Decided to start a startup, so wore many hats at once:
Lotus Lambda is a development language & platform, enabling you to develop cross-platform apps that run as native. But Lotus is more than just another framework - it is also a platform.
With Lotus platform you can:
2019 - 2023 | Consulting & Contracting
Worked on a few projects in collaboration with an agency during this time:
2017 - 2020 | Undabot | Software architect x Android developer
I joined this project as an architect late in it's development - it's been out for years, went through a few iterations and had a large amount of users - then scaling problems started appearing. The build times were insane (25+ minutes cold builds, 10+ mins hot), codebase was a huge legacy built throughout years and there were 5-6 team members working on it at all times. They needed me to reduce the technical debt without impacting the normal release cycle. Had quite a lot of fun doing it:
2015 - 2017 | Kino.de | Lead Android Developer
It seemed a fun idea to join a startup - and damn it was!
It was a small startup called Superpopcorn (previously Cinexio) - counting like 8 people at the time, building an app that allows you to buy movie tickets for all the movie theaters in one place. I joined in as an Android developer, inheriting a legacy Java codebase, rewrote the app into something beautiful and smooth - with even Google Play selecting us in their Editor's choice and New & Updated categories. As the team grew, so did my responsibilities - from being just a developer, to interviewing new candidates, leading the team, setting dev standards, collaborating closely with designer, PO & CEO on brainstorming new features, analysing data, prototyping and more.
Did some really cool stuff here:
2014 - 2015 | Infinum | Android Developer
Joined the agency at around 30 employees, worked on over a dozen of apps (from startup apps to enterprise apps), held internal talks, tested new technologies, rewrote some legacy codebases and most had a lot of fun - the company grew to about a 100 people that year. Unfortunately, most of those apps I worked on at the time are either gone from the play store or have been reworked so much they're unrecognizable.
