My job is to solve problems with technology

I'm a T-shaped person. My primary expertise is around backend software development and building things fast. At the same time, I'm a full-stack engineer with a strong focus on growth and business problems. I like marketing as it forces you to understand why you're building things.

Things I can help you with:
  • Quickly building MVPs and SLCs.
  • Iterating and growing your established product.
  • Integrating AI into your product and/or company.
  • Solving scalability and performance problems.
  • Working on technical SEO planning and execution.
  • Business tools automation and optimization for high ROI.
  • Managing your IT as a part-time tech lead/CTO.
...or be your next-best hire as a Growth Engineer

Head of Outreach
Irina Papuc
Toptal Head of Outreach
As the lead developer for our Outbound and Outreach teams, Armin has proven himself to be a very competent, senior-level developer. He meets the demands of a remote, world-class environment every day, delivering high-quality projects on time across multiple timezones. He has proven himself to be an extremely reliable person, at ease communicating with our North American sales team while also managing and coordinating dev projects with our team in Europe. He has the singularly crucial talent of zooming in on a problem and dissecting it to find the best possible solution and often exceeds our team's goals. I recommend Armin without hesitation.

Can we work together?

I believe so!
I'm open to hearing about all kinds of small and big projects.
But I bring the most value to PLG-focused (or willing-to-be) companies.
