Years of experience



I am a seasoned PHP and Laravel Developer with extensive experience in optimizing large-scale platforms and improving system efficiency. Currently, I work as a Senior PHP Developer at NexTek in Rönninge, Sweden, where I have successfully reduced query response times by 40% through the use of MySQL Cluster and Galera. My expertise includes implementing Laravel Horizon with Redis, resulting in a 30% improvement in job processing times. Additionally, I play a crucial role in code reviews, providing valuable feedback to ensure high-quality code and best practices within the development team. I also design and implement CI/CD pipelines using GitLab CI/CD and mentor junior developers to promote continuous improvement and high standards. Previously, I served as a Senior PHP Developer at Codepole in Stockholm, where I led the development of a microservices architecture that significantly enhanced scalability and performance. I leveraged Elasticsearch to boost search performance by 50% and implemented Sentry for effective error monitoring and logging. My background also includes a role as a PHP Developer at Kogifi in Wrocław, Poland, where I contributed to projects with substantial budgets and developed caching strategies that reduced page load times by 25%. During my internship at Kogifi, I migrated legacy code to the latest version of Laravel and collaborated on developing RESTful APIs. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree from Chalmers University of Technology, which has laid a strong foundation for my technical career.

Best back-end engineers I've ever worked with...​

“I interviewed about a dozen different firms. DevsData LLC is truly exceptional – their backend developers are some of the best I’ve ever worked with. I’ve worked with a lot of very well-qualified developers, locally in San Francisco, and remotely, so that is not a compliment I offer lightly. I appreciate their depth of knowledge and their ability to get things done quickly. “
