Senior Javascript Developer | Punta del Este, Uruguay

Matias has spent the last few years building cloud platforms. These platforms interact through APIs with web interfaces and with the end user. Angular.js and material design (for admin GUIs) have become part of his essentials for building complex and responsive web interfaces. He has heavily used other tools, such as D3.js and Charts.js, for visualization purposes. On the server side, he has experience with the CodeIgniter Framework, MySQL, Linode, Node.js, Rails, PostgreSQL, Oracle, and Firebase. He has developed Android and iOS mobile applications as part of these platforms, making web applications that interact through the Javascript API and native Java ones.
