Software Engineer, 2010 - 2012
I joined Canonical to fulfil my long-time dream to work for a Free Software company. I'm currently starting as a fresh QA Tools Engineer. While technically hired by Canonical I do my work for Linaro, a not-for-profit organization that is determined to take open source development on ARM to the next level by simplifying and improving the whole software stack. I've helped to create LAVA as one of the lead developers. LAVA is the key standalone product created by Linaro (apart from contributions to projects such as Linux or the GCC).
Software Engineer, 2008 - 2010
I joined Samsung to see how it's like to work for a major international corporation. I was assigned to the Samsung Headset Platform, a division managing proprietary, embedded software platform powering most Samsung mobile handsets. During 2009 I lead a small team of four engineers working on software customisation required to adapt generic handset stack to local Polish market. Since October 2009 till end of April 2010 I was a Project Leader overseeing commercialization of the SGH-B5310 in over a dozen countries across Europe, including UK, France, Italy, Poland, Spain, Greece, Sweden, Serbia, and others. I was working with numerous engineers and product managers in Europe and South Korea, trying to deliver the product on time. During those challenging times I learned a lot about inner workings of this huge corporation. On several occasions I re-located to Samsung plant 2 in Gumi, Gyeongsangbuk, South Korea where I worked with many Korean colleagues, learning not only from their technical experience but from their culture and working style as well. Overall I learned a about technical aspects of modern mobile phone stack including RtOS design, mobile phone system architecture, SoC graphics capabilities, GSM/UMTS technology, bringing products to market, adapting software to local requirements and working with large teams. In the end I decided to return to my roots and leave Samsung for Canonical, the maker of Ubuntu.
Software Architect, 2006 - 2008
I joined Sentivision in February 2006 and quickly started influencing company's technical decisions. About half a year later I became a Software Designer (later called Software Architect) responsible for researching new technologies, creating project analysis and technical design documents with detailed implementation schematics. During my time at Sentivision I spent three months on a business stay in Tokyo, Japan and aided in an on-going development for several customers. I worked on a dozen of medium and large projects for various international corporations. Projects, while quite differentiated were all revolving around creating and delivering firmware for various STB's with DaVinci, SMP 86xx and BCM 74xx processors. I learned a great deal about embedded development, software design, IPTV market and surrounding technology. Sadly I was forced to leave Sentivision in August 2008 when the company was shut down by our investors.
Software Engineer, 2004 - 2005
I was the lead developer of a research project that resulted in creation of the National Corpus of Polish. The project (which is now open source) created a novel database storage engine for vasts amounts of text and a powerful query processor capable of running very complex queries over tens of gigabytes of data. The project was finished with the aid of my friend Daniel Janus. Daniel also added rich GUI client, modern website and networked search server (written in C and Java).
