Full-stack JavaScript developer


TL;DR

Nicolas Funke - Full-stack javascript developer (React, Node) - Remote only


I welcome you, dear visitor, into this bare but nevertheless interesting page, which is a personnal tribute to the HTML of my youth.

Here you won't find any Google Fonts or jQuery. Even less of NodeJs, PHP or Jekyll. This page is the quintessence of the Internet : an HTML page just as we like.

And yes, this website is a troll to all of the templates I have used in my life

Who is he?

My name is Nicolas Funke, French-German-Basque (with some love for delicious pilsners), born developer, during the unforgetable year of 1987 : World population is estimated to have reached five billion people, President Ronald Reagan challenges Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall. The Golden Gate Bridge celebrate its 50 years. And if you are into wine you should know that 1987 is a pretty average and uninteresting year.

Born in Biarritz, I moved quite a lot during and after my studies (you can see the timeline on my LinkedIn profile), to finally settle in... San Francisco in 2013! The city of the gold rush where the Beat Generation was born. Known for her famous Alcatraz prison who hosted Al Capone and Frank Morris and more recently for the insanely expensive rent prices. I'm also fond of music and a producer/DJ speaking French, German, Spanish and English fluently.

What can he do?

In my life as a freelance developer, I mostly work with almost everything that relates to Javascript (apparently it's freaking hot nowadays!) and every project that I share my values with:

You should know too that I exclusively work on remote mission, even though I'm not savage enough to refuse ponctual real life (billed) meetings.

Let's work together ?

You can find me through the following links:
