About me

Oct 10, 2016 - 2 minute read -

My name is Dino Fizzotti.

Academically I am an electrical engineer. By day I work as a software engineer for Daemon Solutions. When the sun has set && the build is green I retire to my workshop where I enjoy working on analogue and digital electronics, as well as various software side projects.

I was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. After graduating with my M.Sc in Engineering from the University of the Witwatersrand I ended up working at Microsoft in Redmond, USA as a Software Development Engineer in Test role. It was an amazing experience and I loved my time there. After just over two years at Microsoft I returned back home to South Africa where I worked at a startup with my friends. It’s a long story, but (as with most startups) it didn’t work out. I then joined a company specialising in crafting teams of software engineers and placing them at large corporates. I learnt a lot about working in great teams of smart people. In 2019 my wife and I (and our beloved cat Ming) moved to London. New city, new job, and this is where I am at the moment.

Interests include: Making new things, taking apart old things and fixing broken things, as well as food/cooking, travel and spending time with family and friends.
