I’m Rob Weiss

Engineer | Minimalist | Paramedic


I'm a German electrical engineer and computer scientist with wide-ranging experience in digital signal processing, machine learning, and AI. A sound mathematical background and solid programming skills form the basis for my work. I have worked in fields such as:

  • – Robotics
  • – Medical Engineering
  • – Digital Systems Design
  • – Autonomous Driving

Beside my career as an engineer, I freelance as a software developer and work part-time as a paramedic. I love travelling and cycling. Bikepacking to other countries lets me combine both my passions.
