My name is Jeremy Soumokil and I work as freelance Java developer. I enjoy writing self-describing code that lends itself to be extended and is easily tested. This just leads to qualitative and reliable software. With a strong background on architectural principles and hands-on Java delivery experience, I believe I know to address the right problems and apply the right technologies.My professional career started as part-time developer on secondment basis during my studies. After receiving a Master’s degree on Computer Science with specialization on Technical Artificial Intelligence and a publication on AAMAS, I joined a technology consulting firm as software developer to learn about the market and the needs of the industry. I took the opportunity to achieve VMWare Spring and Oracle Java development certifications and further developed my skills in heathcare, utilities and telecommunications. My strengths are in software architecture and programming design, networks and communication protocols, exposure to dynamics in organisations, and understanding the stages of the software development lifecycle and their needs. I continued doing the things that I learned and like, and eventually started my own company.

With ApiRapi, I aim to be recognized as that knowledgeable team player who you safely trust that complex issue to and who can safely bring those feature all the way to production. The name was conceived as a concatenation of the acronym API, that describes how applications interact with eachother, and the word Rapid, with the last letter ‘under construction’. On the other hand, the name also symbolizes the passion and reliability in my work by its Indonesian translation, “orderly fire”. And finally, ApiRapi is also an imaginary Dutch compound word that brings to mind a monkey that picks up things. It’s so worth it to keep smiling because life is a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.



Consciously or not, we challenge ourselves to find the balance between different things or aspects we care about. One such example is time and quality. Businesses ideally want to receive the products yesterday and preferably have them last for a lifetime. As a T-shaped professional, I hope to bring that balance with a broad set of services around the software development lifecycle in order to “deliver it for tomorrow”.

Training & Coaching

Increasing your knowledge and skillset is a driver for efficiency as well as motivation. Teaching can be explicit like a training session, but also just by leading by example.

Continuous Delivery

Taking the effort and invest in delivery automation will result in faster lead times, more predictable releases and more satisfaction for developers and stakeholders.

Web Security

Design to minimize the attack vectors of potential threats, such as spoofing, authenticity, tampering, integrity, repudiation, information disclosure, denial of service, elevation of privilege

Java & Web-development

Hands-on development is what I love! I have experience with Java, Spring, OSGi, Docker, Kubernetes, webservices, databases, messaging, networking, security, testing, monitoring, scripting, …

Networks & Virtualization

Containerization and orchestration technologies have standardized the way to describe infrastructure, networks and deployment. This empowers developers and paves the way for more automation!

Technical Writing

Agile thinking removed focus on documentation. Yet, technical designs and formal documentation have an important to play in knowledge transfer both internally as cross-domain

Performance testing

Multithreaded test automation is instrumental to baseline against non-functional requirements. Analysis of test results provide indicators on performance, throughput and stability.

Telecommunications industry

Extensive exposure to service monitoring and assurance domain on data, video and telephony products and the IT infrastructure in OSS, BSS and network domain.
