Visma a/s - Payroll SaaS
  • Created a parallel AWS infrastructure based on a platform that handles financial reports of thousands of employees from different countries before the schedule with no impact on availability.
  • Revised and cleaned the whole platform based on specific criteria. This requires understanding all code, communicating with multiple teams, and modifying code and tests. I impressed the client with how fast I managed to do this without major bugs.
  • Created a plan on how to handle the duplication of the whole service. The plan was kept very much to the end with very little modification and proved to handle the pain points of the platform without downtime.
  • Implemented new key extensive features into the system with no major bugs very early into onboarding, proving to understand the system very fast.
  • Kept close communication with other client's teams and managed to understand and solve issues that involved multiple teams, proving good communication skills.

AlphaCOM | Using Deep Learning in Modern Games

I created a game from scratch inspired by an award-winning tactical game XCOM. For this game, I understood and used the most recent discoveries in the space of intelligent algorithms for learning games, particularly the AlphaZero state of art algorithm in Chess, Go, and Shogi released by Google DeepMind in December 2017.

Echocardiography Segmentation | A Unified Approach

Using state-of-the-art technologies for medical segmentation, we improved the method used for left ventricle segmentation and ejection fraction prediction over publicly available datasets. I established a new benchmark for this problem by creating an RNN-CNN network that can predict the ejection fraction better than any automatic method publicly available.

Mercedes-Benz Tester Update

An updater of the internal software diagnosis solution that exists in every service on more than 14,000 devices in the world for Mercedes-Benz vehicles. This robust desktop software and a big project can improve most developers' knowledge. The application was created using the .NET framework with an advanced mediator-signaling system.

Tech Survey

A serverless application that works as a survey within the company regarding their technical knowledge and interests. The back end was written from scratch in .NET Core deployed as Azure Functions, and the front end was extended and deployed as a React app within a Docker container on Azure.

Next Generation TOS

An app developed by the TBA Group for container management and planning within a port. The app has the microservices approach with modules that communicate on an event-based system with ActiveMQ messages.

Bernhard DAFD

An app developed to lower the maintenance cost of smart buildings. This app needs to monitor, analyze, and predict IoT data. The application is based on an event-driven architecture deployed on Azure using IoT and Azure Event Hubs. Different services were added using Azure Functions or Databricks jobs.

Sea of Thieves
While working as a consultant for the well-known triple-A game development company Rare under the Microsoft umbrella, I helped balance and bring meaningful user data into the in-game world. Also, I managed various data pipelines and Databricks jobs with high throughput data.

Trust No Bunny
As part of a team with two developers, I worked on the back-end infrastructure in a multi-platform environment for mobile, web, and desktop. I succeeded in creating and deploying a modular solution that is easy to extend to multiple in-game mechanics.

CaptiveAir DuctWork

A web-based application would allow the user to design in a 3D space the preferred ductwork of their building. The application used a WebGL build with TypeScript, allowing access to the application directly on the web. As part of a two-person developer team, I was in charge of improving the code-base, maintaining it, and fixing bugs.


A web-based application for managing goods transportation, different dispatchers, and real-time tracking of the packages. The app even supports customized advertisements, allowing users to sell and buy services.

The back-end was developed using two APIs. One is the ASP.NET API for handling dispatchers and bookings, and the second API is a performant serverless Azure Function API for handling advertisements and truck events.
The front-end was developed using Angular.

The highlight of this app development was the integration of Google Maps for truck tracking and a robust validation system to include multiple transportation models.
As a full-stack engineer, besides feature design and development, I analyzed all the systems regarding security, performance, and maintainability. I improved the architecture of the whole application for better maintainability.
