Tell us more about your role and duties.
I would consider myself as an engineer with more of an organizational role. I oversee development, release activities, I review implemented code, I also keep an eye on our infrastructure and repositories. Being a scrum master as well, means I have to organize the scrum team, keep development on track, spot impediments and technical issues in time and communicate inside and outside the team. My constant battle is to make sure the team has everything required to work effectively. That's pretty much it.
What do you feel are the biggest challenges in your work?
Being a technology professional, especially in our times, has many difficulties, most probably it is a challenge itself. Yet, if I have to pick one, it is to be creative and innovative, so that the result of your work has an instant positive reflection in people's everyday life or work.
Which technologies do you use in your daily work?
What does being a leader mean to you?
Being a leader can be tough. A team lead should be watchful, patient and determined at the same time. Should be a team player, able to communicate a lot and provide paths to discussions and solutions quickly. Yet, I think the best and most challenging part of being a leader is to always commit to supporting, encouraging and empathizing with the members of the team.
What from yours perspective is the most appealing part for you at ANIXE?
In a world of madness, there are two things I really enjoy and appreciate at ANIXE. Freedom and balance.
What do you like at ANIXE the most?
People. All these beautiful people and great professionals I have the pleasure to cooperate with.
How you spend your free time?
With music, books and coding, whenever I can hide from my children, my dog and my three cats.
