Vlad Muresan decided to put his good ol' friend and colleague to work and he challenged Adrian Salamon to be this week's mindit chats sensation!
Let's have a look at how our chat with Adrian went.
mindit.io is an organization that checks all the right boxes when it comes to delivering a product that the customers use with joy.
It’s the kind of team that would provide a bright future for your hard work and determination.
Also, if you are willing to put in extra work to pivot your career to support, development, or operations, mindit.io can make that happen for you!
While working here I got to deepen my expertise in microservices architectural principle, development, and testing of such applications while prioritizing performance, scalability, and maintainability in an environment of highly motivated and skilled teammates.
I also managed to pick up some neat tricks with Spring Boot and SQL that improved my development performance significantly.
We try to keep our stack as up-to-date as possible and although upgrading an existing project is not a painless process, the benefits of playing around with cutting-edge tech are always worth it and satisfying.
The mindit.io community is kind and skilled and there’s constant learning and improvement going on wherever you look. That's how you know you're in the right place.
This will sound odd but the ideal day at work for me would start with some unexpected problem that would require the attention of the whole dev team to try and fix it.
During this time, we all present different techniques, perspectives, and potential solutions that we explore and discuss with each other, and eventually someone comes up with the right solution that makes the problem go away.
This would be ideal for me because, at the end of a day like this, we all become slightly better engineers while also growing slightly closer as a team.
I would say that my team is best described as a dedicated one. With enthusiastic people who are always eager to lend their expertise whenever necessary to anyone in need.
I’m fortunate to work with such a kind and open-minded crew.
For me, the work-life balance, and the ability to work fully remotely from anywhere you see fit suits me quite nicely and I feel like it accelerated my career significantly.
Also, the hardware equipment provided is quite powerful and up-to-date.
If you’re up for using cutting-edge technologies for solving challenging problems while being surrounded by a kind and skilled community that has your back, mindit.io is the right place for you.
There’s always something new to learn here and your career will advance rapidly because of it.
Take a look at our OPEN ROLES, and apply today! There’s always room for cool and talented people at mindit.io! Trust me, I know them!
If I were to pick another career, I think psychology would be the next best thing for me since I find debugging programs quite enjoyable and assume debugging humans would scratch the same itch so to speak.
Also, I’m doing a lot of technical thinking at work. During my free time, I try to explore more subjective or humanistic ways of thinking to keep an open mind and decrease thinking biases.
I like to read whenever I find the time, some great books I picked lately would be Dealers of Lightning and Where Wizards stay up late which are great origin stories for the technologies that everyone uses daily for either work or leisure.
Also, The Fall by Albert Camus and The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoevsky are great choices if you’re in the mood for some introspection.
I enjoyed watching The Grand Budapest Hotel and Whiplash.
And in my spare time, I also enjoy going on long walks, running outdoors, and listening to old records.
I would like to tag Ailin Ismail to thank her for providing me with the chance to meet this great community. So, Ailin, TAG, you’re it!
