Career Summary

I started my programmer career at PC Net CZ in Brno where I helped buildind company’s web pages in PHP and launch several customer web sites.
Then I moved to Prague to T-Mobile CZ, I started my work on the company website in ASP.NET. In two years the website became very successful Web Top 100 competition, for next 5 years it took plase among first three competitors because of it's high accessibility and usability.
I also took part in projects focused on voice automation services and speech recognition.

After ten years I decided to move to a company which is strictly focused on Microsoft's technologies, so for two years in Nexum trilog company and then in Havit s.r.o. I have been developing applications tailored exactly for customer needs using the latest versions of ASP.NET, MVC, Visual Studio, TFS, Azure.

Proficiency

With more than 18 years of experience with programming - Microsoft Certified Professional I am currently involved in developing enterprise web applications using ASP.NET & MS SQL.
As an experienced web developer using ASP.NET with focus on UX I like to be involved in a leader role of development team as of 30% leader, 50% developer, 20% UX.
As a team or a company you have oportunity to get developed and reached work ethics which enables utilizing my Competent Leadership Skills. Up on that you can experience doing speeches for colleagues (as sort of coaching) inside a team and public speeches to be more visible.

Personal characteristics

I behave as a cosmopolitan, open-minded and sustainable thinking person. I am always interested in new topics and ideas, technologies and challenging jobs. Although I like challenges I would rather avoid of competition. I feel best working in a team, fully dedicated to tasks I am competent to do and responsible for. I love innovations :)
