Today, I can help.

The decision to start working at GFT, which I made over 3 years ago, was the most difficult one in my career. After 10 years of working at interactive agencies - creating websites, mailings and simple applications - I decided to prove myself in the “corporate world". The interview didn't go as well as I had imagined, but it did the trick! My new colleagues were quick to give me an opportunity to fill in the knowledge gaps.

Standing at the technological crossroads, I decided to invest in learning React, instead of the still dominant Angular. This turned out to be a bull's-eye decision, because not-so-popular tool quickly gained popularity and recognition. Due to the knowledge I had built, and the growing need to pass it on, I got the opportunity to conduct internal training sessions and advise in other projects. I also helped the company to get cool new projects. I made a real impact on GFT's development - and in an area that fascinated me. Soon I got the label of "React specialist" and started to think of myself not only as a developer, but also as a "technological evangelist".

In addition to my role as a developer, I am also deputy leader of the Project Management Job Family. My duties include taking care of both the technological direction in which the company is developing, as well as support and work with JavaScript developers who want to extend their skills.

From the first day of my work - or actually from the interview itself - GFT helped me in new stages of development. Today, I'm the one who can help our younger colleagues.
