Bionic Spirit

Alexandru Nedelcu

I'm a Software Developer, currently living in Bucharest, Romania.

I'm a full stack developer capable of handling everything, from back-end development and administering systems, to front-end design and user experience. I'm experienced in a wide range of cutting-edge technologies and problem domains, emphasizing on better algorithms, quality and user experience. Since I worked as a consultant, I've had the pleasure of talking to real people, understanding and solving real world problems. I've worked in 2 startups, but also experienced the corporate environment of a multi-national company. I've had happy clients and happy coworkers. I get shit done.

I tend to gravitate towards data crawling / mining / user profiling, but I like working on anything interesting and that has a positive impact on people.
