My name is Szymon Fiedler.

I'm Software Engineer fascinated in Domain-Driven Design. I started my adventure with Ruby on Rails in 2009. In 2014 I become a member of the Arkency team.

I built greenfield projects in the past, but legacy software is my natural habitat. I developed online accounting software, a PCI DSS Level 1 compliant payment gateway — from scratch. I worked with miscellaneous SaaS platforms. I endorse software testing and being responsible developer. Apart from Rails, I also do JavaScript, typically in React. Remote work is my way to go — did this before it become mainstream 🦠.

For almost 15 years I was doing volunteer work for children as a scoutmaster. I trained aspiring scoutmasters and served as leader in various units of a boy scout company of Scouting Association of the Republic (ZHR). But what matters the most — I've built friendships for life there. I also spent years (sic!) in the woods, under the tent 🏕.

Apart from software, I'm interested in speciality coffee ☕️, outdoors and mountaineering — I climbed Mont Blanc (4808m MSL) 🏔.

I live in Poland 🇵🇱 with my wife and three kids.
