Martin Wagner

Student & Freelancer

Hi, I'm Martin, a student from Germany with interests in programming, open source and politics. I love building stuff and playing around with new technology. On rare occasions, I feel the urge to write on my blog.

Feel free to look at my work and let me know if you have any questions or ideas for new projects.


I co-founded codelayer where I currently work on customer projects and our own product: likvi, the all-in-one tool for freelancers.

During 2017 and 2019 I was an intern at Unified Inbox where I helped to extend the Unification Engine by connecting messaging services and IoT platforms.

In 2015 and 2016 I worked for Next INT, a German web development agency, as backend developer and ops person. During the time I mainly developed with the Laravel PHP framework and managed big parts of their hosting infrastructure.

Beside of this, I have worked as freelancer and intern with multiple companies inside and outside of Germany.


My primary skill set revolves around web development, especially backend development in PHP and node. I also have experience in Linux administration, shell scripting and working with modern CI / CD workflows.


As a humorous response to xkcd #1168 I created a service that generates the correct commands to extract a given file archive. Extract it! was my first project to reach the Hacker News top ten.

Between 2014 and 2016 I operated a chat bot that provided me and fellow students with information about timetable changes. During its lifetime the bot has sent over half a million messages.
