September 2015 - Present
Front End Developer for an ever expanding number of clients including Eni
Being the first digital agency in my career and being one among the best in Rome, I've learned to be proficient in a fast-paced work environment. The great variety of work, technologies and prestigious clients involved makes it an interesting place to work in, always on the run to grant quality code on tight deadlines.

Web development of second-screen mobile applications
The great challenge I took was to introduce responsive web design in our projects. Initially the apps were optimized only for a few models of the iPhone and the iPad, it has been my concern and initiative to refactor the front-end code, by introducing new languages and tools such as Sass and Css Preprocessors in our workflow, for the two company’s flagship apps (Mediaset and Aljazeera America The Stream). This made them optimized for any device through a mixture of responsive web design, CSS3 and jQuery. Another major challenge I faced and overcome has been working with dynamic content. The company’s apps are in fact delivered to the customer that manages their content through a CMS, and in order to deliver a product that is robust and always well formatted, I closely worked with the programmers team to create a solution that grants a level of reliability high enough to sustain any unexpected content behaviour.
Neomobile Spa Rome
February 2012 – September 2013
Development of the HTML and CSS of the web, mobile and wap pages of Neomobile’s digital products for the following company’s markets: Brazil, Spain, France, Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador, Italy, Peru, Germany. I’ve occasionally took part in developing internal tools and projects.
Being in a very well structured company, with clear and defined work procedures, helped me grow both personally and professionally, as well as enjoying a young and international working environment. I had the opportunity to redefine the way I work in a more intelligent way. I definitely improved my technical knowledge thanks to an excellent team leader who had taught me a lot and I’ve gained a mature work vision, learning to work in team and always keeping in mind that the detail is never disconnected from a broader context.

Graphic and Web designer
In this small yet expanding company, I had the opportunity to turn my passion for the web in a job right after graduation. Being the only web designer in the company I have often dealt with the whole process of development for our customers, from site requirements to graphics, code, and deployment, and I was occasionally joined by in-house programmers and web marketing and SEO specialists.
