How does this work?

I'm a Software Developer at Typeform currently working in VideoAsk. I've based in Barcelona for the last few years, but I'm originally from Lisbon and did a bit of contracting in London before moving here. I love building products with great UX, automating things at home and sailing in my free time.

Fullstack Developer

Muzzley was an IoT startup aiming to be a single platform for all the different IoT devices before things like Apple HomeKit and Google Home existed. When I started, I worked mainly on the integration of those devices, doing reverse engineering of the APIs when needed, and implementing their managers in Node.js. Then I was mainly focused on the API, but I've also worked on the website and core messaging platform.
