I've been solving business problems using my programming skills since 2010. I believe that strong technical skills is just a bare minimum for a great developer. The best developers are those who understand the business model and the root cause of the problem they are solving.
What I can do
Building and leading a dev team: I have interviewed, hired and mentored developers for many teams. I can help you set-up your recruitment and onboarding pipeline, then train a replacement for myself.
Workshops: I have done workshops introducing Ruby on Rails to teams considering adopting this framework.
What sets me apart
I care: as a contractor, I care about my reputation. I know I have a limited time on each project and therefore I do my absolute best at it.
I see the big picture: seeing things from a technical angle is not enough. I always study the domain, then take a step back and consider the end user needs before making important decisions.
What others have to sayRob B. Team Lead at Trainline
Tom S. Product Manager at Government Digital Service
Tadas has made a huge impact in the year that he's worked at trainline. He has the rare combination of awesome technical skills and the ability communicate supremely with his peers.
During his time here he's consistently delivered way above expectations. His Ruby skills are excellent, but even more impressive is his ability to foster close collaboration and his drive to make the project succeed. He has improved communication and process across teams in our London office and built strong ties with teams co-located internationally.
I hope to work with Tadas again in the near future and would offer him a permanent position on the team without hesitation.
Tor Erik L. Technical Director at AlphaSights
Tadas is an excellent developer, he understands complex environments and finds creative solutions to difficult problems. Tadas is great at taking user needs and creating clear success criteria leading to useful features for the products he works on. Tadas is really reliable and insightful, he always delivers on time.
Having spent more than three years with Tadas at AlphaSights I came to know him as a super productive developer - great at finding simple solutions to complex problems. Not afraid to get his hands dirty, Tadas was willing to do what it took to get something done, but always maintaining his integrity and speaking his mind. Tadas is a full stack developer who can single handedly build end-to-end solutions but also dive deep whenever required.
What I would like to work onEventually I would like to run my own SaaS company. In the meantime, I would prefer helping companies that have values similar to mine.
Causes: I care about environment, social responsibility and efficiency.
Openness: It's not only about giving back, being open also results in better work practices and ethics.
Positive Impact: By making a positive impact on the project, I would like that project to have a positive impact on the society or environment.
