My name is Roemer Bakker. I’m a freelance Software Engineer working in the Amsterdam region. I am currently pursuing a Bachelors Degree in Software Engineering at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, which I’m planning to follow up with a Masters degree in the same field at the University of Amsterdam. Since the first year of my studies, I’ve been working as a freelancer, mostly doing backend web development. Over the years, I’ve managed to gain quite a bit of industry experience and I’ve worked for some notable clients:


As a Software Engineer, I’m proficient in more than just writing code. The role also involves project management, providing advice on technical matters by conducting research, writing documentation and DevOps. Over the years I’ve gained experience in all of these fields. Below is a list of services I’m able to provide for your project.


  • PHP 7 + Laravel ♥
  • Linux (deployment, monitoring and management)
  • Go
  • Java
  • JavaScript
  • Redis / queue workers / asynchronous applications
  • (No-)SQL / Postgres
  • WooCommerce + PrestaShop plugin development


  • Consulting
  • Research
  • Writing Documentation
  • Project Management
  • Fluent in Dutch and English (speaking + writing)

Alongside these core skills I also have experience using essential developer services and tools like Git, Composer, NPM, Docker, Sentry etc.


Life is not all about work of course and in my spare time I like to pursue a fair few hobbies. I have a great passion for cars and motorsport, so I love to geek around motorshows and I closely follow the Formula 1 and WEC championships. I also like to take my Renault Clio RS out for a spirited drive and I’m planning to take it on some track days around my local racetrack Zandvoort. Alongside my love of cars, I really like to travel, especially if I can take my camera along, as I’ve always loved photography (Check out my 500px!).
