Straight from our Discord announcement, our team's original presentation
I have a Master’s Computer Science, I’ve worked in full stack Java/Spring/General MVC roles all of these more than 10 years, ranging from areas of banking to retail and commerce. I'm not including any of my experience before my studies, which is also extensive. Been working lately as Lead Backend dev for one of the biggest automotive-industry companies in the world for their commerce implementation, I've been doing this work for most of my life, always for top-of-the-range clients, ranging from one of Italy’s main banks to well-known names in luxury fashion, retail, health products and all of them across several countries. In my first projects, I did indeed move from junior to senior dev, and then onto the lead for all the other projects, including maintaining several of them. Have also worked in consultancy for 6 of these years and then moved to automotives directly for my current employer. My main expertise is thus on backend development, architecture and design rather than frontend, but I can assure you a few typescript / react lines are well within my reach
My background is in Law and I tried my hand as a lawyer for 3 years but didn’t like it and moved on to computer development. I started out freelancing and after over 20 years, I am now the CEO of my company and regularly work with junior and senior devs. I believe my greatest skills lie in problem solving, networking, listening and brainstorming movements and choosing people that have the skills needed for shared success of everyone. I’m a bit of a nerd and also an astronomer and I found Scrub’s community to be a great one. I want to create value for the space as a whole and I think everybody will have a profit from this project, but we must succeed in creating some tools for everyone, not only for some certain group. I don’t believe in only asking people to “hold hold hold”, as everyone will have to take some profits but we can build something bigger. I love reading, watching series and outdoor activities like tennis and hiking.
