Career Profile

I am a software engineer with a master degree in Communication Systems from EPFL, specialised in signals, images and interfaces.

I have worked remotely for a startup called OptumSoft based in the Silicon Valley for 2 years. On top of my extensive work in distributed systems design, I have elaborated the strategy to add front-end experience to the backend-based product and brought new team members in this project along the way. This move enabled the company to get in a more suitable shape to launch a product to market.

After having created front-end applications from scratch by using the latest technologies, I am now working with big data to solve problems in traditional industries.

From a personal standpoint I enjoy working with the latest technologies in order to design new products that have the power to revolutionise an industry. I am currently working with front-end technologies but have previously have had no issues with taking on subjects such as distributed systems, programming language design or more recently, chatbots.
