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".
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.
