttgart together with David Lorenz. It's a community of web-people gathering once in a while to present and discuss the hottest topics. Find out more on our meetup.com page.

Besides letting arrows fly, I love mechanical keyboards and chess. I cycle a lot and dislike car-centric-infrastructure and -culture.

Reach out to me anytime and keep your fingers crossed that my four besties (πŸ‘©πŸ§’πŸ‘ΆπŸΆ) do not occupy me. 😸
