About Andrei-Victor Serban:

I am a professional, who has finished his Master’s degree in Artificial Intelligence at the University in
Manchester. Throughout my career, I have worked mostly as a full stack engineer at multiple
companies, such as Cisco International Ltd. and American Express. I have had the opportunity and privilege to work on many multifarious projects that have broadened my technical skill set
substantially I am grateful for the opportunities I have had. More recently, I had a breakthrough to a more senior role at Avalara, which has given me the opportunity to lead by example as well as allow others to shine and improve their technical prowess.

Secondly, my programming skill set could be a great asset for a company's business requirements, as I already have 8 years programming experience in JavaScript/TypeScript, C#, GoLang, Java, Python, PostgreSQL, MySQL and MongoDB. I have started working with these programming languages and databases in my high school and university years and have become quite proficient in them throughout my career.

Thirdly, on a personal level, I am a friendly and fun to interact with person, that recommends me as a
good team player, skill which I have developed through my previous professional and academic
experiences.

Last but not least, more  recently I have managed to develop my DevOps knowledge by working with Jenkins, Docker, Kubernetes + Helm, Gitlab Pipelines, SumoLogic, Prometheus, Datadog, Terraform and AWS to help develop the architecture / release process for many projects throughout my career.
