Summary

Being a self-taught passionate programmer, during the recent years I have developed an extreme interest into single page apps. Lately, I've been experimenting with Golang as well.

During my professional career as a programmer, I had to deal with complex databases (including setting up), writing backend APIs and frontend for several websites.

Work experiences

Tutti.ch, Frontend Engineer

2017 July
I am now working full time for Tutti.ch as a frontend engineer. The website is one of the most visited websites in Switzerland with more than 15 millions monthly page views. During my employment I was responsible from the followings:
  • Implemented the server side rendering logic.
  • Pushed hard for unit-tests. Increased test coverage from 0% to 60%.
  • Migrated the remaining legacy code to React.
  • Rewrote the whole routing of the frontend (migrate from React Router v2 to v4)

Corpax was a spinoff funded by RegioPress. It was a single page team collaboration and communication (similar to Slack/Trello). Failed after 2 years. During that time:
  • I helped to prepare the business plan which in return allowed us to get a
    CHF 300'000 grant from CTI.

  • Developed the whole application using the following technologies:
    • ES6 (Vue.js, Webpack, Babel, Karma, Jasmine)
    • Node.js

    • AWS (EC2, RDS, S3)
  • Also collaborated closely with SUPSI using an agile development methodology in a team of 5 people, to build a chat bot.

Using C#, me and another developer, developed this tool which is an online platform for shopping from the closest grocery stores in your nearby.
