I want to work in Europe

If there is something I love about my career is the flexibility software engineers have to work anywhere in the World.

I recently came back from a trip to different countries in Europe, and absolutely loved it. The USA is different in so many ways. I loved how people in Europe live. The way they interact with each other, how life is lived and the low-stress levels made me want to go to live and work there.

For the last eight (8) years have been working based on Miami, Florida, USA. I did remote work for a year while working at PLXIS. I consider myself an experienced engineer with strong background in Functional Programming using Scala with a combination of Object Oriented Programming languages with Java and other OOP languages.

In my toolbox there a lot of work with Lightbend (formerly Typesafe) reactive platform which includes extensive work Lagom Framework, Cassandra, Kafka and different flavors of AKKA (streams, HTTP, clustering). There is also extensive work with Apache Spark and I got certified as MapR Certified Spark Developer. My skillset also includes work with Amazon Web Services (AWS) components (S3, EC2, Lambda, EMR, Redshift, Kinesis, etc…).

There is also Python, a language I have been using since my time in the university for different tasks such as complementing Spark jobs, managing infrastructure for AWS and for implementing Lambda functions in AWS.

Five years of C# / .NET are an essential part of my previous work which includes work using .NET since version 1.0 to version 4.5 in very different environments like ASP.NET, WCF, Silverlight back in the days, and WPF. As part of my .NET experience, there is some purely functional work with F# in academic research.

Now, I am open to working abroad, anywhere in Europe where English and/or Spanish are spoken.
