Work experience

Jun 2014Present

Senior Software Developer/Software Development Manager

Fortech,Cluj Napoca, Romania

I had a mix of responsibilities that included technical oversight, resource allocation, recruitment and mentoring for a team of over 10 engineers working on an e-commerce platform with our overseas partner. In this role I had to balance between project requirements and timelines as well as building a strong development team through mentoring and coaching.

I was directly responsible for implementing a reliable and sustainable on-boarding process for new hires. I continued bringing knowledge and standards in the whole development team continuously after.

I was part of a big update in our infrastructure which included adopting a new continuous deployment system which includes Team City, ProGet and Octopus. Also we went through a major migration to a new SVN server which was accompanied by a .NET framework upgrade to .NET 4.5.
