I am a Software Engineer

Christian Guimarães

I am a polyglot developer who loves to embrace other frameworks, languages, platforms and paradigms, as and when business problems require.

I’ve been working in the software industry since the mid-90’s where I worked as a system architect, developer and consultant on projects in a wide range of businesses.

Nowadays, I spend most of my spare time working with functional programming, Open Source projects and writing my own stuff.

Interests arrow right

  • My main interest is programming languages, web development and software guided by tests. I'm always in pursuit of technologies that improves the software quality as well as the development process.

    Also, as a side interest, I try to apply together mathematics and computation. This means understand the interface between applied mathematics, numerical computation and the applications in software systems, focusing on new algorithms, their analysis and numerical results.

    I want to be part of an organization where technology matters, and the people in the organization know that it does. I want to be part of an organization comprised of smart collaborative people where my individual efforts can make a difference.

    I can contribute with an extensive experience writing robust, well-tested code. Also I have a frontend and user interface experience, but my massively work is focused on backend programming.

    I like to build software in short iterations. Working this way provides a continuous value and adapt the software to changing in the requirements.
