I'm a senior software engineer with over ten years of full-stack experience in frontend/backend web development, hybrid/native mobile app development, service/API design & development, and DevOps. I prefer working on projects on an end-to-end basis, from business analysis to solution shape-up, from prototyping to MVP delivering, from sketching on paper to final product shipping. I've studied & worked in Australia for more than six years, and eventually, I obtained an Australian passport. Therefore I have strong communication skills in written & spoken English, and I don't need H1-B visa sponsorship.
