About Mickey

Short Summary: A strong technical, innovative and development skills that are self-driven and can balance creativity and drive for results with customer focus. Team-work and the ability to quickly understand and pick up new technologies & applications.

startup experience:
I have founded my own startup in the retail business world where i offered physical store a way that their customer will be able to buy product without visiting the cashier. The product required both server, client side development, and also involved a 3rd party RFID Scanner.
I have raised the money needed for the prototype, hired technical teammates and was part of the development team. eventually and sadly we have closed the company when no more money left.
example of how it should have been working: picking some items you'd like to buy from the store, scan the items with your smartphone, paying and living the store without waiting in the line for paying.

Business experience:
As a founder in the past I can contribute to make sure not to do the mistakes that we have done in some sensitive areas, specially in the financial field and recruiting.
