WordPress Team Lead

My story

My interest in informatics has been with me since primary school, which is why computer science studies felt like the most logical path. I gained my first working experience in the field of customer communication and marketing. I soon focused on IT organisation in companies.
In the spring of 2013, during my master’s studies, I got an opportunity to work at Optiweb and joined their team as a programmer. I’ve gained a lot of new skills and I still happily go about each project.

I look forward to each new project. It represents a challenge which I gladly accept, as well as an opportunity to gain new knowledge or solidify old ones.

What’s the biggest challenge you came across at Optiweb?

They say each beginning is difficult. That was definitely true in my case. I had little experience and I had never before used WordPress. The first few days were slow but, in the end, it was worth the effort. :)

What are the advantages of working at Optiweb?

Great atmosphere, good location and amazing teamwork. In case of problems, you can always count on people to help you. Of course, I have to mention our coffees and lunches as well. :)

What do you do when you’re not working?

I’m still a student. When I have some free time, I spend it on a basketball court or somewhere in silence where I can read a good book. Occasionally, I even feel inspired and write something myself.

 

What would you do if you weren’t a programmer?

Probably still something related to computer science, for example animation or system modelling. If I had to give up information science entirely, I would choose marketing or communications and maybe spend more time writing.
