Cover Letter

I am quite familiar with modern software development practices, including unit tests, shared code ownership, test-driven development, continuous integration, and continuous delivery. I am experienced in building and maintaining web applications and backend services. I am a self-learner, and I can quickly adapt to new technologies and frameworks. For me; programming languages, operating systems, platforms or IDEs don’t matter. They are just tools. They are constantly changing, and so should we.

I am always positive, solution-oriented and curious about the latest technologies. I like solving problems and I am self-motivated.

PS. My first javascript code was written with a ballpoint pen on my squared notebook in 1998.
