1. How would you describe what you do at WORTH in one sentence?
I contribute to building and delivering products, at the quality standards that meet our stakeholders' and users' expectations.
2. What did you study, and why?
In Bucharest, I studied Finance and Banking at the Academy of Economic Studies.
In 11th grade I had a really inspiring economics teacher and I wanted to go into that direction. It felt like a good idea at the moment. I started working for a company that built financial software and they needed people with financial knowledge to test their application. This was my entry into the IT world.
3. What three words would you use to describe WORTH?
Multicultural, friendly, and inspiring.
4. What do you enjoy most about working at WORTH - and which project in particular?
I enjoy the fact that all members of the multidisciplinary teams are really involved and really try their best to deliver their project. Everybody is very open and willing to help. It is an environment where you can grow and where people want to help you thrive.
I've only worked on the NOMAD project and I have enjoyed it so far.
6. What is your proudest moment at WORTH?
The time we went live worldwide with the Visa Application Portal we built for NOMAD. It was so cool to imagine that suddenly people from all over the world could apply for their Schengen visa, using the portal we built and I tested.
7. Fun fact about you: what is the best meal you ever had?
I remember a place in Warsaw, Poland, where I was for my birthday 2 years ago. It was a Lebanese vegan restaurant called Tel Aviv, and I loved every single bite I had there. It was really amazing.
8. Bonus question, as one member of WORTH's Digital Development Zoo: if you were an animal, what would you be?
I would be a zebra, because I read that the stripes on their coat are bug repellent. And as a QA Engineer, I try to repel bugs from our code!
