Front-end Programmer

Used technologies include HTML5, LESS, Angular, NPM, Typescript, Docker, MariaDB / MySQL, PHP 7 (Composer) and git.

Support Volunteer

Telegram Messenger LLP


I helped Telegram users with their questions regarding the app and platform. This included troubleshooting and triaging bug reports and feature requests, escalated relevant issues to the appropriate internal teams.

Besides these tasks, I also suggested new ideas for the platform and made an early Android prototype for user-configurable themes, which led to the feature being implemented across all official apps.
