Alex Kotanko



With almost a decade of experience, I have been creating software solutions for people around the world. From websites to desktop applications, from brand image to SEO, I've done it all.

Web Developer & Software Engineer

Freelancing since 2016, I have developed several online platforms for small to medium sized businesses in the retail industry around the world. I have developed custom software solutions for different needs in several industries. I've done contract development work for many different companies around the world.

Having spent many years in the freelance space, I have settled down with Finnair Business Services in Tartu, Estonia. Working remotely from Tallinn, I spend my days developing solutions to solve marketing and customer data related problems.
