I find constant improvement and learning to be very important in life. I love to do big things that rock the world.
My career started as difficult problem solver and technical consultant in billion dollar IT company Playtech where I spent 7 years. Another major job was team leader in ZeroTurnaround. Before that I have built serveral startups among which one has received Estonia’s best e-service in e-entertainment 2013 award and another won Seedcamp week London.
I have Cyber Security masters and Physics Bachelor degree. I have taken part in many science and math competitions and was nearly chosen to Estonian team to IPhO – International Physics Olympiad 2000. In 12th grade I got 4th place in National Physics Olympiade in Estonia.
I do a lot of volunteering. Most relevant in business mentorship of new companies in Estonian National business mentorship program since 2014. In Estonia is unique opportunity for volunteers to take part in Police activity which I do since 2008. Army has been with me since 2001.
These days I mostly work as a contractor and freelancer on PHP Laravel and WordPress\Woocommerce projects. I have multiple permanent customers whose systems I help to support and small development companies who I help with “nasty stuff” eg above average complex issues that take time and effort to make it work.
Portfolio of different projects I have built recently:
