I am an enthusiast software developer with a passion for startups and design. I’m a polyglot programmer with a fondness for the functional paradigm. Beautiful code, cool programming technology, and excellent team spirit are my bread & butter.

  • Software Engineer
    From June 2017 to July 2018
    I found the rare and priceless chance to use Haskell at work and being part of a Product-based company at Channable. There I was part of an outstanding team of Engineers who shared the same high standards and eagerness to learn, providing an environment for thick and fast learning. There I developed an API Gateway in Haskell that processed every single request involved in the tool, allowing Channable to open parts of its API to the public, and worked on a new, highly scalable and optimized Haskell component to replace Apache Spark, responsible to process millions of rules and products every day, where milliseconds make a significant difference.
