F - Application Manager - Blackrock, Dublin, Ireland


Blackrock, Dublin, Ireland


I have more than 10 years experience in Web Development and more than 6 years experience in leading development team, with particular focus on Front End for highly scalable and high performance websites.

My career started while I was working for Sky Sport television as a real-time video editor for football matches. There I identified the opportunity to simplify and improve the process workflow & shift management so I developed a web application for this specific purpose, Job Organizer, that I sold them founding my first company, EimTech.

I worked for several customers & Web agencies (Carta e Matita S.r.l., Kettydo S.r.l., BusyBee S.r.l. and RMG Connect / JWT) - until I signed an exclusivity deal with the last one (J. W. Thompson S.p.a.) to work for them as technical leader and architect of their new digital department.

While working for JWT, I spent a day a week doing what I love: teaching. I taught Flash design and development (basic & advanced courses) in IED, an European Design Institute.

In September 2007 I came to Ireland, where I worked 6 months as one of the Front End lead for the Web 2.0 startup Ammado, before joining Microsoft as a team lead for an internal project development.

After 1.5 years working for Microsoft I have been head hunted for SkillPages, an incredibly fast growing network where I lead the Front End development team since October 2009.

SkillPages reached > 1 mil users within just 5 months: my technical leadership gave a significant contribution to the company to scale properly on the Front End side and to be ready for further growth.

In my spare time I love working on web projects. Some of them have been featured on national television (Italian Rai - http://bit.ly/dxmxSh) and other ones have been featured on TechCrunch and other major blogs (www.agglom.com - http://rww.to/2GtREX and StyleRays - http://tcrn.ch/9QqIog).
