Web development, web anything.

Everything started with building simple sites. Free templates and WordPress. Then I learned how to transform design into code (html/css/js). Built my first WordPress module and theme from scratch. And then I met e-commerce ...

My first venture in e-commerce happened in 2012 when I started work in the largest Slovenian online shop Mimovrste. I got familiar with back end processes, payment systems and all sorts of integrations.

In 2014 me and my friends tried our entrepreneurial skills with our own start-up called Enolyse. It was hard work, but we all learned a lot. I got to try AngularJS on front-end and on back-end we used Laravel for API. I was lead developer, designing complete architecture of the app.

In 2016 I started working for leading omnichannel, multi-brand and direct-to-consumer electronic retailer in Europe, Studio Moderna. We were running 125+ stores on a single Magento instance. This was also my first experience with work in a larger development environment - our www development team consisted of roughly 20 developers. At that time I already knew Magento, but I really got to know it inside out there. I implemented more than 20 payment systems in 18 countries.

In the beginning of 2018 I was tempted into a leading role in Slovenian biggest classifieds portal Bolha. I run small development team, working on three different platforms. Currently I mostly battle coordination with product development and sprint planning, extinguishing fires between departments and inside of team.

I am looking for a role where my skills will be appreciated, my personal/family time respected and my work fairly compensated.
