  • How long have you been working for the company and how did everything start?

For about 10 months. A friend of mine gave me the idea and after meeting with Ivan Lekushev and Ivailo Ivanov, I was all in.

  • What are the biggest challenges in what you do?

Possibly the biggest challenges would be keeping up with the latest trends in the technology spectrum as well as using them in an elegant and efficient way in everyday tasks.

  • What are the most fundamental skills you should have for your current position?

Having good logical thinking, being able to think out of the box and making fast connections between object along with resourcefulness.

  • As a software developer, tell us what it is like to be one.

Its interesting. I believe this is what best describes it. Using your mind to create a project from scratch is an awesome feeling and challenge. Moreover, as a software developer, I am being challenged every day with new scenarios to be solved (some harder than others). But in the end of the day the immerse satisfaction of finding a solution to a complex problem is a very good feeling. In other words, being a developer is a constant struggle with your knowledge. Still, the victory is sweet.
