Hi, my name is Monica. I’m an American software engineer and former engineering manager living and working in Berlin, Germany.

I started coding before the age of ten, and haven’t stopped since. In my 10+ year technical career (not including coding as a kid 😉), I have worked in a wide range of domains such as cloud services, natural language processing, e-learning, and fintech.

My roles have ranged from individual contributor to technical lead and manager. Today, I build my own products full-time.

Before that, I was leading a distributed team of 15+ frontend engineers at SumUp, a German fintech company I’ve worked at as it grew from 80 to more than 1,500 people over the course of 5 years.

My main focus is Affilimate, which provides a unified dashboard and content analytics for affiliates.

I also write a weekly newsletter at Blogging for Devs which teaches developers about blogging and SEO.

In my spare time, I write about travel and photography on Not a Nomad Blog, which has been read by over one million travelers and expats.

Find me online @monicalent.
