Hi, I’m Tilo 👋

I’m an Engineering Manager at SoundHound. I enjoy building web products.

When I build something new, I usually learn something in the process.

This website is a way for me to chronicle these lessons and ideas. Most of my articles are around solutions to problems that we face when building great web products.

Products that I’ve built

  • 🏝️ Visabug: A web application that aggregates information about tourist visas, travel advisories, and country statistics. Each day, Visabug collects over 1M+ data points on 230+ countries and 1,200+ cities around the world to help make travel planning easier.
  • 🔮 Abra: A web application that helps product managers plan better.
  • 🖌️ Pure: A minimalist CSS Framework with 20,000+ stars on GitHub.
  • 👩‍💻 Remote Job Lists: An open source remote jobs site.
  • Bedrock: An open source web application framework with built-in user authentication. Not working on this anymore, but remnants of it are present in the current web applications that I have built.

You can find all of my articles here. I also cross-post them on Medium.

Talks and presentations


I’m currently not on the lookout for new opportunities, but if you are trying to try to get a hold of me, here’s my ideal workplace:

  • Working with smart people on impactful products
  • I prefer working on products instead of platforms
  • I enjoy ownership and responsibility
  • I like having opportunities to learn new things
  • Modern technology stack
  • A company with a strong vision that treats its employees and its customers well
  • The flexibility to work remotely sometimes

Here’s my resume, my LinkedIn Profile, and my GitHub Repositories.
