Michael Borgwardt

I'm currently working as a team lead and software architect for Lexcom. I consider myself lucky to get paid well for work that I actually enjoy. The most interesting parts are:

  • The struggle against human, especially your own fallibility - every bug has a creator
  • The systems can be understood completely - if you have enough stamina and skill, any problem can be solved
  • Communication is important but not an end unto itself
  • The work can never become truly monotonous, because you can automate anything repetitive


My strengths lie mainly in these fields

  • software development in Java
  • development processes, especially the Rational Unified Process
  • code quality assurance
  • performance engineering
  • automated testing
  • (If desired, imagine a long list of the usually buzzword acronyms here)

I am a native speaker of German and know these foreign languages:

  • English - fluent in speaking and writing
  • Japanese - well enough to deal with everyday situations
