- Digital DetoxSenior web developer, 2015 - present
- De Rosa AurelioSelf-employed, 2012 - 2014After my years at the University of Salerno I decided to work as a freelancer starting a personal business. With this move, my commitment with the projects at the University of Salerno isn't over. On the contrary, I've been involved in another national project, a PRIN this time, called M.I.DIA.. M.I.DIA. is a balanced corpus of texts, ranging from the 13th century to the first half of the 20th century, written in Italian. For this project, lasted more than two years, I've curated all the phases of the process: from the texts cleaning and their digitization to the design of the database and the development of the front end and the back end. The final result is a search engine that helps morphologists to study the evolution of the Italian languaege. In addition to MIDIA, I've worked on several other projects especially for Cemit DS, a digital company based in Turin, Italy, and Learnable, an online learning website featuring books and courses.
- Fismar s.r.l.Consultant and Web developer, 2006 - 2012have worked as a consultant and web developer at the Fismar s.r.l company based in Caserta, Italy. More specifically, I developed the company's website that I have been managing during the years, and also wrote some internal utilities for the company. I'm also the developer behind their newsletter system. At the end of my work for the company, I have dealt with their online campaigns and several SEO activities. Some of these tasks pushed me to develop Site Seeker, a software to know the exact position of a web site on the most famous search engines.
- University of SalernoFellow graduate, 2010 - 2012I was a successful candidate for the award of a postgraduate scholarship, for the term of 28 months, concerning research in the field of corpus linguistics at the Department of Language and Literary Studies of the University of Salerno. I worked on the FIRB project "Perdita, mantenimento e recupero dello spazio linguistico e culturale nella II e III generazione di emigrati italiani nel mondo: lingua, lingue, identità". My role was to develop and manage the website www.parlaritaliano.it in addition to the creation of the tools to query and search the data of the VoLIP corpus. The tools developed allow to extract statistical data from the database that consists of transcriptions of spoken language. The subject of my work has been used for some academic papers that I have co-authored.
- University of Naples Federico IIStage, 2009 - 2009I worked in a team focused on computational linguistics at the LUSI laboratory, under the direction of professor Francesco Cutugno, located at University of Naples "Federico II". I developed the website of the CLIPS corpus and some software for the analysis and the study of statistical data extracted from an Italian speech corpus. These programs are used to extract different information about the corpus such as lemmatization, POS tagging, counting time and words, and so on.
- Planet ServiceAccount Manager, 2006 - 2009I worked as account manager at Planet Service, a hosting and housing company based in Milan, Italy. During this experience I have had the chance to improve my interactive skills working closely with clients and colleagues. My responsibilities were to solve clients' issues with our platform and system, to create empathy to build customer loyalty, and to contract with clients to develop custom quotes.
A significant part of my work and my experience is represented by the disclosure. When not busy in writing code, I'm a regular blogger for several networks (SitePoint, Tuts+ and FlippinAwesome), speaker, and author of books.
