Developers Adrian and Valeria introduce themselves

At Best4u we are proud of our employees. That’s why we introduce two of our colleagues every month. This month it’s time to meet Magento developer Adrian and front-end developer Valeria!

Adrian Tilica (Magento developer)

How was your first day at Best4u? Do you remember that day?
“Yes, I remember! It was someone’s birthday and actually I’ve started my job at Best4u at that party. I didn’t know all these people, I only knew my team leader Julia. But I liked them, the atmosphere was nice, the people were friendly and open, they welcomed me and we had fun.”

What do you like the most about our company?
“The freedom. I don’t feel stress and pressure from the management for things that are not really important, as it happens in most companies – penalties for being late at the office, pressure for deadlines etc. Sometimes unexpected situations can appear in life. Here at Best4u, our work is based on personal responsibility for all projects and tasks we have to do. I know my deadlines and I don’t need someone to put me under pressure. I feel free and I reach better results.”

What’s your role in the team? Is your job different from other developer jobs?
“There are a few aspects (like Magento import and Magento slicing) that I know better than other developers do, only because I’m more experienced in these aspects. Of course there are other colleagues who have a greater experience in other aspects that I don’t manage as well as they do. We complement each other, we’re a team.”

What was your dream as a kid? What did you want to become when you grew up?
“I wanted to become an airplane pilot! I like driving big engines like trucks, liners and trains. There also was a time I wanted to become a truck driver.”

What would be the perfect destination for a holiday trip with the Best4u team?
“The Netherlands.”

If life would make you the best gift, what would it be?
“A trip around the world. I would like to see how people live in different countries and to explore their cultures and lifestyles. I love traveling.”

Valeria Melinte (front-end developer)

How was your first day at Best4u? Do you remember that day?
“It was the first of September, the first school day in our country after holidays. I remember it was a sunny day, I saw big windows in our office and a lot of light. I liked it! The atmosphere at the office was really nice. My colleagues were continuously discussing, they are really talkative! I met my teamleader and he helped me a lot to understand all I had to do. All my colleagues were really friendly, it felt like there was always somebody taking care of me.”

What is the main contribution of Best4u to your personal/professional development?
“I became more responsible. I have goals that I have to achieve. I am thankful for the trust that the management has in me, they offer me freedom to decide how a project can be developed, to choose the right solutions and tools and to do my best.”

What do you like the most about Best4u?
“The flexibility. The projects interesting and complex. I learn new things and I like to be challenged.”

What was your dream as a kid? What did you want to become when you grew up?
“I wanted to become an actress. I watched many movies and it inspired me. My uncle is an actor, I always admire his good humor, appearance and lifestyle. Later I started to learn foreign languages. I heave learned Italian, German, English and French. I never regret that I became a developer, I really like it. Even though I didn’t dream about this, I consider it’s a dream job for me!”

What principles are important for you?
“I really appreciate modesty, responsibility and honesty. I like friendly people.”

Recently we went karting. It was your first experience, but you really liked it. How did you feel?
“Well, it pushed me out of my comfort zone, and I really needed it. It was my first experience and I have discovered a lot about myself. What I liked the most wasn’t the speed, but what I didn’t know about myself was that I like to drive! I knew that one day I would have to get my drivers license, but now I think I want to have it asap!”

What describes you better?

  • Fun or seriousness
  • Salt or sweet
  • Blue or red
  • The way or the destination
  • Sun or snow
  • Speed or attention to details
  • Ideas or actions –> “Both!”
