Igor SzwedziƄski
I am passionate about joining the client’s needs with technology and business. I like creating solutions and implementing them in practice. I feel good in the role of a product developer, product manager, project manager, Scrum Master or Product Owner. I support teams and help them to solve their problems in unusual ways. I am happy to work in an international environment. Sharing my knowledge and experience with other people has become a source of great satisfaction for me. I like people and interacting with them.
