Meet our in-house Software Engineer, Lefteris. As our ruby-on-rails expert, he doesn’t know much about people named Ruby (or trains, for that matter) but he does know a lot about website architecture and development. He’s also a bit of a melomaniac.
Where are you from?
Athens, Greece (he said proudly!)
Tell me about the item you are wearing in your photo.
What is one thing people don’t know about you?
I love watching documentaries. It’s my secret obsession since it allows me to discover worlds that I otherwise would have no insights into. I’d probably say that Virunga is one of my favorite documentaries so far.
What is your favorite thing about working at Welcome?
I love being able to experiment with a variety of technologies, methods, architectures and services. Also, I like that we have a fast turn-around from implementation to going live – that way I get to see my work assisting in the user journey immediately.
What is an experience you think visitors in Athens would enjoy?
I recommend visiting Hymettus mountain if you enjoy hiking and being outdoors. It provides a great 360 view of the city and some nature in the middle of a sprawling Athens.
What are your thoughts on travel?
I hate the ‘travel’ part of traveling…the waiting around at the airport, the turbulence from strong winds at 39K feet…but I love arriving in a new destination and really trying to experience it like a local. Tourist attractions are great but I always want to see more than just the typical spots and leave feeling like I know something about the people that live there.
