Why did you join Tech387, and what has kept you here?

I've always been passionate to understand how things work, especially in digital and technological terms. My passion and dedication was recognised by Tech 387, who opened doors to offer me the opportunity to realise my potential and work on things I'm the most passionate about. Coupled with a friendly environment where you can grow both as a person and as a professional, Tech 387 represents the place where I can enjoy what I'm doing and where I love to be.

Enjoying a sunny day

What’s been the most memorable experience during your tenure so far at the company?

While working on the development of a job search engine, I was challenged with handling huge loads of data presented in zipped format. Since the focus was on execution time and the use of resources, downloading all data at once would not be feasible as the data would only grow in size in the future.

What happened instead is that I approached the challenge in an alternative way and wrote a separate script that processed the data in a way that it downloaded it in chunks rather than as a whole. In this way, I ended up solving the challenge in a cost-friendly and most efficient way possible, which is something that I'll always remember as I was thrilled by that result.

What advice do you have for prospective Tech387 candidates?

For anyone seeking employment at Tech 387, I can personally promise that you will be working on things that you enjoy the most. It is a community where you can grow and realise your potential, however, you must not be afraid to share your passion and aspirations with the hiring team because this is one of the most valued matters at Tech 387.

Once they fully recognize your passion, they will love you for who you are and you will love the job that most inspires you.

Do you have any hobbies, go-to weekend activities, or long-term passion projects you’re working on?

I like spending my free time in nature. Thankfully, Sarajevo is the perfect place to be for people like me. If the weather isn't good, I would then find myself binging on good movies.

Sometimes, I would even go to our offices over the weekend to focus on tasks that are due for the following week, just so I can have more time during the working week to lead the team and be more hands-on on actual projects.

Hard-working time

What do you like most about Tech387?

Coming to the company as a foreign national, I found my reception by Tech 387 as a most welcoming and heartwarming experience. I feel like I'm a member of a big family destined to do great things. What's more, is that I feel directly responsible for and satisfied by the results we are making.

The feeling of launching a software product successfully always gives me goosebumps - it's a priceless feeling that we all at the company strive for.

In your opinion, what are the hallmark traits of a great Lead Engineer?

A great Lead Engineer should be a person who is technically capable, lovable by the rest of the team, and someone who can motivate the team to do great things. I personally believe that these traits form a great technical lead who can always stand side by side with his team in both challenging and rewarding situations.
