About me

Massimiliano Pesente

Massimiliano Pesente

My name is Massimiliano Pesente and I’m an italian software engineer with 10+ year experience in designing, developing, shipping, and maintaining high quality software at scale.

Currently, I am a senior software engineer at Rally, where I am helping to shape a modern one-click checkout solution that boosts conversions and increases average order value for merchants.

Prior to this, I spent six years in Everli where I led a distributed team of ten great engineers.
We tackled the challenges of delivering orders to millions of customers across different countries by building machine learning models, backend APIs, and native apps.

Over the previous 10 years, I have been involved in developing campaign sites, web apps, desktop and mobile games, Facebook and Twitter apps. I have managed for and with various companies the development of small and large projects for clients including Nike, Replay, Alfa Romeo, Fiat and Samsung.

Oh, I also like books, good food, traveling, TV series, and product design... not in this order.
