My name is Grzegorz. I work at Automattic. I am a passionate programmer living in Poland, married to my beautiful wife Ania. I specialize in front-end development. When I am not coding I enjoy spending time taking long walks in picturesque Oleśnica, where I recently moved, holding hands with Ania. I am also a huge sports nut who plays basketball, squash, runs or rides a bike and of course watch, God knows how many hours of NBA or soccer games. I love travelling, so I would not mind swapping programming into strolling, snorkeling or simply lying on beaches of paradise islands, which I dream to see all.

I have programmed for 19 years, 12 professionally. I am fluent in client-side web technologies such as JavaScript, HTML, and CSS, yet very adept at server-side programming having enterprise experience with PHP and MySQL. Highly skilled in user interface development for web applications from concept to implementation. Well-versed in performance optimization, internationalization, maintainability, and scalability. I’m experienced in Object-Oriented Design and formal methodologies such as eXtreme Programming. I have experience of working remotely.

Specialties: open-source software, agile development, test-driven development, incremental design, JavaScript (including React, Redux, Webpack, Jest), PHP (Symfony, Zend Framework, PHPUnit), MySQL, HTML, CSS.
