About Me

About me

Hi, I’m Jakub Chmiel. I’m in the process of developing apps for construction teams, electrical inspection and ship construction. In these projects, I add business value and minimize technical debt.

I have a great work ethic. I believe in focusing on a few things that I specialize in. And I gained a lot of momentum since mostly I work on things that I like.

My Android Specialization

I specialize in native Android business/utility apps- for Android 5.0 Lollipop and higher. I’m experienced in offline-first apps that synchronize with other platforms. Also, multi-module apps built using clean architecture. I don’t develop games.

I’m up-to-date with Android news and new tools. I use it whenever it suits a given project and makes it better. But it’s not about using everything that’s new. I’m pragmatic.¬†

Recently, I worked on beacon car insurance applications used in a few countries. Similar apps that shared main components but had different branding and minor feature differences (flavors).

I also developed a modern timetable app for schools. It was an experimental project. I tested technologies such as MVI architecture and Firestore real-time database. I’m glad that I tested these on a pet project- not on something serious. Sometimes I just dive into useful Android technologies and even write about it here or on r/androiddev forum.

If I’m not working doing that or developing apps, I’m probably either looking for new business opportunities or playing guitars.
