Tech Lead Philipp Bammes

One of our Inpsyders lives in Dresden.
I went into WordPress development step by step. It all started with me being a child, where didn't have unlimited access to the computer.

In this article, we want to introduce Philipp Bammes, our Tech Lead. When Philipp joined our agency as a WordPress Engineer in July 2018, we asked him a few questions to get to know him a little better.

This is Philipp Bammes

Philipp is 27 years old and lives in Dresden, Germany.

WordPress developer Philipp Bammes wanted to work at Inpsyde for some time now.

Tell us something about yourself …

Long ago, I liked playing the cello, but recently I didn’t have time for that. Another big hobby of mine is road cycling, but I haven’t done that for some time now, because I try to fulfill my new role as father to complete satisfaction.

Philipp’s way to Syde

Syde recruited me via Stack Overflow. There, a job as a backend developer has been available. Well, I have to commit – working at Syde is something I thought about for quite some time now. But I guess I would have waited a few years until I would have applied myself. Syde is a well-known name in the German WordPress community, you hear about it quite often. I’m impressed by Syde’s spirit, for example, that the agency makes so much open-source software available for the public. And above all, there is this high code quality.

I went into WordPress development step by step. It all started with me being a child, where didn’t have unlimited access to the computer. So, following the motto “All forbidden things get interesting”, I started being curious about this whole internet thing. I wanted to know how things work “behind the scenes”. I already worked with WordPress privately, and after I finished school, I studied media technology. Then I started my traineeship at an agency, where I began to work as a front-end developer after I had my degree. And step by step, I went into backend development.

For me, it’s the first time that I work remotely. I’m excited about all the possibilities coming along with that. Working remotely offers many fantastic ways to combine work, family, and traveling.
