I’m a passionate software engineer constantly seeking opportunities to enhance my skills and explore cutting-edge technologies. With a solid background as a software developer and a comprehensive engineering education, I possess the technical flexibility and adaptability to excel in any project.

Driven by an insatiable curiosity, I am always eager to delve deeper into the world of software methodologies and stay up-to-date with the latest industry trends. By continuously expanding my knowledge and honing my craft, I ensure that I am well-equipped to deliver optimal solutions and drive innovation within large, collaborative teams.

I thrive in both team environments and remote work settings, seamlessly adapting to diverse work dynamics and fostering effective communication across geographically distributed teams. My ability to collaborate harmoniously with colleagues from different backgrounds allows me to contribute to a positive and productive work culture.

Having established myself as a Senior Scala Developer, I am now seeking opportunities that will not only allow me to leverage my existing expertise but also provide a platform for me to acquire proficiency in Rust programming. I am enthusiastic about exploring the unique features and capabilities of Rust and applying them to solve complex problems.

By combining my Scala proficiency with a growing fluency in Rust, I aim to contribute to projects that span both languages, leveraging the strengths of each to create efficient, scalable, and robust solutions.

Beyond the realm of software engineering, I am an avid Sci-Fi enthusiast. Immersing myself in captivating Sci-Fi literature not only fuels my imagination but also inspires me to think outside the box and envision innovative solutions. In my spare time, I enthusiastically engage in developing personal projects that frequently incorporate the principles of Functional Programming. This allows me to experiment with new ideas, refine my technical skills, and continually push the boundaries of what is possible.

“[…] I also know how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong but to feel strong. To measure yourself at least once. To find yourself at least once in the most ancient of human conditions. Facing the blind deaf stone alone, with nothing to help you but your hands and your own head…” ( ITA)
