Meet the DeepStream team! In this series of blog posts, we’ll be featuring the team that makes DeepStream happen. Next is one of our most recent recruits, software engineer Bogdan Brezuica, who works remotely from Bucharest, Romania.
When did you join DeepStream?
Just one month ago.
What was your first impression of the company?
The people are awesome and professional, I felt welcomed. Also, I was impressed with the technical side of the app. I guess I can really say small team, big impact!
In one sentence, what’s your job right now?
Developing cool, new features and fixing old, unwanted features – or, how others prefer calling them, bugs.
What does your typical day look like?
It starts with some morning exercises routine and a short meditation session to get the day started, then I usually have some breakfast and a cup of coffee. After that, I sometimes do some quick chores or check the news or waste some time on Twitter (I save a lot of time by working remotely), and then I start working. My work day consists mostly of discussing features and implementing them in code. Oh, and I ask quite a lot of questions. I usually do a quick workout in the afternoon to get energized for the rest of the day. In the evenings I prefer spending time with my wife, hanging out with friends, reading a book or watching a movie.
What music do you listen to when you work?
I guess it depends on my mood and the type of work I’m doing at that moment. My music tastes are quite diverse, from electronic music to soft rock to reggae to hip-hop etc.
What’s the best thing about working at DeepStream?
Having a lot of things to learn and great people to learn from.
What are you currently reading or watching?
I’m reading Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion by Robert Cialdini and I’m watching Modern family (which is hilarious, by the way).
What’s your favourite place in Bucharest?
I think my favourite place in Bucharest is Calea Victoriei (translates to Victory Street). There are lots of beautiful buildings, museums and restaurants around. It’s probably the most cultural-rich area of the city.
