Recommendations for Paolo Iannelli

“Paolo is one of the smartest people I know. Working with him on several BigData projects within the company he never failed to amaze me with his vast knowledge on the topic and the speed with which he realized complex map/reduce jobs and fine-tuning the databases to allow for the quickest possible queries. I would really enjoy working with Paolo again and can highly recommend him!”

“Paolo is a IT professional with a preference for a structured but minimalistic approach. At Spil Games he worked on data processing for our analytics platform, and knows how to translate business requirements into technical solutions. His code is currently being used to process tens of billions of rows of data per month, in near real-time, on limited hardware. I would be happy to work with Paolo again.” October 15, 2012

Gerron Mulder SEO & Web Analytics Manager, SPIL GAMES

“I worked together with Paolo since April 1st, first of all he’s a good friend, but also a very professional colleague. every time I had questions, about either python, bash, C, RabbitMQ and a lot more, he was always able to help out.

He’s a specialist in software development, and knows how to solve problems.

It was really awesome to work together with him even for that short time! I recommend this guy, specially if you like to talk about coffee and food, then he’s the right guy.” October 14, 2012

Lucas Rolff Performance Engineer, Spil Games

“Paolo is a great guy to work with. He knows his stuff and much more, a devoted guy to overcome challenges and issues that arise in automating advanced technical processes. As Hosting Operations team leader I invoked Paolo several times to overcome unforeseen issues at implementing new products. Because he understands all aspects of the wide and complex environments, combined with a good listener capability he was of great help within the organization during troubleshooting and solving the issues.” July 21, 2012

Jeroen KuijkTeamleader Hosting Operations & Support department, LeaseWeb B.V.

“I’ve been working with Paolo at Leaseweb in an agile development project.

Paolo is an IT specialist in development who has a very broad knowledge of software development and uses this knowledge to translate complex technical issues to solutions. And he does the work like it seems very easy. His hands really fly over his keyboard.

He is very interested in the latest trends in software development and is really up-to-date on the latest news. As a tester I was very happy to have him on the team, because he is very interested in ways to test the work from his development perspective. He has a quality approach on developing software and was the promotor in the team for (for example) test driven development (first test, then script).

He understands that quality is for a big part a communication issue and agreed on doing product risks sessions with the team members, understands the importance of reviewing, discussing and working closely together.

He did also tune the coffee machines in the office, so the espresso that came out of it was really great! He’s got also a great sense of humor, and that helps in difficult times.

So here you have it, high intelligence, great sense of humor, passion in his trade and a great coffee specialist too. I recommend Paolo if you’re in need of a pasionate developer. I hope to meet him again in the future.” December 21, 2011

“Paolo is – in addition to a pleasant fellow and a very good programmer – in the possession of the rare quality as a programmer not to get bogged down in the code or technology, but to focus on the goals of an organization. Moreover, his personality allows him to think in terms of solutions and to participate pro-actively in projects. Paolo is therefore a valuable colleague in an ambitious environment such as Leaseweb.” November 12, 2010

On multiple occasions I worked with Paolo or requested his help with technical dificulties when it came to scripting.

He is dedicated to his task and while he offers you a working sollution, he still keeps on working on the project until he has a clean, fastworking sollution where he can say ‘this is nice code and works fast’

I was very happy with his help and scripts and would work with Paolo any day again.” June 27, 2010
