Experience

2019 - Present

Fire Flamingo Dev

Co-founder / Project Manager / Full stack developer

I am a co-founder of Fire Flamingo, where we developed a subscription based cosmetic product. I branched out Fire Flamingo Dev and built a development team as a means of financing the start-up.

As our first project at FFDev, we took over the development, from Atracore, of a custom ERP solution, built on the MEAN stack, for a Belgian client in tourism.

We developed and launched two ecommerce shops of our own, for cosmetics and clothing. The shops were built on OpenCart, but with a custom goods management system to keep the stocks and prices updated in real time on partnering marketplaces.

We also built and launched an online platform for local food delivery services, a website for a local printing house and redesigned the site for an ongoing client.

NTT Data

Team Lead / Front end: HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, Angular / Salesforce

I joined NTT Data as a front end developer and was proposed for the Team Lead role within the first three months on the team.

On my first project I was the only front end developer in a team of six back end developers, refactoring a legacy project for Virgin Media, and I never missed a deadline. Elod Balazs, our PM, received outstanding reviews on my performance from the client’s team.

The second project was an infomercial/marketing tool built with Angular 6, which we built from discovery requirements to finish, for Legal & General UK.

Artsoft-Consult

Back end: PHP, Node.js / Front end: HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, AngularJs, D3.js

Initially I started as a PHP back end developer, but soon I migrated to a front end position as it was a greater need for it on another project.

In my time at Artsoft, I worked on multiple projects as a front end developer, including a pilot project that helped the company to get a new client, which soon became one of their biggest clients.

My responsibilities were to keep in constant contact with the clients for requirements gathering through daily calls and then coordinate with the back end engineers to implement the requirements.

About Me

I was born and raised in a small town called Drobeta Turnu-Severin, located in the south of the country, on the Danube river, at the Serbian border. As a child I spent my summers with my grandparents in a really small village of a bit over 1000 people, outside of Craiova.

At 19, after I finished high school, I moved to Timișoara, in the west of Romania, to pursue a bachelor degree in Mathematics and Informatics at the West University of Timișoara.

At 23, I moved to Cluj-Napoca, in the center of Romania, chasing a dream and I have been living it ever since.
