my name is Valerio De Dominicis, I am a computer scientist. I am a meticulous, analytic and flexible person with a passion for programming, I moved to Freiburg Im Breisgau in September 2018, place in which I currently work and live.
I have always been the type of person who likes to learn and experiment new things. This attitude in my student years translated into engaging in different kind of jobs and activities which allowed me to improve my technical expertise and acquire a good base of soft skills, such as problem solving and communication skills. In my free time I enjoy jogging, gardening, doing bricolage, training at the gym and practicing kung fu; I am keen on motorcycles, I love outdoor activities and reading, especially books about science in general and physics in particular. In the past I was an active volunteer for several associations, like the Italian Red Cross, and I am currently a blood donor.
After graduating with honors from the Bicocca University in Computer Science (M.Sc.), I started working at CEFRIEL, a computer science research and consulting company. Here I had the opportunity to acquire new knowledge and to work on projects for international customers with SCRUM agile method, as well as to improve my proficiency related to Java, relational DBMSs, frontend and backend development. Thanks to the team projects I was involved in, I learned to organize my work independently whilst being a good team player who faces unexpected events and new challenges with enthusiasm and positivity.
Pushed by the wish of new challenges and looking for a fully satisfying lifestyle, in 2018 I moved to Germany. Here I work for OXYGEN Technologies, a software house involved in the green energy field. Thanks to the company policy based on the usage of SCRUM and other methods such as pair programming, in OXYGEN I developed my relational skills as well as my ability to be a flexible and proactive team player. Moreover, because of some really specific tasks I was asked to take in charge, I also had the chance to learn how to work independently, with just the feedbacks provided me by my project manager.
In OXYGEN I enhanced my proficiencies regarding backend and frontend development with Java/JavaFX and I gained new skills on tools like Spring, Git, Sonarqube and Jenkins; thanks to this experience I discovered an interest for the CI tools, which pushed me to propose myself for being in charge of maintaining and developing Jenkins and the related pipeline.
I find interesting to be in touch with other people, particularly if from other cultures, face new challenges and acquire knowledge, reason why I’m not afraid to commit to new projects and take new responsibilities.
