Hello 👋

Anita Amini

My name is Anita Amini and I’m a Software Developer in London. I love learning, climbing and deep conversations.

I am obsessed about personal development and managing one’s own career. My mind is often preoccupied by finding the patterns common to those who excel at what they do.

I am also especially fascinated by individuals who architect original life paths for themselves.

I work at a UK-based online pharmacy startup called Echo, which delivers prescriptions free of charge. I write in the programming languages Go and Javascript. Prior to that, I was working in the blockchain space, building applications on Ethereum.
