I’m a developer working passionately with designing everything between software and hardware. Every day I try to learn new things and I’m never afraid to explore new technologies. I love the phrases "Can we do better?" and "Why are we doing it this way?". My goal is to work with the best people in an attractive environment where I am allowed to learn and develop my interests. An ideal workplace is one with the employees in focus - having the equipment needed to progress and the possibility to be friends with those that you work with every day.
