SOFTWARE ENGINEER

ABOUT ME

Brief description

27-year-old software enthusiast, currently living and working in Stockholm, Sweden. I am interested mainly (but definitely not only) in Java and related stuff. My code runs mostly on the server side but I'm not afraid of doing some magic on front-end. Always eager to pick up unknown tasks and learn something new.

Other interests

In my freetime I really enjoy reading tech blog articles and tutorials. I truly am a fan of Scandinavian crime novels and movies. I hit the gym occasionally and play the guitar regularly.

    Elementary school - My first programming experiment

    The Logo programming language was the first language in which I wrote small programs at the age of 8. Later, at the age of 12 I was taught basic programming algorithms and how to implement them in Pascal language. Our teacher also showed us basic Unix commands. This was the time I decided that I want to be a software engineer.

    Moved to Stockholm to empower iZettle

    An offer to be a backend developer at one of the world's fastest growing fintech startup was absolutely enough for me to relocate to Sweden without hesitation. Now I am part of a cross-functional agile team responsible for providing capital to iZettle's merchants as smoothly as possible.
