πŸŽ‰ Welcome,
I am Marius Mischie. Here's a few things about me πŸš€

Who am i πŸ§›β€

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.

MY VALUES πŸ…

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.

On the weekend πŸ„β€

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 πŸš΄β€
But before riding out, I'll pour a latte, while attempting to make a cool rosetta. Latte art is fun! β˜•οΈ

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.πŸ’»πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦
