Hi, I'm Gabriele and I design and develop web applications.
I'm currently working as frontend engineer at booking.com the greatest online travel agency in the world. I'm focusing on frontend development, backend development and user experience. I have 9 years experience in designing and developing for the web, strong project management skills, a great eye for detail and I don’t want to stop learning.
For the sake of fanciness, my passion is travelling and I love my awesome dog.
During my last 9 years I've:
- Designed and coded from the ground up: a chat-commerce platform, a real-time social news aggregator, a web-based native mobile app editor, a medical sw dedicated to external fixation, one of the most visited online Italian dictionary and its mobile app, an e-commerce CMS and more than 15 small to medium websites. more details →
- Had the opportunity to being involved in projects from various fields like medical, fashion, sport, education, catering and logistics; both as a freelancer and as part of a group.
- Visited Japan, India, Turkey, Greece, Portugal, Spain, France, Germany, UK, Serbia, Hungary, Netherlands, Denmark and played basketball a lot.
When I was a fullstack developer at Appfactory I've worked on:
Airshop is the first Italian chat-commerce ever, I'm currently leading frontend development and also contributing on the backend by coding nodejs microservices.
Noisefeed is a real-time social news aggregator, I've builded it from scratch and I'm still maintaining the platform by adding new features on request.
I've crafted a few personal projects like:
I love beaches! So I decided to create Beachoo.com, an online platform which allows you to find the most beautiful beaches in the world.
Sinonimi Contrari is one of the most visited online dictionary of synonyms and antonyms in Italy, it helps students and teachers to simplify their works.
As a freelancer, I've archived more than 15 web projects. My latest 3 are listed here:
Healthyouth is a 501(C)3 no-profit organization that promote and protect health among youth. It was a pleasure to build its new brand identity.
An emerging online fashion outlet, I've started this project from scratch, builded its custom cms and SEO, designed the website, studied users interactions, etc. I'm still maintaining this website also by giving advices to its employees.
I also have learned to:
Less is more, of course. I always try to remove any element not strictly necessary, I think that simple things are also the most usable.
Think first, code after
My main goal is to satisfy all the stakeholders involved in the project. I think that a good thinker is a better developer, i try to be both as best as i can.
Work in a group
I consider myself a good observer, this gives me a good overall view of the project in which I am involved. I also have worked in task groups on assignments and this enabled me to develop skills in team working.
Design for mobile
I can develop both responsive website or hybrid mobile Applications, focusing on simplicity and usability.
