May I introduce myself?

My name is Julia Elisa Kaltenegger – hence JUELKA.

I’m glad to see that you found my website and I’d love to know who you are!

Perhaps you’d like to get in contact with me?

But back to me for now – I guess that’s what you came to this page for 😉

First of all, no, I’m not a “typical developer”. And no, I don’t have a degree in software engineering or in any other IT related studies. Instead, I have a BSc in International Business and I have worked in various fields, such as (online) marketing, UX/UI design, sales, auditing and I somehow even ended up in Hong Kong where I worked at the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.

In summer 2019 my professional aspirations finally solidified when I decided to join the Web Development Bootcamp from UpLeveled. That was definitely the turning point in both, my professional and personal life. After 3 months of coding all-day / everyday, I graduated and was sent off with my flashy programming certificate in hands with the mission to find a job. But I soon realized that the job I wanted doesn’t exist. Hm… let me rephrase that: It does exist, but it’s called “running my own business”.

So that’s what I did and I founded JUELKA where I’m in charge of all the things I love, like:

  • Project management
  • Customer service
  • Creating new websites
  • Improving existing websites
  • UX/UI design
  • Really anything design-related
  • (Online) marketing
  • …and much more!

Of course, there are still some tasks I don’t love, like (ugh…) bookkeeping. But let’s stay positive!

I’ve always been striving for a career that pushes me to continuously learn new things and develop my problem-solving skills on the job, while enabling me to build things from scratch and let my creativity flow freely. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that I recently discovered my passion for frontend development.

So no, I don’t have a degree in software engineering or an infinite number of years of experience in the IT sector, but what I do have is the ambition to succeed in this field and to deliver great value to my clients, to always over-perform!
