He is a backend software engineer at HackSoft, who also keeps an active lifestyle. πŸƒ Let's learn more about him below πŸ‘‡

Can you tell us more about yourself?

Hello, my name is Dimitar Todorov. πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ

I am from Petrich, a relatively small city near two borders in Southwestern Bulgaria. I currently work as a backend software engineer at HackSoft. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

What are you working on and for how long?

My career in the IT sector began in the summer of 2022, when I started as a backend intern at HackSoft.

Now, I have moved up to being a permanent backend engineer at the company and I've been enjoying it ever since. πŸ™Œ

What languages have you been using so far?

I began my career working with Python and Django, and then, after some time, moved on to JavaScript and React.

Currently, I am working with PHP using Laravel and JavaScript via Vue.

Why did you decide to join HackSoft?

I received an internship offer from the company, after applying for a backend role. The tech stack that the folks at HackSoft used was right up my alley and I decided to accept it.

This turned out to be the best move I've ever made for my professional advancement. πŸ™Œ

What are your hobbies/interests?

Programming has always been a pleasure for me, and I haven't experienced a single dull day at work for the second year in a row!

But I also enjoy an active lifestyle, exercises, nature hikes, and have just regained my love of reading. πŸžοΈπŸ“š

What is something your colleagues don't know about you?

I trained karate for eight years and boxed for three more. πŸ₯‹πŸ₯Š

Do you have a morning routine? What do you do before work?

When I wake up and after I brush my teeth, I either go for a cross-country run in the park or go to the gym, depending on the weather. πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

Afterwards, I feel full with energy and ready to start the work day. πŸ’ͺ

What's the most important piece of advice you would like to pass to the junior developers?

It is crucial to highlight the importance of proactive communication, cultivating a collaborative atmosphere in the workplace. πŸ—£ Be open to ask questions, share ideas and discuss the struggles️ you may face.

Moreover, dedicating a few hours a day for reading will help you in the long-run, as staying updated with industry trends and best practices is essential for personal and professional development. πŸ“–

Lastly, there is no substitute for the invaluable experience gained from spending countless hours in coding, perfecting one's skills. πŸ’»

How do you drink your coffee?

"Double, short and black." πŸ€β˜•

What do you like most at HackSoft?

What makes HackSoft truly stand out for me is the perfect blend of a vibrant work atmosphere, friendly colleagues, and a company culture that prioritizes personal growth.

Unlike rigid growth charts imposed by bureaucrats, HackSoft cultivates an environment where progress is not limited to predefined roles, but rather a testament to individual accomplishments and advancement. It's a workplace that appreciates and supports each person's unique journey. 🌟
