As a Lead Cloud and Infrastructure Engineer my duties are to ensure all our systems are running smoothly and without any disruption. With my team of excellent engineers that tackle any challenge put before them, I feel there is no task we cannot handle.
I have an opportunity to grow, learn and have fun while doing it. Everyone is open, available, and always ready to help. What I especially like is that we have the ability to develop and create solutions and make decisions. New ideas and solutions are always encouraged from anyone in the team. For me, that is what makes the job interesting, always going further. You have the freedom to build up your skills and Barrage is always there to give you the extra push with great education, internal knowledge-sharing, conferences, and certificate opportunities. The equipment is top-notch as well. :)

Working with cutting-edge technology and solutions. We are always exploring something new to simplify processes and automate the hell out of everything we can. The drive for excellence is tremendous, and that is seen in every aspect of the products we deliver.
I have gained an extra layer of knowledge about Cloud technologies and ISO standards, and probably above all, what it is like to work with a great team of young professionals.
I try to spend as much time as I can in nature. I love fishing, mushroom hunting, and all sorts of outdoor activities. But, a few months ago I became a dad, and my focus has since shifted to spending every free moment with my family. Now it’s the usual household chores and babysitting. :)
Josip spending some time in nature, mushroom hunting
A long time ago, when IT was only one of my many interests, I spent a year as an apprentice at a small tambura workshop, learning how to handcraft Croatian national music instruments. I actually made a few that sounded quite decent. :)
Since I am about an hour and a half away from the office, I combine working on-site with remote work. Even when I work from home, I am on call with my team throughout the shift so we can collaborate easily. This option allows me to spend more time with my family and friends, and occasionally go on a road trip with my family.

I learned that hard work pays off. Never lose focus on those things you love and always find time for your family and friends. Always share your knowledge, never stop evolving and learning new stuff.
Moj-posao.net. Just kidding, that was before Barrage. :) I usually read the newspapers in the morning. It’s my routine with my first coffee. Before COVID-19 I would usually read Jutarnji list and 24 sata in my local coffee shop. Nowadays, I browse local news portals and Reddit.
If it count’s as a historical event, it would definitely be the Woodstock music festival in 1969. I grew up listening to all the musicians that performed there.
I have really tried a lot of things so this is a very difficult question for me to answer. Maybe big-game fishing or scuba diving.
I’m not a big fan of modern gadgets, but if my smartphone counts, that would probably be it.
