Hello_

My name is Mario Kenda, and I'm a Software Engineer currently living in Slovenia. Whenever I'm not writing code for company Paysure Solutions, based in London, I am enhancing my coding knowledge as a Master's student at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

I have a diverse set of skills, ranging from HTML + CSS + JavaScript, all the way to ReactJS, Angular, Wordpress and a little bit of Linux server administration.

Resume_

I am a Software Engineer that enjoys tackling serious problems and solving them with a minimal set of tools and maximum elegance.

I love working with ReactJS (JavaScript, TypeScript) and I am also comfortable with Angular, PHP and NodeJS. From early beginnings with Wordpress plugins and simple algorithms at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in Maribor where I got my Bachelor's degree in computer science, to more complex web applications, which I encountered working for several different companies, my goal was always, to get useful experience and provide the best possible solution for my client’s problem. At U-centrix, where we had built web applications for a major tourist company in central Europe called PALMA, d.o.o. (www.palma.si), the first step towards that goal had been made.

Seeking new challenges, I found my place at Inova IT, where I began developing consumer and enterprise-grade products, with a focus on advanced web initiatives, to maintain an advantage in this fast-moving field of development.

After what had been a very exciting year at Inova IT, I moved on to Povio Labs, a YCombinator Winter 2014 company based in San Francisco, where I have spent my time building amazing products for companies from the Silicon Valley area.

In 2019, after finishing my projects at Povio Labs, I've decided to put my skills on the market as a freelance developer, where I soon landed my first contract for an InsureTech startup - Paysure Solutions.

I am always on the lookout for new tools and my curious nature drives me towards learning new things on a daily basis. Most of all, I am full of energy and my outgoing personality makes me a perfect addition to any project. For these reasons, I am confident I can add my piece of the puzzle to any future tasks that come my way.
