Vladimir Petrushevski Interview
‘’Backend developers build code that allows a database and an application to communicate with one another. Backend developers take care and maintain the back-end of a website, including databases, servers, apps, and they control what you don't see.’’
Vladimir is our team leader in our Skopje office and also a backend developer. Today he is celebrating one year in our Unlimited Coders team and to describe him in a few short words, he is: loyal, always patient, and a caring person. He is a team player that is a perfect fit for every good and successful team.
1. How would you describe the vibe of the company?
Unlimited coders is a place where we can learn, develop, and enjoy the work atmosphere. There’s always someone you can turn to and we have become not only a great team but also good friends.
2. What are the basic skills that one backend developer needs to have?
It’s essential to have knowledge of some technical skills such as SQL, PHP, Git, HTML, and CSS. More importantly, to be able to succeed as a backend developer one must have some soft skills such as communication skills, patience, logical reasoning, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills.
3. What does it take to design effective and efficient solutions?
The first step is to gather and define all business requirements (project specification). The next step is creation and design of software architecture. A scalable software solution that works well and is easy to understand and maintain after it has been delivered is what makes it effective.
4. What is your favorite part of your working day?
There are several things that I enjoy doing during the day: my set-up-my desk routine, chatting over a cup of coffee and taking a moment to enjoy task completion.
5. What does it take to be a leader and good co worker at the same time?
To be a good coworker and a leader simultaneously, in my opinion, one must set an example and be committed, keep a positive attitude and have an open communication with their colleagues.
6. If you have one message to your younger colleagues/developers, what it would be?
First, remember that hard works pays off. You have to be determined to succeed. Lastly, always look for a working environment where you can grow both professionally and personally.
