Hello, I'm Svilen.
I'm an experienced software engineer based in London, UK. I was previously CTO and co-founder at Heresy, a VC-backed company which closed doors in early 2020.
Other than writing code, I also have experience in hiring, building and managing small teams, agile software development, GDPR compliancy, and product management.
I'm not available for hire at the moment, but if you're interested in adopting Elixir at your company, providing training for groups of engineers, or tackling a specific problem, I might be able to help.
Scroll down for more info and if you think we can potentially work together, feel free to get in touch.
Whenever I get time, I'm trying to give back to the development community by speaking at events, occasionally writing articles and working on open source. You can also read some kind words from people I've worked with in the past.

“A superb front-end engineer, with a strong mastery in AngularJS. A pleasure to work with, and one of the smartest developers I know.”

“Svilen is everything you need in a quality developer; he understands what needs to be done, he's inquisitive and he gets things done to a very high standard. When he joined The Amazings, he was able to adapt to the codebase very quickly, committing his first code change just a day after he joined. He's a very positive person and has always been up for new challenges. Working with him has been a complete pleasure.”
