We are delighted to announce that we have yet another new team member. Andrei Patriciu is joining the team based in Berlin as our latest Senior Frontend Developer. In order to introduce him properly, we've asked him a few questions:
#1: What was your first job?
My first job, right after university, was a programmer in a very small company that was installing flat heating centrals. My tasks were: to write a salary calculation software, to make coffee for the boss and to vacuum the office. I failed miserably at the last two.
#2: Have you ever met anyone famous?
Once I was quite close to Ian Anderson from Jethro Tull. I don’t think he noticed me but I felt like we shared a pint :))
#3: What are you reading right now?
I recently started to read Isaac Asimov’s “Forward the Foundation”.
#4: If you could pick up a new skill in an instant what would it be?
I would love to be able to play a musical instrument.
#5: Who’s someone you really admire?
I really admire and love Arrow, my dear Tosa Inu friend <3.
#6: What’s your favorite place you’ve ever visited?
#7: Seen anything lately that made you smile?
Felix (our Senior Software Engineer) missing a very short hit on the mini-golf field :))
#8: Why did you decide to join EyeQuant?
There were a couple of reasons:
- I really liked the code challenge that I had to take during the interview process
- I liked the idea of working on something around the Artificial Neural Networks (which I worked with in some university research project back in the 90's),
- I liked the product. I found it as being quite cool and I saw a future in it
- Most importantly, I really enjoyed the culture and atmosphere the team have built here at EyeQuant. There is a familiarity thing that sometimes goes along with people with a common passion and shared goals.
