Engineer @tictail, founder @hackcyprus


I like starting things and building solutions to problems with what I do best – code. I'd like to think I'm past my Dunning-Kruger phase, but do take what I say with a grain of salt.

I am experienced in Python and JavaScript. I can also design slightly better than the average software engineer. I've dabbled around with web and service-oriented architectures, "quite big" data, computer vision and interaction design.


I am currently a Software Engineer at Tictail in Stockholm. We're working towards a grand vision – be the world's most used and loved e-commerce platform.

Prior to Tictail, I was in London for 6 years where I completed my degree in Computing at Imperial College London, got captivated by the startup world, freelanced, worked as an engineer at EDITD, interned at Bloomberg and had tons of fun.

I am also one of the founders of Hack Cyprus and a founding member of the Cypriot Enterprise Link, both of which are efforts to kickstart the technology and startup scene in my home country Cyprus. We've done some great things so far and I feel really lucky to be working along other Cypriots to better our future.

In a parallel universe, I'd be willing to spare 8 years to become a doctor.
