Work Experience

Even though I started my career as a full stack developer, over the years I gradually moved to a full time frontend development role. The combination of design, interactivity, and raw user feedback are aspects of the job that always fascinated me. My plan for the future is to continuously expand my knowledge in this part of the development spectrum, and to become an active open source contributor.

Below is a list of the companies with whom I’m working, or worked with in the past, and a succinct description of the roles in which I have partaken.

Technologies

After static HTML and CSS templates, custom WordPress plugins and themes, REST APIs written on top of Laravel (PHP) and Express (Node.js), in the last two years I moved my focus solely on SPA (single page application) frontend development. Below is a list of technologies which I used in production projects in the recent past.

  • React — reactjs.org

    With over two years of continuos development experience, from small promotional websites to big dashboards with hundreds of different components, React is my technology of choice for almost any kind of frontend development project.

  • Next.js — nextjs.org

    As my go-to solution for server-side rendered React applications, I successfully used Next.js in several production projects. Fast, light, and easy to use, it helped me achieve a drastic increase in loading times, while keeping a clean and modular React codebase, with the advantages of a server rendered one.

  • TypeScript — typescriptlang.org

    Even though it’s a recent addition to my toolset, I’m already seeing the benefits of adopting TypeScript in my workflow. Keeping sanity and consistency in a big codebase or team is always a big challenge, and with TypeScript it has become much easier.

  • D3.js — d3js.org

    Using D3.js, I assisted in the development of a fully custom chart visualization library, mainly working on animation and user interactivity, which is currently being adopted by software used by some of the biggest automotive brands in the world.

  • HTML & CSS (SASS)

    From interactive dashboard widgets, to complex landing pages with responsive layouts and fluid animations, I extensively used HTML and CSS on all the projects I worked on over the last several years.
