Team Member Spotlight
Ariel Juodziukynas, Senior Software Engineer
OmbuLabs: Why did you decide to become a developer?
Ariel: When I was a kid I loved playing video games. Growing up I started learning how to fix computers and I decided I wanted to study something related to computers after school. Then I had my first programming class and loved it since then.
OmbuLabs: What do you like most about OmbuLabs?
Ariel: I like many things:
- being a 100% remote team with people all around the world
- I learn new things every day
- I'm encouraged to propose my ideas and to try everyone in the team
- I've worked on many different projects for multiple clients
OmbuLabs: What is a personal thing you would like to share about you?
Ariel: I love music... playing, listening, learning. In my house there's always music.
OmbuLabs: What is the most interesting thing you've learned while working for us?
Ariel: I learned so much that is hard to pick just one:
- I learned to setup many CI/CD services
- I learned ReactJS
- I learned to setup and use Docker
- I learn things everyday
OmbuLabs: What do you like to do when you're not working?
Ariel: I watch online videos about anything (some random person talking about how a car works? check! another random person talking about the history of the letter H? check!). Sometimes I play video games, and (not that often) I like to play guitar and play soccer.
