Recommendations

  • Marius is not only knowledgable and a great teacher, but also one of the most empathetic mentors we have at Thinkful. His dedication to his students' is truly remarkable, and reflected in the fact that he holds the record for "highest rated mentor" in student survey scores, out of nearly 400. I've seen him go above and beyond for his students so many times that he's essentially raised the bar for what I expect from the other mentors on the team.

    Derek F., (Bootcamp Program Manager at Thinkful)
  • Marius is a well rounded developer with a great depth of knowledge. He cares deeply about making sure his students understand difficult concepts and has a sense of humor to boot.

    Courtney W., (Thinkful Student)
  • Marius is an incredible mentor! Given his experience, he has a great deal of insight on the different issues that students face while learning web development and offers a lot of valuable advice on real world issues that developers face. While mentoring me, I appreciated that he always maintained a healthy balance between guiding me and challenging me to learn by doing.

    Sairah A., (Project Manager)
  • Marius is very skilful in building responsive user interfaces. He has enough experience and skills to correctly identify the appropriate UI technology and tools to be used in different situations. Marius possesses a flexible approach in identifying and implementing the optimum solution within available project resources and constraints.

    Unmesh M., (Expert Solutions Architect)
  • Marius was brought in for a specific project here at RAPP as a contractor. It was a aggressive timeline and required working with other contractors/team members during the project. Marius did a great job in the front-end development of the project and showed commitment outside of normal hours to complete the work.

    Sam S., (Digital Manager)
  • Marius did an exceptional job on projects that we worked together on. Passionate, great and creative co-worker. Detail oriented, intelligent, deadline oriented and broad-minded employee; has vast knowledge and is thorough. Thanks to interpersonal skills, Marius has great relations with both the co-workers and directors. Is able to work in a fast-paced environment. Highly recommended.

    Alexian G., (Marketing Director)
  • I had the pleasure to work with Marius on the Optimus Portugal (part of Orange Group) long and complex project. Marius is a great, committed flexible and always available professional with a good sense of team playing. His general knowledge is impressive and I'm happy not only to work with him again but also to recommend him to any potential employers for his skills and professionalism.

    Carmen T., (Product Manager)
  • Marius is an extremely good PHP developer having very good experience from different industries. He is also expert in all the aspects of web development which starts from the deep knowledge in client side development to core server level scripting and management. He worked with me for two big projects and successfully completed everything on time.

    Sajith A., (CTO)
  • Marius is a seasoned IT professional with a wealth of experience. He brings a mature, thorough and calm approach to his work and relates well with his colleagues. In addition, his current role required direct interaction with the customer which was always conducted in a professional manner. I have no hesitation in recommending Marius to potential employers.
