Chris Mlinac

Angestellt, Senior Software Engineer, Trove Recommerce

Berlin, Germany

About me

I'm a product-minded software engineer with over 8 years of experience that is open to new opportunities. Experience across the stack with JavaScript, TypeScript, Python and Java. I have a strong preference for full-stack or frontend leaning roles. I'm currently located in the US and looking to relocate to the Berlin area. My German is rapidly improving, but at this time I'm only open to English-speaking companies.
