Hello there and welcome to my website!

My name is Borut Balažek, and I am a Full-Stack Web Developer based in Slovenia, Europe, who loves to experiment around with stuff.

Currently available for freelance or full-time work. Contact me at info@bobalazek.com.

About Me

I first became interested in web development around 11 years ago. In the beginning, I started coding very basic HTML websites, but with years of hard learning and working, I got into more and more complex projects. Nowadays I mostly develop custom web and hybrid mobile/desktop applications, but I still do have extensive knowledge of developing websites, e-commerce shops and custom themes (and plugins) for WordPress.

My primary stack is PHP (Symfony) for backend (with Javascript/NodeJS & Go as alternatives), React for frontend and Docker for devops. In addition I also have some basic knowledge in Python, which I manily used for some ML projects and C# for some game development in Unity. You can view the full list of my skills at Visual CV.

When I do not work on commercial projects for clients/employer, I learn, work and experiment with machine learning and Game Development (Unity & Unreal Engine) stuff.

My mother language is Slovenian, but I also fluently speak English and German.

My human attributes are perfectionism, independent working, discipline, self-initiative, open-mindedness and trustworthiness.

Outside the office, I enjoy time with my girlfriend and my two dogs.

Sometimes I also make music - you can check out the tracks at my SoundCloud account.

My Work

I have already worked for many companies and agencies. Here, just to list a few: Philips, RWE, Innogy, Dannon, Einrichtungspartnerring VME, LesMills, Radenska, Union, Medex, Diggit, Planet Tuš and many more.

My primary workflow and communication tools are Slack, Github, Trello.

Besides my primary role of being a full-stack web developer, I have also had secondary positions, where I managed the project and implemented an agile methodology to the team (kanban or scrum), server administration and implementation of automatization (CI/CD).

ALso, I am also an open-source contributor. Just to list a few of my open-source projects: a symfony boilerplate, a BabylonJS starter kit, a boilerplate for contests / prizegames, a slack-like chat app, a local photo manager app, and many more. Please visit my GitHub account, to view all of them.
