CV - Alex Boicu

You need an account to view this information.


I am a passionate software developer, driven to create optimum web applications by focusing on writing quality code - modular, documented and easily understandable, extendable and efficient. Although I'm new here, on FreelancerMap, I have plenty of experience working with .NET Framework, .NET Core, Angular, React and a lot of other great technologies on my previous projects. I have almost 6 years of experience in this field.

Feel free to review some of my personal projects/ideas that I developed lately:

Speaking of my career, I am currently working on Darwin, one of the most popular online benefits management platforms for the employees, but recently I have also worked for Scania on a great project involving a lot of breaking new technologies and complex architectures. Getting involved in such complex projects, not only improved my .NET skills but also taught me a lot about building high scalable microservices architectures. For achieving this, I have been working with technologies like .NET Core, AWS, Docker, Kafka (for service-to-service communication), DataDog (for visualizing the state of the system: logs, metrics, alerts, dashboards), PostgreSQL, etc.

Before working with Scania, I was part of a big team working for a complex product used worldwide: PhonEXONE. This product was used by many companies (offering support for their customers) for monitoring the Calls activity of their call centers. Personally, I worked for creating the functionality that was providing real-time analysis via configurable dashboards. This involved a great amount of full-stack work, using technologies like .NET Framework, WebForms, SignalR (for web sockets) and frameworks like Angular and Knockout JS on the frontend. I have also been in charge of migrating the project from Webforms to Angular and Web API.

As my first job, I have worked for about 2 and a half years for a small startup company working with clients from the UK. Considering that we were just two employees, I was dealing with lots of responsibilities and I had challenging periods and tight deadlines to meet. During my time there, I used technologies such as .NET MVC, Entity Framework, MS SQL, jQuery, Bootstrap for building web platforms for insurance-industry related companies, but also, I built presentation websites using WordPress. I also used Angular, Web API and Ionic Framework for building hybrid mobile applications.

I have a Computer Science Degree and for my Bachelor's thesis, I built a social media-like mobile application for people interested in traveling together and sharing their trips. For developing that, I used Angular and Ionic framework along with NodeJS, ExpressJS on server-side and MySQL.

Currently, I am following my Master’s degree in Software Development and Business Information Systems.
