About

My name is Grzegorz. I work at Automattic and contribute to WordPress core. I am a passionate programmer living in Poland, married to my beautiful wife, Ania. When I am not coding, I enjoy spending time taking long walks in picturesque Oleśnica with my family. I am also a huge sports nut who plays basketball, squash, runs, or rides a bike. I also greatly enjoy watching, god knows how many hours of, NBA and soccer games. I love traveling, so I would not mind swapping programming into strolling, snorkeling, or simply lying on beaches of paradise islands, which I dream of seeing all.

I have programmed for over 20 years, 15 professionally. My area of expertise is front-end development and web technologies such as JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. In addition to that, I’m very adept at server-side programming having enterprise experience with PHP and Node.js. I’m highly skilled in user interface development for web applications from concept to implementation. I’m also well-versed in performance optimization, internationalization, maintainability, extensibility, and scalability. Finally, I have over 8 years of experience working remotely.

Specialties: open-source software, agile development, test-driven development, incremental design.

Technologies: JavaScript (including Node.js, React, Redux, webpack, Babel, Jest, Puppeteer, ESLint), PHP (WordPress, PHPUnit), HTML, CSS.
