Personal summary

I am a 28–year–old professional, with 10 years of programming and tech experience. I am looking for opportunities to solve today’s world problems using modern techniques. I would like to work in a team of strongly focused professionals or build one from scratch. I am particularly interested in designing and implementing reliable and scalable systems using proven and well known technologies. I believe in the approach of using simple blocks to compose a complex system.

Areas of competence

My experience ranges from building basic blocks of SaaS company to operations on C–level in a mid–sized business. My tech skill set covers linux server administration, NoSQL databases, programming in today’s most popular frameworks and team management. I am a big promoter of SaaS model, SCRUM methodology, iterative approach, SOLID, KISS, DRY, YAGNI, divide and conquer and functional programming. I also had multiple opportunities to work with enterprise regulation requirements such as GDPR and others.
