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. I am mobile and happy to relocate.

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.

Experience

Full–stack programming, later, team building for a SaaS startup to drive sales for small to medium e–commerce shops such as Shopify or WooCommerce.

TimeCamp – Sept 2014 – Oct 2018 – https://www.timecamp.com/

I scaled the company SaaS wise and technology–wise from 50 paying companies to over 2000 in 4 years. I took major part in team assembly, training and nurturing. At peak, I was managing 2 SCRUM teams of 6 people each. TimeCamp went through major reorganization due to my input. The company is going to IPO in 2019. Tech: PHP, CodeIgniter, MySQL, Angular 1, nginx, docker and others

HeySpace – R&D project in TimeCamp, https://hey.space/

TimeCamp 3 – failed rewrite of TimeCamp to highly scalable architecture

The project failed because of constant requirement changes, inflated scalability requirements and lack of proper project management. I learned on what not to do when rewriting large codebases. The project also showed me how poor management may lead to never–ending development and “CV–building”. Tech: NoSQL, Couchbase, Sync Gateway, PouchDb, Blip, PHP, docker–swarm
