eMAGAugust 2013 - September 2018

HUB Manager. 
  • Started to improve the skills required by the new position: people management, project management and communication.
  • In order to improve my work and to stay in contact with the technical side, started to create my own tools to automate as much as possible from the administrative tasks.
  • Invested time in technical workshops for my colleagues and even joined one of the development teams and did actual coding when they were a bit overwhelmed.

Team Leader (August 2013 - June 2014) 
  • Started here as the team leader of a team of 5 developers and our first project was to decouple the vouchers workflows from the existing monolith and move them into a new application using Symfony 2.
  • Besides coding I was also in charge of creating milestones in collaboration with the product owner and reporting to the team manager from main HQ. 
  • Since in the new hub there was only the development team, I wasdesignated as a central point of contact for other departments like HR, Accounting and Facility, acting as an office manager besides my main technical duties.

PHP Developer for a company that develops software for critical business processes for ISV and a growing number of listed companies worldwide.
  • Spent most of my time working on a telecom project using Symfony 1 for a Dutch customer. 
  • It had two main sections - the one dedicated to customers and the intranet one used by employees.
  • The most important feature was the service ordering part - a multi-step form where every step was dynamically generated based on the information gathered on the previous step.
  • Based on my experience with the telecom project and Symfony framework, I was assigned to work in parallel on a similar but smaller project with Symfony 2.

PublicBetSeptember 2006 - October 2007

PHP Developer for a betting company located in Romania.
  • In charge of the website and weekly magazine for a sport bets company. 
  • A pure PHP in-house built application scrapped content (standings and results) from different sport based websites. 
  • Took the challenge to improve.
  • For example - content scraping was started manually and if something went wrong most of the time the data scrapped until that point was lost.
  • On top of this, the process took around 4 hours to complete. 
  • After rewriting the application with CakePHP the runtime was decreased to less than 1 hour and the data saving process was changed so that in case of a failure you should be able to continue from the moment when the failure occurred.
  • Continued to work remotely for the new company and at some point I have rebuilt the application using Symfony1 (
