While building a magical platform solution for software localization (and rolling out some new parts of our website), we have also added to our team in Novi Sad, Serbia. Strengthening our development team and adding a market research intern will take lingohub to the next level. You will love what’s coming in the next few weeks! Say hello to three new lingohubbers:
Nemanja (LinkedIn) graduated from the Faculty of Technical Sciences in Novi Sad. Before joining lingohub, he was mainly a .NET developer – yet at the moment he is falling in love with Rails. He likes traveling, swimming and hanging out with friends. He has two dogs and now lives in Belgrade with his girlfriend.
Danijel (LinkedIn) has a background in network security, software integration, as well as SOA and worked on a number of software projects, for example in Java, JSP, JQuery and XML. He has also worked on video platforms and in sensor integration. His previous companies include EventGnosis, SeeYouLink, tv1.com, and azonde.com
In his free time he likes attending rock or jazz concerts and trips to the Adriatic see. His current professional goal is to build software that enables people to achieve higher quality performance in their professional and personal lives.
Jovana (LinkedIn) studied marketing at University of Novi Sad, and previously worked in CRM at Vip mobile and BEST (Board of European Students of Technology) where she is part of the supervisory board’s team. Jovana is currently pursuing a double degree at Skoda University in the Czech Republic, from where she is currently working from. Her studies program has also led her to Austria where she is enrolled in Global Sales and Marketing Master program at University of Applied Sciences.
Jovana’s goal for the next five years is to speak German and Spanish, before she goes on to pursue a PhD. She loves psychology, yoga and movies, her guiding quote is:
“If you never venture outside the box, you will probably not be creative. But if you never get inside the box, you will certainly be stupid.” (Christopher Peterson, psychologist)
This weekend, with a sense of achievement, we took a train home from our new development office in Novi Sad, Serbia. When I first saw the office, I knew a lot of work had to be done before we would call it a ‘real’ lingohub office. However, with the help from friends we were able to officially open the office on November 1st, and now it is a comfortable and creative place for our dev team to work from.
Markus and I have spent the last week there together with our developers (we’ve previously introduced Djorde and Marko in our blog) working on new features to be rolled out soon. It feels really great working together with our new lingohubbers and pushing out features. By the way, we will cover those new features in our next round-up post, stay tuned for that.
If you are ever in Novi Sad (the second largest city in Serbia) and you want to know more about lingohub or how it is to be a lingohubber: stop by to grab a cup of coffee and chat with us. We’ll gladly show you around and demonstrate our product.
Thank you to all our helpers and to our incredible team. We are super excited about where we will take lingohub next.
Markus (Xing) has over 14 years of experience in software engineering, including several years as development lead. He has a knack for technically challenging projects and loves to deliver state-of-the-art solutions in agile work environments.
When he’s not developing lingohub, he is an an avid drummer (Markus played in several alternative bands during the last 15 years) and co-founder of the Linz-based music label Interstellar Records.
Helmut (Xing) studied business and computer sciences at the JKU Linz, and has now been working in the software sector for eleven years. His start-up experience includes Jumio and Runtastic. He is passionate about user-centered applications that innovate and solve real-world problems.
With lingohub, he wants to change how global localization of websites and apps works, to empower translators and make roll-outs of multilingual products a true on-demand service.
Among other things, he loves windsurfing and a great barbecue, when he’s not developing lingohub or following the start-up scene, in Linz and globally, intrigued by the new dynamics that are evolving. Stay tuned for his impressions from Pioneers Festival 2012.
Another addition to our lingohub team we would like to introduce to you, is Đorđe, who also joined us from Novi Sad, Serbia. Welcome on board!
Đorđe graduated from Subotica Tech College of Applied Sciences. He is currently falling in love with Ruby and Rails, some of lingohub‘s base technologies, and is soaking up new knowledge about web development, as well as sports (basketball), education and music, when he is not programming.
