Personal Summary

I was genuinely thrilled to see that a business development vacancy is open at sqwirllab. I write to you in hopes of scoring this position, and growing my skills further at your establishment.

I started my career as a 3d graphics freelancer in 2009, and since then have widely diversified my field of expertise to cover a large set of the computer science field. I wield multiple programming languages (Python), one of which I teach at Notre Dame University. Over the years, I got hands-on experience with the software development lifecycle at different companies working in various industries (production, games, multimedia, banking, ERP, etc.) I have been meeting clients from a very (very) young age, and have cultivated the necessary skills to generate leads, close projects, and do everything that's in between.

According to the Myers-briggs test, I am an ENTP-A character (debater), which really helps me to work with people.

Throughout my career:

  1. I have worked and held leading positions in the following industries: Games/multimedia systems, mobile apps, ERP systems and web development, UX/UI design.

  2. I have had hands-on experience with design, art direction, development, project management/coordination, requirements analysis, and project estimation throughout my career.

  3. I excelled at steering teams internally on one side, and at liaising with key accounts of the companies that I've worked for on the other. Met deadlines and ket everyone happy.

  4. I managed key accounts, and had direct contact when communicating requirements, brainstorming features, discussing and convincing about best practices, etc.

  5. I have always been a proponent of the agile development process and design thinking wherever I worked, and it frequently produced decent improvements.

  6. I have travelled to do sales pitches to high-profile leads abroad.

  7. I have mentored startups pro-bono at local incubators as well as local game development communities.

  8. I have taught programming and system analysis at NDU

I have an interest is in fintech: My graduate research is currently concerned with blockchain technologies, and tackles the blockchain scalability problem.

I have developed a good academical knowledge about machine learning and its implementations in various fields. I familiarized myself with ML programming tools such as Tensorflow, etc. I believe that bots and automated assistants are the future of customer engagement for businesses, and will save enterprises large sums of money every quarter while boosting user experience, and that's just one technology we're talking about.

My goal is to commit to a company that is committed to progress, and values its resources. I firmly believe that I should look no further.

Genuinely looking forward,

My regards.
