I started my career as a freelance developer in 2007. Nowdays I'm a senior PHP engineer and systems architect with 14 years of experience in PHP development and 11 years experience with symfony framework. During that time I've been able to get familiar with many different technologies and concepts for efficient and modern web application development.
I'm mainly a backend developer specialized in the creation of custom backoffice web applications and APIs. Some other areas I'm also very strong in include database design / complex queries, performance analysis and optimization, and system integrations.
Even though I've always been technically inclined, I do have an academic background in Business Administration. I have worked and advised on optimizing processes and (management) reporting. This background enables me to not only focus on the technology but also to understand and help achieve business goals of a project.
I enjoy working for established companies with already set workflows, processes, and software architecture, but I also feel right at home in startups where new solutions need to be created from scratch in a dynamic environment. I can work either remotely or on location within the Randstad. I'm fluent in English, Dutch, and Polish.
Coca-Cola - Paydrink
Coca-Cola uses their Paydrink application to add mobile payments capability to existing vending machines. Originally developed to be used within one single country, soon after other divisions started showing interest in it as well.
I have been contracted to make the existing solution scalable and configurable for multiple European markets using the concept of multitenancy. By leveraging sound programming concepts and the functionality of symfony framework I was able to make the application ready for European rollout efficiently and whilst keeping each country's data separate and independent.
