Since October 2015 I’ve started working as a freelancer with a shop in Genoa, called Stylecar, building an application for the customers and a webapp to manage all the processes of the shop (assistances, reservations, help-desk for the customers, etc). In the next years I built more and more functionalities and the thing started to grow.
Stylecar, since 1987 is the reference point for thousands of Genoese citizens that since the birth of telephony, are turning to its organization. Since 2007 they have decided a change of course specializing in the commercialization of used equipment, to make it in fact their core business today.
With the Secondhand Mobile project we have merged our experiences both in the real world as well on the software one. We wish to divulge a format and a know-how that can put our partners in a position to face an important but very complex market, in the simplest, immediate and profitable way.
The aim is to open the doors of the second hand market to our partners. A market that has been constantly growing for 10 years and which represents an increasingly important niche in the international scenario of this sector. This represents the opportunity to increase the now meager profitability currently conditioned by increasingly poor demands on the product and unfair competition in the market.
As soon as I turned 18 I started my own freelancer activity, SmileApp, building mobile applications and websites for stores and companies in my hometown, Genoa. In my portfolio I have many clients, among which stand out an important phone reseller, Stylecar, with over six thousand clients registered in the application that I built, and a medical and dentistry conference organiser, e20, with more than forty thousand clients all over Italy.
My amazing experience at Sablono and the awesome people that I met during the previous summer were the reason I decided to come back in the summer of 2016 to work again at Sablono. This time, besides building the Sablono platform, I also lead some side projects, that has been later implemented in the main workflow, implementating a live communication between the web platform and the mobile application using NodeJS and Socket.io and a system of push notifications through APNs and GCM.
Sablono is an IT Company based in Berlin which provides a web application for construction companies to easily track their progress across multiple construction sites. My work was to build clear and efficient user interfaces for the web application employing AngularJS as the main framework. This experience made me really understand the working environment and how big teams operate together to achieve a common goal through methods like Git for the versioning and publishing control and the Agile Method Scrum for managing the product development.
Sablono and I personally, welcomed Matteo already two times in our office at Berlin. He is a very passionate and smart developer with high self motivation to quality and elegance on the work he delivers - on paper and digital.
I'm highly recommending him as front end developer and engineer but I also see a high potential on other coding topics. I wish you all the best and hope to welcome you another time in Berlin.
I've worked with Matteo during his internship at Sablono, in Berlin. He is not only a talented developer and good learner, but also a very nice person to work with. He always has very good ideas and delivers good quality work, and also knows how to work in a team. He has high potential, and is always curious about new technologies and tools. I totally recommend him.
I'm currently looking for an internship during the summer of 2017 to improve my skills in the following areas:
