I’m currently the Head of Engineering at a UK startup called Trouva (trouva.com) https://startups.co.uk/startups-100/2020/1-trouva/. We have just recently been acquired by a larger company made.com https://startups.co.uk/news/made-buys-startups-100-winner-trouva/
I currently manage a team of +- 15 Engineers, 2 Engineering Managers and I directly work with Product Managers and Designers to define Roadmaps and Priorities, while also dealing with day to day, Team culture, Recruitment, Team development, architectural decisions, etc. I also do like to contribute as much as I can to the codebase and the improvement of it.
I've been working with JS for the past 9 years in different parts of the stack and with different frameworks. On the frontend I've mainly worked with EmberJS and NextJS (React) .
As you will be able to see I’ve been working mostly with marketplaces and more specifically delivering High Quality products to consumers.
I love the cryptocurrency space, and I’ve been engaged with it for the past couple of years. Until now I've been more involved as a consumer in many different projects in very different areas (like DEFI, NFTs, ICOs - 99.9% on Ethereum) and of course majority of time using Metamask or directly interacting with the contract.
I'm now at the point I want to make the switch to develop and help grow the ecosystem and while also learning more about web3.
Your listed requirements closely match my background and skills. A few I would like to highlight that would enable me to contribute to your bottom line are:
Highly skilled in designing, testing, and developing software
Thorough understanding of data structures and algorithms
Hands-on software troubleshooting experience

During the past year, I was working on an online banking system for the UK market.
It was a complicated project with integration of different services and API, frontend with react and backend on go. The application was deployed into AWS cloud using Docker
The last project was not having huge real-time traffic, but we were ready to scale at glance, as we were using cloud deployment.
More challenges were related to the integration of different services and protecting personal data
