I like problem solving. I’m constantly in search of what I can take, twist and stretch until it becomes something better. I quickly realized that software was the safest place for me and have been a software engineer ever since. I started my career working with startups using the latest technologies to innovate, and gradually moved to working with larger and larger companies. I’m fascinated by the impact that using technology the right way can have on a business and by the ways to achieve that.

At TaskRay, I’m part of a small, driven team, which I loved from my times working with startups, but I also get to work on solving complex business problems for large audiences.
