Boris Mesin

Team lead / Senior full stack developer

Introduction

After working for over two decades in Web development I have expert knowledge of backend and frontend development, providing technical solutions for complex business requirements, planning and executing product requirements, distributing work among team members monitoring their work and submitting deliverables on time.

Business Support System solution I had worked on for over 6 years saved thousands of man hours and increased overall productivity by efficiently handling all business processes including timesheet managemet, project and document management in a company with over 300 employees.

My work enabled better investment decision making and profit increase by implementing and optimising data retrieval queries and algorithms from large databases and using this data for different financial, marketing and system performance reporting tools.

My goal is constant personal and professional growth. I want my work to make a difference.
