I’ve been in software development for over 8 years. I was mostly helping startups with building their dreams during this period. My focus was primarily on the mobile and backend development. Initially, I started as an iOS developer and throughout the time moved to Project Lead role. Now I’m excited for the opportunity to leverage and extend my knowledge as Software Architect at SKODA AUTO DigiLab. My interest in technology implemented in cars and in mobility makes perfect fit here.

When I was a little child, I had always wondered how things work, I tried to figure out every little thing and I enjoyed proposing new solutions. This stayed the same even when I was an adult, and over time, the little things became big projects. Over the past few years, I have worked as a designer and systems analyst in top telecommunications companies in Europe. I started working in product development area and I took part in several successful projects, which I was able to transform from a thought on a paper to a real operation. I have always tried to come up with an innovative solution, and this has brought me to ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab, where innovation meets reality.
