Me

My name is Alexander Petcoglo.

I'm a self-taught front-end developer with a passion for visual design. I worked with Kalkul, HumanFirst, Fueled, Vaticle, Pravoved. I like to be involved into building non-trivial stuff, both visually and technically. I've been working remotely since 2016.

Currently I'm based in Chișinău, MD.

You can reach me by e-mail at mail@rckt.cc.

Alexander, or Sasha as we call him, is one of the most efficient engineers that I have worked with. Sasha has a great discipline, with delivering tasks that he has planned in a timely manner, with a well-estimated work plan. The dedication towards the quality of his work is something that any team member would appreciate from Sasha, as well as his independence in achieving them. Sasha has a very decisive attitude in which you can rely on, which will drive the development with a strong sense of initiative. On top of his engineering skills, Sasha has a great sense of design, together with a touch of humour in the design work that he produces which I have found to enjoy. I have no reservation that Sasha would bring a substantial contribution to your team and I would be happy to give further information regarding his work through direct correspondence. Please liaise with Sasha to obtain my contact details.
