Zacharias is a true software engineer at heart. He has been interested in computers and software ever since he was a child. After studying technical computer science, he entered the work field, where he has been for over 15 years. Still, he made a brief foray into mental health care as an activities supervisor. ‘It was nice to try something new and to get away from my screen for a while. But I soon found out that I’m really an IT professional after all.’ Back as a software engineer, he works as a freelancer for many different projects.
In his search for a new job, he ended up with Mati, team captain development at Awareways. There was an immediate match. ‘I enjoyed joining from the beginning of the project. In addition, the chosen techniques, such as event sourcing combined with domain-driven design, fit well with my skills and interests.’ Zacharias knows his way well in the dynamic work and structure of the company. ‘We work with a lot of different people and can therefore realize things very quickly.’
