.NET developer Sergey Samoylenko Video Feedback to RedwerkOn October 11, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
How long did you work for Redwerk? I worked for Redwerk for 3 years, from 2011 to 2014. What is the most vivid memory of Redwerk? A joint business trip to New York. What did you like most about your work? In my work, I liked the most autonomy, a flexible schedule, direct communication with the client, the opportunity to participate in the development of technical processes, in the customization of the project architecture. Well, it depends more on what project you are working on. I also like the location of the office: the office is very comfortable, the uptown view opens from the windows, everything is at hand. What did Redwerk teach you? A lot in terms of technology. When I came here, I switched completely to a new technology stack. I deepened my English because I had direct communication with the clients so I immediately had to communicate. How did it happen that you moved to the USA? Our customer from New York was looking for people for full-time in-house employment. And before I came one guy had moved there, he had been working there for some time already and they also suggested that I move. Konstantine was not against it, on the contrary, he contributed to this. And so I moved and work there. Are the processes in the current company very different from the processes in Redwerk? I am much closer to the customers, to the clients of our project, and have to communicate with them, have to communicate directly with their technical support. Here there is much more communication. While I worked for Redwerk, I could focus only on coding. On the one hand, I am now lacking the opportunity to work, write code, not so much time for that now. Communication takes a lot of time. Professional culture: Redwerk VS the USA company? Redwerk had more team buildings, some joint events than the current company has. I think it depends more on the company size and it varies from company to company regardless of country. Our company is very small now. There is a lot of work. We don’t have time for any team building activities, any joint events. And here we had them regularly. Have you ever thought about coming back to Ukraine, to Redwerk? Yes, yes, I have such thoughts. And maybe they will someday come true Was there something (skill, process) that you had learned at Redwerk and then you managed to foster it in your new company? Yes, I learned new technologies here when I came to Redwerk and was able to put it into practice in the company. What is your overall impression of Redwerk? Let me think it over. Five years have gone. At that time it was the atmosphere of kinda family coziness, mutual assistance, reciprocity, continued progress, new technologies, new projects, some kind of cheerful spirit.
