👨🏼💻 Hi, I'm Michele [miˈkɛːle] ("Mee-KE-le")
Originally from 🇮🇹 Italy, currently located in 🇩🇪 Berlin, Germany, I've been writing software for the past 15 years. In my career, I've covered a variety of roles, both as individual contributor and as manager, across different companies, founding one in the process.
I work with a wide range of technologies across the entire web stack; I'm equally comfortable managing and provisioning infrastructure, architecting and building an application backend, or creating design systems and implementing UIs.
I have long-standing expertise in:
- Full-stack web development on Ruby on Rails, Node.js, React.js
- Native mobile development on Android (Java) or cross-platform (React Native)
- REST or GraphQL-based API design
- DevOps and infrastructure automation on AWS and Google Cloud, incl. Docker, Kubernetes, and serverless functions
I work as freelance engineer and tech consultant for several companies in Berlin. I work mostly with high-growth companies, either in the early stages — designing the initial software architecture, establishing processes, helping with technical hiring — or in more mature organizations that are looking for help bootstrapping new teams and products.
If you have a project on which you think we should work together, you can contact me via email or LinkedIn. I'm open to work with companies in Berlin that have remote or hybrid arrangements, or fully remotely worldwide.
