Tomislav Bišof

Lead Frontend Engineer

Who am I?

I'm a Lead Frontend Engineer with over 8 years of experience located in The Hague, Netherlands. I have a good eye for UI design and value creativity, minimalism and providing a pleasant user experience. I like to keep my projects well-structured, clean and scalable, and always take time to critically look at past decisions and actively improve existing code.

In my role, I aim to steer product development towards good technical decisions, promote team harmony and provide an innovative mindset that helps translate ideas into prototypes and solutions. I usually participate to some degree in product management and team leadership, even though my strength is being a contributor with high productivity.

I am comfortable working and communicating in distributed teams and prefer remote-first companies.
