Dragos Mihai

Software Consultant | Entrepreneur

Bucharest, Romania

As a ex-CTO of a mobile startup and having built many software products, I am very capable of creating top quality software and increase the business value through technology. I got involved into challenging technical situations and built apps for various industries (AI, hospitality, B2B cloud services, telecom etc.) which made me very effective in finding solutions. My way of working with other developers, as confirmed by the teams I've build and worked with gives me an edge on my competition. Through my understanding of the best software building practices built with passion over the years, combined with my entrepreneurial nature and business focus, I am suitable to lead the development of any app.

        Software Developer

I implemented features which impacted 5 millions of users of our telecom service. One of my most complex features was saving call data real time inside a MySQL database, so I had to optimize the process in multiple ways (temporary memory tables, optimizing indexes, MySQL events and triggers, sharding, storage engine optimization).
