About Me

I’m Jecan, or call me JC. I'm a developer, curious adventurer (traveled over 30 countries and lived in 3 continents) + love for climbing, and was one of the co-founder at Octoa.

Based in The Netherlands, I'm a EDA and DDD practitioner, currently using Laravel, Nuxt, Vue and also interested in Big data, ML/AI, DevOps, Go and Rust. In simplicity, I'm a passionate and pragmatic developer with an interest in interdisciplinary humanistic and technological disciplines carrying a strong passion in solving problems and optimizing solutions.

With more than 10 years of experience developing full-service web applications, I help and support companies reaching their product goal via contract or project based work. I have built and launched many successful SaaS products; for example Vesper becomes one of the fastest growing Dutch startup within 2 years. I've also be a part of successful e-commerce platform implementing road maps, and providing structure to the team which eventually scaled up.

What others say

"I had the pleasure to work together with Jecan to build a new platform from scratch. From a more technical point of view, his coding skills are awesome. Clean, robust and very mantainable code is what Jecan delivers the most. His skills about setting up the architecture of the application was also something we all could rely on. From more pesonal and social point of view, I was amazed on how we could work together in a very unexpected syntony from day 1 and this led to an enjoyable and fun way to write many lines of solid and reliable code in very short amount of time. I hope to have the chance to work with him again very soon."

Alessio Evangelista, Tech Lead
"Jecan isn’t just a technically exceptional software developer; he’s also a standout leader. He joined the team recently coming into a fast-paced and, at times, the chaotic environment where deadlines were often tight. Not only were his technical skills robust, but he also shined when it came to accuracy. When Jecan was working on a project, our error-correction needs were always reduced by half or more thanks to his outstanding diligence and attention to detail. Plus, Jecan never shied away from sharing his knowledge with others and often took the reigns when others weren’t sure how to proceed. Calling him an asset seems like such an understatement. As he works to take the next steps in his career, I wholeheartedly recommend him to any company looking for a reliable, accountable, and highly skilled software developer."

Alexander Dyriavin, Senior Software Engineer
"I have worked with Jecan at Boldking, in Amsterdam. He is in the top tier of developers I've worked with. He is excellent in all aspects as a software developer should have with great communication skills, excellent ability to design solutions, code skills, and troubleshooting problems. It was a pleasure working with him and I sincerely hope to work with Jecan again."
