About Daniele

I'm a developer from Italy with an excellent eye for clean, elegant code. I'm a problem solver with years of experience, particularly in backend development. I've worked for an enterprise search technology – Funnelback – in London for more than 3 years, where I served as a support consultant and dev-ops engineer. I then moved to Tokyo to work as a full stack developer for a housing management platform at Zens. I am currently working as a freelance developer at the Milan-based tech house, Mikamai.

Well versed in Object-Oriented as well as Functional programming principles, I am always very willing to learn new technologies and techniques to add to my already large toolbox of expertise, so that I may always use the right tool for the job.

Ruby, Ruby on Rails, Javascript, Coffeescript, Vue.js, jQuery, HTML5, CSS3, SCSS/SASS, Nginx, Git, Solr, Elasticsearch, Ansible, Jenkins are just some of the technologies I am familiar with. I am extremely comfortable with Linux and the command line. I also have the ability to learn any new technology stack that is put in front of me with relative ease.

In terms of communication, I am a 100% bilingual Italian & English speaker. I also speak business-level Japanese and some Korean.
