Time to meet the Backend developer at Pseudocode, Lucija!
Why did you join Pseudocode, and what has kept you here?
First and foremost I joined Pseudocode because of the passion and inspiration that was shown by my bosses when they were speaking of different technologies and projects.
I got pleasantly surprised by how friendly and caring they were for their employees, which made me question my old company's leadership.
Growing knowledge and people is what is keeping me here. As we are an agency with different types of clients, we do broaden our perspective and approaches for each solution.
Having a great college helps me greatly in this endeavor.

What are your primary responsibilities and what does your day-to-day look like?
I'm mostly a backend developer whose job is to choose and implement solutions based on the clients’ needs.
Choosing solutions consists of reading the requirements and investigating the current codebase in order to figure out which approach to take.
Implementation is purely on developers' knowledge and understanding of a particular framework.
The key part is communication, as it allows all team members to understand the difficulties so we can decide what is the best possible solution.
What's your favorite quote, or motto?
"A future is not given to you. It is something you must take for yourself." - Nier: Automata
This resonates with me as it's a simple truth that makes me motivated to try my hardest to fulfill my wishes.
Each person must take matters into their own hands and work for their future, otherwise, regrets are sure to follow.
I would rather try and fail than never try at all because at least you can learn something by failing.
How do you spend your time outside of the office?
I am really passionate about playing video games that contain a great story and telling everybody what they are all about. Also, I like MOBAs that made me question my own sanity.
Other than indoor interests I love anything that has to do with the sea. That makes summertime my favorite time of the year and by living in Croatia I get plenty of options.
Nature being beautiful
What are 3 words to describe Pseudocode?
Flexibility is what Pseudocode does well. From options such as working from home, working hours, thinking outside of the box, etc. Pseudocode adapts to changes which helps us with continuous improvement.
Fun and relaxed work environment. Our workplace often hosts a variety of activities that bring people together and some Fridays we host hangouts where all kinds of professions are invited.
We are provided equipment, encouragement, and motivation that makes us comfortable and in turn productive.
How do you balance your career at Pseudocode and friends & family?
Some days, I might focus more on work, while other days I might have more time to pursue my hobbies or spend time with loved ones.
What helps me the most is that I find my job to be exciting because I enjoy the problem-solving aspect of it and I take pride in it.
I think not allowing one thing to take precedent over the other is a simple solution to implement.
