He’s calm, reliable, and is an aspiring chef.
But most importantly, he works at RESAAS.
This is Meet the Team - a series that will get you up close and personal with those that work at RESAAS.
Q: What is your role at RESAAS?
I’m a back-end software engineer. As a team, we design and build a robust web app that is well-tested and can scale. We’re also responsible for defending our app from evil-doers!
Q: What is your favourite part about working at RESAAS?
I love working with the team here at RESAAS, as well as the flexible culture that is present here.
Q: What has been your favourite project that you have worked on to date?
The image editor was really great. It’s a neat service that allows us to resize the agent’s images and also allows them to do it on their own. It was the first microservice that I deployed on my own with the help of the team. Despite some challenges, it was really gratifying to complete!
Q: If you had any superpower, what would it be?
Teleportation, so that I can be everywhere at once! I’m also not a fan of travelling long distances, so having teleportation would be really helpful.
Q: If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?
I would want to be an eagle so that I can soar the skies and have a bird’s eye perspective on everything. And it would help with the travelling thing!
Q: If you could trade places with any person, who would it be?
Probably Anthony Bourdain, since he gets to travel all over the place and try different foods at those places! That would be a pretty sweet deal to have.
