Welcome to my Site
Why you should choose me, Martin Obert, to work for you?
From Communication Hardware to Software
I made a Bachelor in Computer and Communication at the Deutsche Telekom in 1988. From that time I worked, building large scale Communication systems, moving into Networks by 1990. In 1995, I moved to Augsburg, starting my Master in Information Technology while working for the Siemens Corporation.
From large Corporations to StartUp
During my time at Siemens, I learned so much, that I had to move out and explore new ventures. In 2003 I moved to Orlando, Florida, setting up a cross border online shop, selling over 50,000 items from USA to Europe in just 4 years. Companies, like UPS or Fedex were interested in my 22,000 category duty and tax calculator, which I sold to a company in England by 2008.
From Germany to America
In 2010 I worked as a Software developer back in my home town in the Black Forest in Germany to help a friend get his business moving faster. However, after 4 years I developed an App to connect people, you do not know, asking for help or to manage a garage sale. I funded a StartUp in Las Vegas, Nevada to get this App of the ground…I failed.
From Fun (West) to Fun (East)
In 2018 I contracted for a Magento lead developer position at Diamond Resorts Headquarters In Las Vegas. The goal was to improve and add new functionality to the existing Ticket sales site by enhancing and building new Magento modules. After 6 month, I got hired for a full time position from Diamond Resorts in which I still am today.
After moving to the East coast, to the second Diamond Resorts Headquarter in Orlando, Florida, I evolved into our main Drupal Developer, managing a team to expand our Diamond Resorts main website. Enabling Bootstrap as well as updating to the latest Drupal version are the main tasks ahead for 2021.
