Computer Science

From childhood I remember the fascination of the C64, Amiga and 386 … then there was this so much that it’s hard to remember. I felt in love with design, IT and software development – blending arts and technology.

I have over 13 years of professional experience in IT. In projects I have been involved performing different roles. I started as a programmer and web designer. I worked as a business analyst and system analyst, IT architect, PM and auditor. I have been involved with projects ranging from small scale sites to complex multi-national ecommerce systems with annual cash-flow at level of 10 mld PLN and enterprise portals for public institutions. Nicely and grandly called enterprise-class solutions, with a strong emphasis on compliance and regulations / by standards. I think that on the one hand I learned the importance of good UI/UX, and on the other how complex and business critical IT systems can be (including project’s and organization’s management systems).

I worked for Sun Microsystems, Oracle, Symantec, APMG International and many other smaller companies across public and private sectors.

Currently my main position is Chief Operating Officer (COO) at ENP.

Over the last 11 years I trained and coached teams from: ABC Data, Arvato, Asseco, Atena, Bank BPH, Bank WBK, Capgemini, Deutsche Bank Polska, IDEO, Infovide-Matrix, ING, Interia, Kemira, Macoscope, Media-Saturn, Ministerstwo Finansów, Ministerstwo Sprawiedliwości, Nokia Siemens Networks, Oracle, Orange, PGE, RTV, Euro AGD, Scania, Sopra Steria, Sygnity, Tieto, Tauron, UBS, Unity, Volvo IT, ZUS and many more.

My work and attitude

I manage my professional methodically. Useful and intuitive software, as well as clean code is what I have always appreciated, and still do. For many years now the unity of the art of software engineering, project/product management and a constant striving for greatness of the developed software – the perfect, unattainable and undefined definition of excellence. I do not like compromises and hiding the skeletons in the closet. I question the surrounding world openly (but still with respect), defending what is most important – user experience.

I try to have a broader horizon, than the upcoming invoice or the closest deal. I worked closely with people who taught me how to organise my work, build a healthy working environment and engagement. Those were valuable lessons – a lot of lessons learned and great solutions. A grand journey through trials, analysis, drawing conclusions and adapting to the surrounding environment. Personal and professional development. I am extremely happy and thankful for this period to be able to continue.

I work conceptively. I design agile processes and organisations, observe patterns as well as good and bad practices in organisations. I work with the teams, as those are the basis of success.

I demand a lot from myself. I gladly get my hands dirty and not lose time talking about kid gloves. I get engaged in the current issues the teams are facing and remove actual obstacles, standing in the way. I just make things work, simple as that.

I like to sleep less and do more. An idealist who cares about small details.

About me

I currently view myself as a trainer and agile team’s coach with rich international business and technical experience. I talk to company owners, stakeholders and decision makers in order to make them aware of the benefits and threats stemming from agile management. I coach the management to build awareness and importance of the agile transformation.

From the operational standpoint, I organise the work of programming teams, supporting them on the way to being agile. I create a unique environment allowing for development and creative work. Whatever one would call me, I am simply a person, who values balance, project order and a healthy work atmosphere. I try to share my knowledge and teach others, passing my “know how” to make them fully independent and even better than I am.

The values that I treasure: transparency, creativity, courage, engagement, adaptability, openness, constant development, respect and cooperation.
