Working with “old buddies” at our Crustlab office keeps me motivated and happy.
I have been creating mobile applications for iOS for almost 5 years. I started right after high school. I wanted to act, develop and implement interesting projects, instead of being passive and studying and waiting for life to turn out.
Then I set the goal of creating two applications (I had two ideas) within 6 months. I started from scratch and achieved this goal in 50%. I wrote one app - a simple reminder because I didn't like the native one in iOS. In the meantime I started my first job as an iOS developer.
At that time I was working as an iOS developer in another company. I was relatively satisfied and I wasn't looking for a new job. Then Adam (CEO of CrustLab) found me on the web and we got in touch. My attention was drawn to the fact that his message was not at all like a recruiter's message, more like an old friend's.
I realized that this bit was lacking in the office where I used to work. I decided to take a risk and change - to this day it is probably the atmosphere of working with "old buddies" that makes me not want to leave CrustLab.
Being serious for a team portrait 😅
In my career, I have created +20 applications, from the simplest ones describing a timely event, through Facebook copies, training applications, crypto banking, to betting applications.
Sportech is the largest and most complex application, without a doubt, not only for me but for the whole CrustLab's software development team and I am most proud of this project.
As I said, the atmosphere of working with friends, a super flat structure, absolute honesty and a very sane attitude to criticism without beating around the bush.
It sounds pathetic, but practically my whole life is closely related to iOS development. Finishing work for CrustLab, I sit down to do my own projects. I don’t think a month passes without me working on my own projects. So the biggest goal/dream is to create my own iOS application with millions of users!
When I'm not working, I try to travel as much as I can. Due to the cultural differences, the most interesting place I have visited so far is Sri Lanka. I liked it so much that I plan a longer stay, this time in Thailand/Vietnam, as soon as the situation in the world stabilizes.
In addition, I try to visit all major Polish cities, spending the weekend in them, so far I have visited ten out of twenty of the biggest ones. I'm really into basketball so in my spare time I'm trying to grab a ball and play a bit. I meet my family and friends, and from time to time I try to show up at the gym.
Physical activity is a must to relieve the long hours spent at the computer writing code. However, if I am too tired or simply don't feel like it, I just play games and rest. In my spare time, I'm also a stock market newbie trying to find the best options.
Visiting Sri Lanka was fascinating due to the vast cultural differences to Poland.
Even though I have read a lot of books, I don't have one that would change my life. If I had to point out the one that I remember the most, it would be a series of novels about Mordimer Madderdin by Polish writer Jacek Piekara.
I try to learn something new from each failure.
I am not the type of person who has any idols, rather I try to observe their best qualities in others. If I had to point to anyone, it would be Kobe Bryant as a model of self-control and ruthless pursuit of goals. So to answer the question, if I could spend the day with Kobe Bryant, we'd probably be playing basketball all day together.
I would definitely be a stockbroker. Playing the stock market is my hobby, which I have been doing for some time, not without success. I like this element of risk and satisfaction when the shares you buy record an increase in value.
