Customer support L1 and L2 (10-50 employees)
Internet and Information Technology
ShortPixel is a WordPress centered company, with it's own WP plugins for image optimization and media management.

I was looking for WordPress projects and this is how I came across ShortPixel's job offer at the beginning of the year.

My role was as follows:
- reply the customers via our HelpScout CRM system
- inspect and identify possible issues of the customer directly in the frontend of their site using google chrome developer tools (Network, Sources, Elements, JS Debug)
- read the knoledge base and orient the customers towards the solutions
- in some cases reading documentation of other plugins to identify possible conflicts between their products and our product
- fixing and improving the existing documentation. Adding new documentation (both internal and for the customers)
- consult with team members regarding different tasks, regarding our products and regarding improvements, feedbacks and other topics I would see whilst working there
- investigating and testing our products. Creating various test cases, similar to the customer's ones, creating different WP environments, configuring various parameters, applying SQL dumps, using SSH to login to customer machine/our machines
- reading through closed tickets to find similar issues and the resolutions found there in order to direct the customers toward the same solutions
- using our internal systems for fixing customer issues with billing, invoices, quota usage, email change etc

It was a really short but fun project. I found it really easy to grasp, even though I never did customer support ever before.
My customer needed me for a couple development functionalities and for automated testing, so I stopped working on support and focused my energy in other areas of the products.

- A personal blog at
- A web crawler for an US lead generation service (dropped, due to lack of experience at the time)
- A couple of JS automation tasks and browser automations using Google Chrome Macros Plugin

In the Spring of my first Uni year, I started to apply for internships and job shadowing offers. This was after I decided I want to improve my career path during my studies.

After many interviews, applications and rejections, Montran took me in and I was really happy about it.

The project was purely educational, we worked on replica of company's RTGS system in a new technical stack: Java + Spring Boot and Angular on frontend.

I was in a team of students, me being the youngest one. 

My roles were various and were covering:

Available worldwide
Currently I am based in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

I'm open to team building physical meetings in a different location and for a few weeks business trips. Although I am not thinking of relocation. I would mostly prefer 100% remote setup.


I have strong traits that make me capable of taking part in new projects.
I trust myself I can prove my skills and I know how far a way I have come till now and how much value I could bring.
