As FOEX GmbH continues to grow and hire talented new employees, we’ve started this new article series to introduce our newest staff members to our customers, partners, readers and friends. In fact, why keep all this to ourselves when Tatiana could soon be working with you!
Introducing Tatiana Bachurova, our newest addition to the team, with this 7 “Get to know you” questions:
1. Can you tell us a little bit about your background?
I come from Slovakia and I’ve decided to get this amazing life experience of moving to different country, explore it and just figure things out as they come.
I’ve got master’s degree in field of Mass Media and worked in administration, HR and marketing roles for an international retail company and other corporation that sells document solutions and services.
2. What was it about FOEX that attracted you the most?
I like the idea of working in the software development area because I can expand my experience and learn a lot. At FOEX this means to be involved in complex projects built using various technologies and discuss with people who have different backgrounds about the advantages of using our solution to built powerful web applications that also have a modern look and are user-friendly. That is definitely exciting. Effectiveness is the key in modern times.
3. Was there a project or initiative in your career that sticks out the most?
During university I’ve interned for a non-profit organization in Bratislava and witnessed how innovative ideas (or even simple projects) can help people to improve quality of life – how children from marginalized families and parts of society can achieve things they may not have thought possible before. This experience also taught me to be more appreciative for my life and all amazing things and possibilities that I have.
4. Where do you envision spending your 3 months sabbatical?
1 month travelling through India, 1 month backpacking in Australia and New Zealand and 1 month of travelling from the East coast to the West Coast of USA. I would have a blast.
5. What super power would you like to have?
From time to time I have this kind of conversation with my friend and we choose our super powers. They change, but my top choices are healing so I could help others and the second would be the possibility to read people’s minds. It’s hard for me to choose one, they’re both winners.
6. How do you spend your leisure time? Do you have any hobbies?
Last couple of months I’ve spend my free time by getting to know beautiful Vienna better and in future I’d like to pick up yoga classes and also German language classes.
7. Is there a book that you would recommend to others?
I would definitely recommend The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari about the character development by Robin Sharma and also Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki about financial literacy and possibilities of reaching financial independence. Those 2 couldn’t be more different, but they complement each other and help improve reader’s personality in both, spiritual and pragmatical way.
We’re excited to have Tatiana Bachurova as part of our team and look forward to watching her continued development at FOEX!
