About Me

Software Developer specialized in programming and design.
My name is Matej Vanco and I was born in Slovakia. I like initiative challenges and new opportunities to create something unusual, something new to the world. I graduated from high school of animation & art and participated on many projects world-wide. With more than 9 years of programming experiences in C# and C++ I’m capable of leading advanced systems such as input/output streaming, database management, various rendering techniques (rasterizer, raytracer, raymarcher), custom compiler algorithms and more. Also I’m focused on mobile applications for iOS & Android, AR/ VR applications (HTC Vive, Oculus rift & Quest) and potential in modern technology.

I was working on many 3D & 2D animation spots & movies. I made my own 3D movie in Unity Engine called Neuro which won second place on the international animation festival in Bratislava, Slovakia. I was working on many game projects across the globe including Azulga: Star Commanders (by Szeiner Company), The God (by Struct9), Deadness (by Alien studio) and more in Unity Engine & Unreal Engine. I’m founder of Struct9 studio.

In the meantime I create universal software extensions & plugins for Unity Engine and selling them on Unity Assets Store. I’ve made my own 2D engine called Poly Engine written in C# from scratch. In my free time I like to travel, I do martial art, I love skiing, I make my own music.

In the future I would like to achieve many goals including new technology investment & development of educational applications. The most important to me is making new opportunities to anyone who is interested in self-evolving and moving forward.
