Portrait of Tobias Baldauf

Hi! I'm Tobias Baldauf, web performance evangelist, #perfmatters engineer at Trivago, dedicated dad, mindful veggy, music lover and curious geek.

I create DevOps tools, image optimization algorithms and speak at conferences. But don't take my word for it:

"Tobias has been leading from the beginning, constantly at the cutting edge of the web performance world. [...] He developed innovative image compression algorithms and optimizations, which have not existed in this form on the market yet. [...] Customers are amazed by his outstanding web performance expert knowledge and are asking to get him involved."
– From laudation by Mike Glöckner (Sr. Manager Service Consulting at Akamai) on Tobias Baldauf receiving the Innovator of the Year award

In 2015, I received Akamai's "Innovator Of The Year" award and in 2017, my team & me received Akamai's "Industry Knowledge And Thought Leadership" award. Stuff I've invented makes sites like Etsy & Alibaba faster today. I love talking about that. Check out my speaker info if you want me to speak.
