Coming from Romania, I am a experienced and passionate engineer with a flair for people leading.
I've entered software development early in my childhood and pursuited it academically in Computer Science & Mathemathics high school and later a BSc in Computer Science.
Later on I moved through companies and business domains learning more and more about engineering and the importance of the formal processes structure around the development pipeline.
Since 2012 I am living in Berlin, Germany.
I thrive in fast paced companies that value the end user experience and are looking to make a change in the status quo.
Curious and ever evolving professional, I enjoy complex challenges and taking responsibility.
I recognize people as being the main asset of a company and value it accordingly. I appreciate well defined process patterns and a subsequent flexibility in approaching them.
As a manager, I see myself as a enabler, a person whose primary driving force is trust and a shared vision.
Focused on enabling people to get the best out of themselves, leading and supporting engineers.
5+ years managing technical teams.
10+ years as a full stack engineer.
Proficient with project and team management methodologies, technical recruiting and mentorship. Engineering manager with a personal approach on team values and vision.
Among my skills that recommend me as a engineering manager, here's a few I consider relevant to my leadership and management style.
Stanford's ML class, taught by Andrew Ng, on Coursera
Specialized in Software engineering and automated systems
Specialized in Software and Mathematics
On Saturday mornings, you'll find me outside the city, cycling the forests and fields together with the cycling club I've founded, Corsa Berlin 🚴
But before riding out, I'll pour a latte, while attempting to make a cool rosetta. Latte art is fun! ☕️
Evenings are reserved for hacking, be it a cool new product idea or a home automation tool. Ocasionally paired with craft beers 🍻 down at Kaschk or Commongroud.
Every few weeks I'm part of volunteer mentorship sessions for people that want to take up programming by themselves.💻👨👩👧👦
