My story

I started falling in love with software development at 8yo and sold my first full-stack website at 14 for 1k euros to a Scottish startup (PHP backend, jQuery frontend, MySQL database).
Now I am 21 years old and I’m working on my projects:

  • An Uptime Monitoring service (UpTimeLine)
  • a website about Piedmontese mountains (Gite In Natura)
  • my blog (you’re currently on it)
  • an OTT subscription service (Usophy) which I founded at 19, that raised 300k€ from a VC and was recently mentioned in Forbes. UPDATE: I’ve now exited Usophy.
  • as well as working freelance. Among my clients is Synesthesia.

My skills

From Kernel Development or Artificial Intelligence algorithms to SEO/SEM and CRO: I’ve worked on many different things, I am a total learning addict.

Here’s what I’m experienced in, more or less in order of experience:

  • OpenCV


  • .NET
  • Assembly

I am an extreme generalist and have solved problems in many fields, very different from one another. Because of how generalist I am, I can often help companies solve issues that no single specialized professional can identify and fix.

I’ve managed teams of up to 6 people, using Scrum methodology. That was quite fun!

At 19 I raised 300k€ of funding for Usophy from LIFTT.

When I was 13 I used to play a lot of Minecraft. Using the help of youtube and Intel manuals, I built a 4-bit programmable processor using Redstone logic in Minecraft.


I speak English and Italian natively. I also speak B2 level Spanish and Romanian.

That’s all folks!

My full name is actually Cristian Pintea, but everyone just calls me Cris Pintea.
