About me

Senior software developer with over 8 years of Python experience and more than 10 years in building software for Environmental, Energy Markets, and Fintech sectors. I am eager to relocate to Germany with my family and work on-site. My expertise is primarily in Backend development, focusing on APIs, Data Engineering, and DevOps. I am analytical, a fast learner, highly independent, team-oriented, fast-paced, and a self-taught engineer, always open to challenges, with a focus on scalability and performance. This enables me to add significant value to projects, share knowledge effectively, and pursue excellence.
