LOVE MY BOSS (myself!) – 4 days of 'Lego Serious Play'...
In my role I am responsible for the technical discovery, definition and delivery of custom implementations and/or third party integration for our customer's communities within a SaaS environment - primarily for new community launches or for integrating Lithium's software solutions in our clients's existing stacks.
I am also regularly involved in initiatives to improve / propose new internal processes to enhance our company's delivery model - as well as collating and providing customer feedback to internal stakeholders in the engineering department.
Leading a team of 8 developers. I am responsible for timely delivery and technical review of all the projects assigned to the team, as well as conducting regular performance reviews for the employees and helping them in progressing their careers. I work closely with the project manager to define delivery plans and controlling their execution (time/costs/scope and technical feasibility), from the requirements definition phase to post production.
In my role I also monitor the capacity of the live systems and maintain a strong relationship with our customers with frequent on site visits.
I've been one of the lead full-stack developers for several projects on the William Hill account.
My main achievement was the successful delivery of the William Hill Italia site (Casino / Sports / Bingo & Slots). The site went live in July 2011 within the first batch of new licensees (first to market). In this role I have:
- Partecipated in the software analysis throughout the entire project
- Written several technical specification documents for customers, third parties and developers
- Developed key components and assigned development tasks to other developers
- Acted as the first point of contact for change management, issue escalation and bug fixing
- Travelled frequently to meet customers and third parties
- Performed technical management for the software certification stages - ensuring that the deliverables were compliant with the regulation, and representing the company during the official tests
I worked as a full-stack developer for the William Hill account - delivering variable sized projects (back-end, front-end and third party integrations)
- Proven track record of timely deliveries and minimal bug count on my projects
- Established and maintained an excellent relationship with our customers
During my studies I have occasionally worked as a freelance writer for various websites. The topics were usually of a technical nature - for example programming guides - but I have also written video games review and other topics (such as history or science)
During my studies I have worked as a freelance Web Developer for small local companies or creating personal websites. The main technologies I have been exposed to in this role are:
- Web Frameworks (Turbogears, Django, MooTools)
- RDBMS (MySQL and PostgreSQL)
- Web servers (Apache)
- Search Engine Optimisation techniques
- Basic knowledge of Photoshop, Fireworks and Dreamweaver software
I’ve reorganized the documentation in a Java software project.
Teaching tutor in "Advanced Programming" college course (mainly C language and its network functions)
I've prepared the documentation for a web development course. This was to be taught to a group of five people from a company within the Fashion Industry in Milan. I have then ran the course on site.
The goal of the course was to provide an entry-level understanding of XHTML/CSS, W3C standars, basic design concepts, FTP clients and Dreamweaver to employees coming from a non technical background, in order to coach them and allow them to perform new duties within their roles.
I’ve realized an help desk ticket system (ASP) to maintain and assist request allocation to available technicians.

A preview of what LinkedIn members have to say about Paolo:
I had the great pleasure of working with Paolo over the last 4 years on many of the most strategic and complex projects across our portfolio. Paolo is an effective, pragmatic and creative technical architect/consultant and is equally comfortable working with peers, prospects or customers and many occasions he was praised by clients for the quality his work and the value he brought to the engagement. I came to rely on Paolo's expertise, guidance, and sense of humour over the years, and would welcome working with him in the future.
During my time at Lithium it was clear that Paolo is a respected and well-liked member of the Lithium team. It was an absolute pleasure to work with him. Paolo is personable, calm and hard-working. He is knowledgeable and an excellent mentor, especially in sharing his deep and considerable expertise of the Lithium platform.
