Last week, CrewFire welcomed our newest team member, Stefan! 🥳

We are extremely excited to have him officially onboarded and for him to help us keep building CrewFire to be the most powerful brand ambassador/influencer program tool on the market.

We wanted to introduce you to Stefan, let you know what he will be doing with CrewFire, and a bit about his work experience.

We asked him some simple questions so you can all get acquainted.

We will let Stefan take it from here!

What's Stefan's Role at CrewFire?

Stefan will be joining our dev team alongside CrewFire's CTO, Frederic Tulsidin. Together, they will be working on developing CrewFire and bringing CrewFire customers loads of new features.

Stefan will be working as a full-spec developer in both front-end and back-end development.

Stefan's Experience and Education

Stefan started coding when he was 16 and has been programming for 7 years. Around the same time, he started his own company and worked as a freelancer, working for a variety of different clients. He started with functional languages and worked with several companies based in the U.S. and Europe.

He started learning Elixir then moved on to JavaScript, which provided him with more opportunities for work.

He loves working with JavaScript because you get results quickly, can easily gain customer feedback, and build things fast.

He studied at University and found that what he missed from being self-taught, he filled in at University.

What Excites Stefan Most about Working at CrewFire?

Stefan is excited about working with a team that is open to suggestions and improvements. He has also enjoyed the warm welcome the team has given him (we're happy to hear it!)

Stefan said that he appreciates that the product is polished and the codebase is modern. CrewFire uses best practices for reacting and backend. He said he enjoys that the product uses modern concepts and it's fun to build.

The team also does proper code reviews and code testing, which is a plus.

Three Fun Facts about Stefan

He is from Serbia, born and raised, and is currently living in Belgrade.

Three fun facts about Stefan include:

  • He used to be a drummer and is passionate about music
  • He likes participating in game jams
  • He loves to learn new languages, both programming and spoken
