Experience

Necara
December 2016 - Present
Software Engineer
My responsibilites at Necara include working on the SaaS.do platform by enhancing its functionality and fixing problems, which is a service that allows users to quickly create web applications without writing any code. The simple and intuitive interface quickly allows a user to setup their apps and APIs with mostly drag&drops. Technologies used for this project are: PHP, MySQL, Laravel etc.
Freelance developer
2010 - Present
Full stack web developer
Created a lot of websites and web applications in my own name as a freelance developer. Created startup web application of an image sharing app which included a lot of advanced features, advanced caching and high maintainability. I have also contributed to the open source forum software phpBB. I have created numerous modifications for this script, the most notable ones being: Donation page and Rules page.

Currently working on a personal project using multiple technologies such as Python, PHP, Javascript, Swift etc. This project is an open source project which will be spread across different platforms. Check out my Github for more information!
Picasio
August 2015 - October 2016
PHP backend developer
At Picasio I was responsible for planning out features in a technical way, break down the tasks and then start implementing them. Picasio is a SaaS application aiming to make articles fun to read by embedding interactive content into them (quizzes, slideys, polls etc.). This project is quite complex and fun to work on. I have learned a lot of new things along the way, but the most notable technology would be MongoDB. I was also partially responsible for maintaining the servers and project deployments.
WebIntel
March 2015 - July 2015
Ruby on Rails developer
Team leader and lead developer of the web intelligence team. Responsible for creating web intelligence applications to scrape detailed data from websites a client chooses. The applications were built using the following technologies: Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL etc. The scraping was done using the Mechanize library and Selenium. This was my first time using Rails commercially and it was really great!
Frakton
October 2014 - February 2015
PHP backend developer
I was mainly responsible for keeping already created websites bug free and deal with client's requests for new features or fix bugs. My responsibilities were focused on the back end part of the websites. The websites we had to deal with were mostly portals (famous ones in my country) and it was a very delicate position to be in due to the huge responsibility. There were also a lot of occasions where I had to build a website from scratch or use the company's internal CMS. PHP was always the programming language we chose to work with and the database choice was MySQL.
KOHA Ditor
2012 - 2013

Started internship at Kosovo's most famous daily newspaper company. My duty was to create and design the layout of newspaper pages.
