Wojciech Szlachta

Software Engineer • Freelance Consultant

Computational physics PhD with experience in both academic and commercial settings. I spent the last 5 years working in commercial environment as software engineer and IT/quantitative finance consultant on projects requiring good understanding of software, hardware and networking technologies.

Having worked with a number of both high-level and low-level programming languages I understand computer programs both in terms of higher level abstractions and individual instructions. I am a firm advocate of testing, automation and using metrics to improve performance.

I can learn new skills, troubleshoot and fix technical issues quickly. I am good at understanding difficult problems, solving them and recognising shortcomings and limitations. Having worked in competitive and high-pressure environments I have a strong track record of delivering reliable solutions on time and communicating them to both lay and technical audience.

I run my own company and provide consultancy services in the areas of:

• software tools for performance prediction and design optimisation
• data engineering pipelines and data curation at scale
• implementation of machine learning algorithms
• high-performance scientific computing
