About Me

I'm a full stack developer working mainly in Typescript , Rust and Golang . I also know React and React Native .

I assumed the role of tech leader multiple times, consistently delving into the coding details of our projects and actively leveraging my expertise to ensure their success.

I'm now working on a project called MyTastyTales using React Native , Node.js , Postgres , Docker and .

I worked for 8 years at Vonage (part of Ericsson), Developing the Conversation API which is a SAAS software used by several prominent software companies. More specifically is a REST API providing a multichannel real-time communication.

Working at the conversation API I've learned a lot about how to deal with microservices, distributed systems, real-time communication, multi master db's like Couchbase and the WebRTC standard.

This also involved a deep involvement in the infrastructure management, using AWS , Nomad , Kubernetes ,Docker and monitoring tools such as Grafana , Kibana , Elasticsearch and Prometheus .

I've also worked with React . A crucial aspect of my job is developing demo apps to showcase the potential of the Conversation API. We typically do This with React.js and we have created the Conversation API React SDK.

Over time, my fascination with Rust has deepened significantly. I've not only integrated it into our workplace but also actively contributed to the project.

I occasionally write about software-related topics in my tech blog, Casual Programming.


Tech Leader at Vonage (part of Ericsson) - Jannuary 2018, Jannuary 2024

I was promoted to Technical Team Leader to lead the team behind the Conversation API and the Clients SDKs (JS | Android | iOS ).
As a team leader, I spearheaded the design and execution of real-time communication solutions, scaled mission-critical databases, and designed REST APIs and SDKs, all within the context of a SAAS platform serving prominent software companies.
Given the unique nature of our business and customer base (our clients are developers), business decisions are intricately intertwined with architectural decisions and vice versa.
This required me to work very closely with the product team and be a key contributor to the tech strategy and business direction of the project.
This role demanded close collaboration with various teams, including SRE (Site Reliability Engineering), Devrel (Developer Relations), Tech Support, and Presales.
As a team leader, I often extended my collaboration to working directly with our customers' development teams, pairing up to help them design and optimize their solutions. I Worked in a cross-functional team of 40 engineers, direclty leading 10 of them, working across the full SDLC.
I also Worked in an higly flexible Agile Kanban process, with a strong focus on continuous delivery and continuous improvement.
Personal achievement:
- Designed and led the implementation of integrating the IM channels (SMS, Facebook, Whatsapp) with the Conversation API.
- Designed and led the implementation of increasing the allowed participants in a conversation from 20 to 3000.
- Fixed security vulnerabilities on both our Docker images and our Node.js code.
- Designed and led the implementation of the React SDK.
- Personally implemented several example application of how to use the Conversation API, using React, Next.js, Docker and
- Participate in the Design and effort of the system migration from Cloudflare to AWS and Nomad/Kubernetes.
- Designed and implemented metrics and kibana dashboard used to monitor the api in order to reduce MTTR and MTTR during incidents.
- Designed and led the implementation of the new Cross Platform SDK (JS | Android | iOS). Using a flux architecture.
- Designed and led the implementation of Cross Platform SDK Testing Strategy.
