Senior fullstack engineer 10+ years

I’m a fullstack web engineer with a decade of experience in breaking down product ideas into software bets that I quickly validate with customer interviews. I consulted as the most senior fullstack engineer and tech lead at (one of) the oldest Ruby on Rails shops in the world, Lunar Logic. I’m fluent with several technologies, but focus on business outcomes—software is just a side effect. 🎯 Successful (software) bets 🎯 - Led (fintech) to a big exit - Rescued (oms + ecommerce) from failed launch to recurring revenue - Modernized (big data + dataviz) without ever stopping for a rewrite 💻 Tech 💻 - Ansible / Heroku / AWS - Ruby on Rails / Hotwire - Node - TypeScript - React - Elm - PostgreSQL ⭐️ Testimonials ⭐️ "Riccardo can optimize for much better performance without needing to overhaul the foundation, even when the foundation is kind of crumby: - He’s knowledgeable, willing to do the research, good at doing research, and full of good ideas. - He never lets perfect be the enemy of good enough. - He relentlessly made forward progress while patching things up along the way. - He’s always reassessing, considering the best direction forward. I would absolutely recommend Riccardo! Because he’s both extremely competent and inventive as a coder and a good communicator, project manager, and leader. Only hire Riccardo if you're willing to give him some creative control, because otherwise what's the point of hiring someone with his talents?" Michael Heimbinder Founder & Executive Director @ HabitatMap/AirCasting === “You have always made me feel like we could do anything whenever we worked together, it was only a matter of time.” Mateusz Luterek Ruby Developer @ Shopify === “The way Riccardo approaches complex problems is highly structured. Before setting out to tackle an issue, he sits down to analyze it first so that no effort is wasted. Thanks to this we could be sure that the plan that we set out will have a positive impact.” Rafał Cieślak Software Developer @ Teleport === “I am certain that Riccardo would be a great asset to any team. Here's what struck me most while working with him: high technical expertise, passion for the work he does, responsibility & accountability, uniquely high levels of productivity, dedication, clear and respectful communication.” Shadi Rezek Co-Founder & Software Engineer @ Knapsack

Highly versatile Back End Developer with a background in client management and a fervor for learning, creative problem solving, and breaking down code to build it better.

Before my adventure at Turing began, I had never looked at a line of code in my life. Actually, for most of my life I wanted to be a doctor, having the opportunity to help people every day in a field of work that was constantly expanding and searching for improvement. However, when I got to my freshman year of college, I realized that I had no desire to apply a band-aid, much less perform surgery! Floundering, I threw out all my hooks, and what came back was The Turing School of Software and Design. Unsure at first if this industry was right for me, I completed Turing's "Try Coding" day where you get to write some very basic code ("Hello World!") and immediately I was hooked. I immediately fell in love with the way programming felt like solving a puzzle or a mystery, and how every problem I worked on was unique in its own special way. The more I learned about this industry, the more excited I became. Not only would I be in a field that is constantly expanding and providing me more to learn every day, but I also learned about how the software we write can lead to monumental improvements in the lives of people who truly need it! In just seven months at Turing my life was completely changed in all the best ways possible, I found a drive and passion for development that I never believed was possible. At times I have struggled and been pushed to learn and adapt at such a rapid pace that I wasn't sure I would be able to hang on, but with the skills I've learned and the joy I've found in software development, I know that I'll never look back!
