Peter Novak

Head of the Magento Development team

My story

The world of computers is my world. I love technology, but I also enjoy working with people. After spending years as a passionate programmer, obtaining an MA in computer science and inevitably spending some time searching for myself, I realised that I am most fulfilled by managing people working on development projects. It is for this reason that my career path has led me from managing small-scale projects to being in charge of some really big stuff. This way, I came to the conclusion that bigger isn’t necessarily better and that environments with less people are the ones enabling you to really develop your creative potential. When a message from Optiweb popped up in my Linkedin Inbox, I knew exactly what my next career step would be.

Everything is possible. Where there's a will, there's a way.
