I am a passionate and enthusiastic software developer. I am always looking to expand my knowledge and experience with the goal of creating useful and user-friendly software. Through my studies and my work experiences I have acquired a notable knowledge in the field.
My project management skills enable me to leverage best practices to consistently meet even the most aggressive of timelines. I'm not afraid of challenges, on the contrary, I think of them as a good source of motivation. I think on my feet and adapt easily to change.
I have excellent communication skills and I work well with others, as part of a team. I am very comfortable speaking before crowds or giving lectures.
I'm not currently seeking employment but feel free to drop me a line, I'll do my best to respond.
I think outside the box, I'm a good problem-solver and my diversified skill set makes me an excellent candidate as a Full-Stack developer or a great asset as a Back-End or Front-End developer. I'm a fast learner, versatile, and I can easily adapt to any platform or architecture.

In June 2016, I completed a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) at the University of Montreal with a field of study including E-commerce management and applied computer sciences. I am proud to say that I completed my computer science classes on the honor roll with a stunning 4.3GPA. During my tenure as a student, I have also attended classes in management, psychology, communication and marketing.
Other than my academic and work experience I have freelanced during the past years for multiple projects. I ran part-time a website design company that taught me how to deal with customers and estimate projects. It mostly consisted of WordPress implementations with custom themes and custom plugins as well as Search Engine Optimization, AdWords campaigns, and Analytics landing pages. Most of my customers were self-employed professionals or small businesses.

Undergrad Teacher Assistant
January 2014 - April 2016
The job consisted of giving a two hours practical class following the teacher's theory class. My role was also to help the students with the homework and answer their questions trough emails or on the forum. It was also my responsibility to grade the software the students would submit as homework and give them recommendations on how to improve the quality of the code. These requirements forced me to remain updated with new technologies and better understand and debug faulty code. It also improved my ability to give lectures and to talk to a crowd.

Alexandru was my colleague in Computer science teaching assistance in the University of Montreal. I can say he was the best! IT is more than expertise for him, it's his passion!
When we worked together in the graduate course of e-commerce technologies for students of HEC, I discovered his skills for audience talks. He is determined, clear and go to the point. I should also highlight his capacities of problems fixing. I highly recommend him, he will never let you down!
Alexandru est une personne dotée d'un grand sens de la débrouillardise et d'un esprit vif très remarquable, il est appréciable de travailler avec lui.
...his dedication and high standards in completing whaterver was required to succeed were remarkable. Mr. Ghiban is a very driven and hard-working person of whom I think highly.
