A little bit about myself

I'm a software developer from Romania ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ด, but right now I live in the Netherlands ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ . My current job is as Experimentation Engineer at Miro.

Experimentation, this is the way!

For the first part of my career, I was a .NET developer, all over the place. It was quite fun, but at some point, I became bored with it(around 8 years in) so I decided I want to pick up something new.

After that, I did Angular for a while (around 7 years), most of it at SnappCar. This did not stop me from playing with React, Vue and the like in my free time. There are so many interesting things in the Frontend world ๐Ÿคฉ.

Nowadays I'm empowering Experimentation ๐Ÿงช at Miro. It's not that much about the technology anymore, but about the process and the people ๐Ÿ‘ฅ. I'm still doing a lot of coding, but I'm also doing a lot of other things, like helping teams iterate on
their ideas ๐Ÿ’ก, build an in-house iteration platform ๐Ÿก, coaching ๐ŸŽ“, and so on. I'm loving it! ๐Ÿฅฐ

Besides programming, I also like to play board-games โ™Ÿ๏ธ๏ธ, video-games ๐ŸŽฎ, walk my dog ๐Ÿถ, watch TV ๐Ÿ“บ, nothing out of the ordinary ๐Ÿ˜.

You probably already realized that I like emojis ๐Ÿ˜.
