The most amazing...

...was working in a team of 4 implementing a complete real-time AR app —API, web app, iPhone app, and preprocessing tons of data (C++, Node.js, Amazon Cloud).


  • Software Engineer

    2018 - PRESENT
    • Worked on Android-based projects.
    Technologies: Java, C++
  • Computer Vision Research Engineer

    2016 - 2018
    Blue Vision Labs
    • Developed a TypeScript/Python pipeline using the Amazon stack—processing tons of data with S3, computing on E2, and storage with PostgreSQL.
    • Coded optimized Three.js (JavaScript) and the WebGL viewer—showing millions of objects in the browser.
    • Analyzed and optimized SQL queries over a large PostgreSQL database.
    • Dug into the SLAM system and adapted various open-source projects for internal usage, mostly using C++.
    • Reconstructed a dense point cloud; also did the comparing and tweaking (Python/C++).
    Technologies: WebGL, PostgreSQL, ECMAScript (ES6), Python, C++
  • Research and Development

    2014 - 2016
    • Designed and wrote C++ highly optimized firmware for a 3D camera.
    • Wrote core computer vision algorithms in CUDA on Tegra TX1 in the firmware.
    • Designed and wrote a Qt user interface for a 3D camera.
    • Helped the Bonjour/Avahi network to discover connected devices; also designed and implemented the API and aided in the communication between the driver and firmware.
    • Created Gazebo physics simulations of bin-picking.
    • Designed the multi-platform (Ubuntu, Windows), built it (CMake), and deployed it (CPack installers).
    • Wrote the C++ programming for a real-time 32-bit Teensy microchip controlling mirror.
    • Designed and implemented various real-time APIs using C#, ROS, C++, and Halcon.
    Technologies: Robot Operating System (ROS), CUDA, Python, C++
  • Scala Developer

    2014 - 2015
    Avitech GmbH
    • Designed a large import/export system.
    • Tackled various challenges that originated in the above project like how to make an easier, less error-prone system with lots of branches.
    • Came up with ideas how to reduce the amount of manual work by abstraction and parsing the XML to Scala objects automatically.
    • Wrote nice, full-test covered Scala code.
    • Gained hands-on experience with smooth, pure, functional code.
    Technologies: Scala
  • C++ Developer

    2014 - 2014
    • Implemented C++ parallelization of hidden Markov models.
