Hi, I am Maxim Lapis

I am a programmer and startup consultant.

It's nice to meet you!

About me



Being born in Russia and raised in Germany I am very passionate for different micro- and macro-cultures and their effects. I love all kinds of technology, their challenges and the amazing things they allows us to do.


I excel at challenges where I can be pragmatic, fast and iterate quick on feedback. If I can shorten the feedback cycle by talking to the customer directly, I would absolutely prefer to. I am a generalist, interested in a lot of topics ranging from startups, programming, artificial intelligence, culture, sales psychology and many more topics. My two specialties are programming in Ruby on Rails, as well as automation of sales and internal processes.

"As a freelancer Maxim helped us a lot to automate crucial business and sales processes and played an important role in scaling our early stage business. At the same time, Maxim made sure that we don't lose any current business potential in the process. We really value Maxims direct communication and efficient feedback approach that ultimately resulted in a very fast development of our solution."

Alexander Gigga

Customer Development at lengoo

"I got to know Maxim while he was still working on Fachangebot. We exchange new business ideas and work on minor projects together from time to time. I appreciate his entrepreneural mindset and his can-do attitude a lot. I am sure he would be a great asset to any company or startup."

Michael Emaschow

Founder of Papershift and Codiga

"I've worked with Maxim on several projects. He's very fast in building prototypes to give an early idea of how an actual product could look like. During the projects, he used fast iteration cycles to ensure the project is going into the right direction. He knows what he's doing, it's fun to work with him."
