Hi, I'm Getter

Lead Mobile Engineer, passionate about UI/UX design & shipping things fast

Expert in designing, building, and scaling mobile platforms. In addition to technical leadership, my latest experience includes managing the day-to-day work of an engineering team and being a Scrum Master. I advocate an iterative approach to development to not let perfect be the enemy of good.

My Skills

Entrepreneurial and driven software developer

Years of traveling around the world and living in different cities around Asia, Europe and North America has given me the ability to quickly adjust to new situations and learn on the go. I enjoy working with people that are passionate, curious and creative (with a sense of humor) just like me. I am open for positions where I can make an impact, including founding/leading roles.

Mobile development

I have extensive knowledge as a Sr. React Native Developer of the entire iOS and Android ecosystems. From dealing in Native code, to each respective App Store submission and approval processes. I'm excited to write performant code pushing the boundaries of what's possible.

Front-end development

At my core, I am a React fanatic. So makes sense I'd love Next.js as well. I've dabbled in Gatsby and of course vanilla React apps, but nothing beats the server-side rendering (SSR) and API routes that Next.js provides out-of-the-box. Add in Tailwind CSS and now we're really cooking!

Open Source

Passionate about Open Source projects and contributions

As a beneficiary of the Open Source community I try to contribute as much as possible. I've been working on open sourcing my own bigger projects including some smaller TypeScript / React / React Native libraries.

React Native

I've open sourced a fun personal project Getter.dev, an iOS and Android application built on React Native. Includes TypeScript, Lottie, Twilio Video (WebRTC), React Error Boundaries & React Navigation.

About Me

Some things you might not know about me

Do you speak any other languages?

I speak four languages. English, Estonian, Japanese and Russian. I was born in Estonia, but lived in England when I was 5. I've also lived in Japan and took Japanese at University.

Where are you currently located?

I am based on the West Coast, though have lived all over. Originally from Europe, I've lived in Tallinn and Barcelona. I've also spent years in Asia with the majority of time in Tokyo and Bali.

What do you do when you're not programming?

Anything that gets me into a flow state! I love to rock climb and ride my e-bike around the city. We spent the last year in Denver, CO, so I had the opportunity to take advantage of an entire season skiing in the Rockies.

Any recent achievements that you're proud of?

I like to do things that get me out of my comfort zone. Challenges, such as obtaining my PADI Open Water Scuba Diver license, ASA Skipper Sailing license, and a motorcycle license have helped me overcome many of my fears.
