Michael Schneider

I'm a German software developer working in San Francisco at Pocket.

I'm mostly interested in programming languages, development for the Mac or iOS and web. I also love to make all kinds of Sport activities or go for a hike.


At Pocket I'm mainly responsible for development of the popular “save for later” iOS and Mac app.

While working on Pocket for iOS and Pocket for Mac, I also worked on the Pocket Chrome App, Pocket Browser Extensions as well as contributed code to the Mozilla Firefox browser for the native Pocket Firefox integration.


Since January 2013 I have a degree in business informatics from the Hochschule Ulm, University of Applied Science.

In 2012, I worked as an intern for Cultured Code on the delightful task manager Things Mac 2.0.

Besides study, I wrote Read Later (formally ReadNow) the first Pocket and Instapaper client for the Mac as well as worked from 2009 to 2010 for TRANSPOREON as a web developer.

Before study I did a professional education as a industrial manager by Liebherr Werk Biberach GmbH. After my professional education I worked there as a software engineer.


Occasionally I write something over at Medium.
