I’m an experienced Sr. Software Engineer that specialises on Ruby on Rails development. I have more that 12+ years of experience as an Engineer (5 of those in Ruby/ Rails).

As a result that experience and the methodology I employ for my craft, I can assure you that my code is: Readable and Clean.

I put an strong emphasis on testing. It is not an afterthought, it matters way too much for that. It **IS** the only way to increase certainty in the reliability of a project.

Some of the technologies I have experience with:

- Heroku
- Ruby on rails 3 and 4
- Coffeescript / jQuery / Responsive Design
- Git (via Github, Bitbucket )
- TDD and BDD with: Cucumber / RSpec
- Redis / PostgreSQL / Memcached
- Bootstrap 3 ( Integrated with Ruby on Rails)
- Ruby 1.8.7, Ruby 1.9, Ruby 2.0
- ActiveAdmin
