Hi, I am Michael Vogiatzis, a Software Engineer / contractor living in London and interested in building cool things. For the past 1.5 years I was part of Maaxi, where I focused on the back-end development and architecture of a transportation app which processes millions of concurrent transport-related data streams to help people share cabs and give public transport route recommendations.
Previously, I used to work for Social Artisan, a tech start-up where I was responsible for the back-end development of the real-time streaming infrastructure that performed data analysis on web content and social media. There I introduced Storm which became the backbone technology of the system. I have also worked as a Web developer at RTEL in Greece.
I hold an MSc in Computer Science from Edinburgh University and a BSc in Computer Engineering and Informatics from the University of Patras (Greece). I am attracted by challenging work and I believe in the power of open-source.
If you and I share common interests, then we should meet. Feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
