About Ezgi

I'm a techie who loves building products from scratch with a commercial focus. I founded Nephorium to commercialise ShareOps.net, a cloud business application I developed for the project management industry, implemented my own high-frequency trading application for cryptocurrency trading (market making/arbitrage) and have significant experience in working with business intelligence/analytics platforms.

My experience is mainly with data and web applications, though I'm happy to take on something new and learn what I need to in order to achieve it.

Please check my LinkedIn profile for more details.
