Hi, my name is Tonny Garić.

I'm a software engineer based in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

About me

I work full-time as a Technical Consultant at GX Software—where I develop, build and implement GX Software products and support customers in improving and further developing them.

Previously, I've worked two years full-time as a Junior Software Engineer at Service2Fruit—where I was responsible for back-end development, testing, deployment and maintenance of the primary software projects.

As a software engineer, I prefer nothing more than translating functional requirements into secure, stable and infinitely scalable solutions. I'm convinced that good software makes the difference for every business—and I enjoy to combine my technical knowledge with my keen eye for detail to help build it.

When I'm not in front of my computer, I'm probably in the gym, squashing/playing tennis or in the city with friends.

Soft skills

Here are some things I'm good at.

Inquisitive

I'm a curious person and I enjoy to learn things—not only new technologies and programming languages, but also on the interpersonal level. I constantly strive to improve myself, and my team.

Versatile

I understand that goals of a company, competition and technical developments do not stand still. I think it's important to be able to quickly adapt to different teams, goal(s) or activities.

Enthusiastic

I believe you should make your passion your job. I'm really passionate about software development and I enjoy to take on new problems.

Communicative

I don't like it when SQL tells me that something is ambiguous. I realise the importance of good communication.

Team Player

I play well with others—whether it are stakeholders or developers. I believe that 1 plus 1 equals 3.

Creative

I love to draw connections between seemingly unrelated things. My creativity helps me to be able to quickly tackle problems and come up with adequate solutions.

Organised

In order to work efficiently, I believe it's important to be organised—from writing clean code, to documenting it.

Critical thinker

I think that it's necessary to be a critical thinker in order to make good software. I reason efficiently to useful truths and effective actions. From identifying your actors and their goals, to making architectural choices.
