Welcome to my Site
Why you should choose me, Martin Obert, to work for you?
From Communication Hardware to Software
I made an “Ausbildung” (Similar as 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, making my “Master” in Information Technology, at that time called “EDV Kaufmann” while working as an intern for the Siemens Nixdorf 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 our Marketing Division to excel in selling Deals we were able to exceed 2020 and 2021 so far with our Social Network Marketing strategy.
However, in beginning of 2021, I moved back to Las Vegas once again, still working for Diamond Resorts. Mid 2021, Diamond Resorts was acquired by Hilton Grand Vacations. In November of 2022 my role was upgraded to Senior Lead Developer for .NET Members service.
After working as a Senior Lead Developer, I am now traveling full time across the world with stops in Barcelona, Dubai, Bangkok, Kaula Lumpur, Singapur, Tokyo and Sydney. Many other stops will be in between with no special route planned ahead. I might stay weeks or month in the Philippines or in New Zealand. I will enjoy life and grab it as we only have this one life to live.
