I've been working with international and local start-ups and digital agencies for 10 years. My roles varied staring as junior frontend developer, senior frontend developer, full-stack developer, product engineer.

I like to solve interaction and user experience problems and develop new interfaces/web applications with javascript programming. I have 7 years of javascript programming background, from object oriented and vanilla javascript to famous frameworks such as react.js, vue, express, mongo.db and backend programming with node.js.

Depending on the projects, i create wireframes and prototypes of the product and iterate this process in order to reach the functional and simple user interface with considering feedbacks, product strategy and personas all the time in the mind. Thus user experience is the main focus of my engineering processes.
