What's your role at Genflow?
As a Full Stack Developer, creating Internal Software to manage the company's content, I develop and maintain our software infrastructure.

What were you doing prior to Genflow?
My previous company was a development agency, where we created web applications, fixed existing ones, and integrated them with third party systems. More recently, I worked on a big project checking criminal records (DB, DBS checks application).

How did you land this role?
I started working as a Junior Developer in Albania. Then I decided to move to the UK and started working for a company in London. After one year, I decided to find new opportunities and a recruiter shared Genflow's amazing work and client base with me. After completing all the steps of the interview, sharing my skillset and experience, I was offered the position.

The highlight of your time at Genflow so far?
I would say, building Internal Management Software which is used by the whole company. I have also worked on the CMS that serves all our apps. Our CMS is very specific, used in such cases as editing exercise workouts.
