  1. Senior Software Engineer at PrimerLearning

    UnityC#BashSelf-directedAutonomous workingInitiative

    Youtube channel Primer Learning needed some help adapting Unity Game Engine for video production. Together we investigated the main issues, then designed and developed a set of tools that would provide solutions for each one of the sharp edges.

    We ended up with a system allows to programatically define a sequence of events, as it was integrated with Unity Timeline so we could preview the video as we were producing it, scrubbing back and forward freely.

  2. Senior Software Engineer at Heydoc

    TypescriptReactAWSUXAccessibilityMentoringLeadershipCypressJestBitbucketMongoDBDatadogSlack bot

    Worked on the development and maintenance of a SaaS product for clinics and doctors to communicate with patients and track their data. There was an emphasis on automation and displaying only the most relevant information at any given moment.

    I found myself without a manager to report to shortly after joining, which led me to pull my sleeves and find ways to help the company as part of my daily job.

    Saw the need and took the leadership of the development along the transformation from a single unit to a handful of teams, facilitated most cross-team technical meetings, mentored junior developers and created my own initiative - a Slack bot - to assist other departments to complete their tasks.

    I mentored the team in specific technologies such as ESLint and Typescript in order to improve code quality and product stability.

    Led the work side by side with the Product and Design teams to define and implement a unified user interface with a consistent Design Language, with particular attention to making it accessible to people with disabilities. Leading every step from brainstorming, planning, decision making, prototyping, the actual implementation of a UI Component Library and knowledge sharing and mentoring to the rest of the company about its usage and benefits. This new approach helped reduce the code by 50% and resulted in a more understandable codebase.

    We created an outstanding team of great individuals with the most efficient dynamic I've seen so far.

  3. Lead Frontend Developer at Hack&Craft

    TypescriptAngular 7-11ReactBashC#F#SQLDockerKubernetesAzureDevOpsGithubGithub ActionsMentoring

    Development of multiple projects of between 3 and 12 months for big European brands like AkzoNobel and Schneider Electric. Most of the time wearing the Frontend Lead hat while sometimes being the only active developer for the project.

    My responsibilities included estimating and ensuring the project was delivered successfully in the agreed time, implementing and maintaining internal tools of the company, running interviews, onboarding and mentoring other engineers and prototyping new business opportunities.

    For example the Specification builder, which is a tool to compose specification documents, the available options and content of the document defined by the client via an Excel spreadsheet which included rules to avoid the user selecting conflicting options. This communication protocol was designed by me to make it easier for the client to customize their tool.

    I shaped, designed and implemented internal tools and packages to be reused across our projects:

    • .NET Core package to contain recurrent utilities like authentication and database access
    • UI Components Library in AngularJS, Angular 2+ and React
    • Reusable CI configuration to compile our projects using Github Actions
    • A deployment adaptable to all our projects that created Docker containers to be deployed into several Kubernetes clusters built in Bash

    I'd particularly highlight the last one for two reasons: first, before that point, each project had its custom deployment system and that was getting increasingly complex to maintain. And second, I knew nothing about Kubernetes when I started this work and after a few weeks, I created a customizable deployment system that guaranteed no downtime even when the application was updated several times a day.
