Who am I?

About me

My name is Jasper Schulte. I’m a developer from Amsterdam. I’ve lived in several parts of the world and love to travel to all the other parts. In my free time my greatest passion is skydiving, and I try to travel as often as I can to the most exotic places to find a plane to jump from. Back at home I love my city of Amsterdam, and enjoy every minute of living there.

And I love coding…

Awesome Amsterdam

In 2005, with two very good friends, I founded my own company, Awesome Amsterdam. It started out as sort of a joke, but soon enough it proved much more successful than we ever hoped. In the past 10 years Awesome Amsterdam grew considerably in size and built a portfolio and client list I’m very proud of.

But this spring I made a decision: While the company was doing great, and I was still enjoying it on a personal level, I decided I was ready for a change and left the company. To fly solo for a while.

Ready for new adventures.

What am I good at?


My main expertise lies in building enterprise level Single Page Applications (SPA’s). I have taken the lead in building several big SPA’s using either AngularJS (1/2) or ReactJS. I strongly believe in these framework’s possibilities for great separation of concerns, development speed, dynamic interfaces and scalability. I do think, however, that the use of Angular or React does not guarantee a proper built, high performant, modular, highly maintainable platform. That takes years of experience in any framework. I have that experience.

And the rest

But I also have notable experience in most other relevant technologies / languages / services. e.g. es6, redux, polymer, webpack, html5, css3, sass, scss, jade, node, php, java, building restful api’s, git, grunt, jenkins, jira, mysql, postgres, redis, mongo, firebase, aws, heroku. With other words, except for creating visual designs, I have experience with building platforms from the ground up.

Building businesses

I will help you on conceptual and strategic level with your business or product. For years, with my company, we have built products of our own or helped other business build theirs. This means working on conceptual and strategic level: what are we going to build, for whom are we building it, what will be the businessmodel, what would be the best strategic course for maximum effect?

Code quality

I write high quality, readable, very modular, maintainable code. Having worked on dozens of long running platforms, I have learnt the hard way how important code quality is. Coming back to code months later, smartass code with 3 statements in one line will not help you. You should be able to read your code like a good story.

About working with me

  • Team over product

    I am always searching for the best team to work with, and less for a great product / idea to work on. I believe a great product can be driven into the ground by a mediocre team, but an initially mediocre idea can become a very successful product if you put a great team on it.

  • On freelance basis

    I work on freelance basis. At this point in my life I am not interested in an employment contract.

  • Flexibility

    If the need arises for temporary extra dedication this is possible. I know like no other how unpredictable development paths can be.

  • Amsterdam or remote

    I believe, nothing beats working on the same project shoulder to shoulder. But I’ve also had great experiences in working remote. If you manage to lay down a few solid ground rules this can certainly work very well too.

  • Fee

    I work with a standard fee. For startups I’m always willing to charge a special ‘startup’ fee. I log with 5 minute precision and all hours are clearly annotated for maximum transparency.

Who have I worked for?

It is rare to find people who can combine dedication to meet the customer’s needs with a relentless drive to improve the way we work; with this in mind I am grateful that I had the opportunity to work with Jasper. Jasper is one of the most enthusiastic and energetic people I know. He approaches any task with great energy, and infuses everyone with it. Jasper is an amazing and passionate advocate for great user experience, with excellent technical and practical knowledge. He can get things done, both through his own personal drive and by getting the best out of others. He he is capable of solving complex problems and always pushed to do things better. He is creative, driven, and highly capable.

We had a long delay to find a suitable candidate to do UI development for our product but as we engaged Jasper and started seeing his caliber, customer focus drive, wealth of experience with UI designs & technologies – within two weeks of working with him I realized that we have landed on an ideal person and will make up for lost time on our project from hiring delay and we certainly did!!! Jasper first understood business needs, questioned why certain things are designed certain way, brought in his wealth of experiences and helped re-design, delivered UI architecture and functional code to us on this project. I am in US and worked with Jasper remotely. With Jasper’s communication skill, dedication to project, self-drive to deliver excellence in what he takes on, understanding of priorities of items/issues – it certainly was a great pleasure to work with him and remote was not an issue at all.
