About me

I started my career 6 years ago as a backend developer. Because the company I worked for was still in early stages of growth, I was soon given the opportunity to expand my work to full-stack, covering frontend, backend, mobile, devops, and cloud on various different projects. I was also able to build and improve processes in the company that helped us grow.

After completing a few projects, I began taking on architecture and devops roles, where I designed solutions and implemented them together with my team.

I then became a project manager and a tech lead, overseeing multiple challenging projects. This experience enhanced my understanding of business aspects of engineering, leadership, and improved my communication. I also learned the importance of health and setting up smart productivity systems.

I then returned to engineering, focusing on full-stack development, advising, mentoring and leading.

On top of engineering, I've recently began working in people management, where I conduct meetings with other engineers, help them with their career growth, and provide feedback.

My latest success was completing my company's academy program, where I served as a technical lead, lecturing and mentoring up-and-coming frontend developers. I've also represented my company as a public speaker.

Throughout my 6-year journey, I've evolved not only as a software engineer but also as a team member, leader, mentor, public speaker, communicator, and a healthier person. I truly believe that my work has a positive impact on other people's lives, as well as mine. And this is why I love my job.
