Q: What do you do at Jumio?
A: As a part of the Mobile Team, my main focus is on the quality of Jumio Mobile SDKs (iOS/Android), Plugins, Mobile Backend and all the technologies this channel offers. In addition, I contribute to Product development and overall Jumio Quality and Test Management System.
Q: What does that involve?
A: When building quality products with tons of complex logic inside and behind, there are many things that are not limited just to testing, quality assurance and automation. Usually it takes a lot of collaboration, innovation and self-starting efforts to make things work. At work I use and improve all my skills, learn a lot, and work together with the most talented people, to deliver the best solution in the RegTech field.
Q: What was Jumio’s selling point for you – What made you say “I wanna work there!”?
A: People, acceptance and opportunities. Jumio has a very unique culture and true start-up spirit, which I could only feel for real after I joined.
Best talents grow by learning a lot from failures, from sharing knowledge and never being afraid of the unknown. Jumio learns, evolves and never stops dreaming big.
Jumio’s spirit is very catchy and that was the selling point for me 🙂
Q: What are the most interesting bits of the role?
A: I truly enjoy sharing knowledge and learning, and there are plenty of opportunities to do that at Jumio. We have different communities and anyone can come up with new ideas and form a new group, like for people who are interested in astrophysics, playing board games, football or anything else. Furthermore, working with people and having all those things in common with them – isn’t it what makes jobs more exciting? Teams usually work for common ideas and goals, but those funny little things that come up during work bring more joy to work and it bonds people. After all, that’s how true team spirit grows which then drives teams to great success.
Q: What’s the secret to being good at your job?
A: Many people around the world dream about starting to do something they love. Unfortunately, that’s not always attainable for many reasons.
I strongly believe that in terms of time there is no difference if you are at work or at home, because it’s still your time. If you always dream to shape the world and do something meaningful, then you should put more meaning to what you do, value your work and respect it.
Being good at a job means a lot of things, yet if you do it with joy it just becomes simpler and more fun.
Q: How do you know when things are going really well?
A: Simple… when it’s communicated. For that, we have a lot of info channels to deliver information, updates, feedback, etc. and profession-wise, constructive feedback is always the most reliable, valuable thing you can get.
Q: How have you been able to progress your career or learn new things at Jumio?
A: At Jumio there are many opportunities for professional and personal development, as well as gaining more experience and growing with everyday work. Since I joined, I have had many projects, courses, trainings. I gained test automation experience in 4 new programming languages, learned a lot about sdk testing which is completely different from just app testing, a lot of experience for backend service testing, load testing, cyber security and moved my soft skills to a completely new level.
Q: What would you say to potential employees wanting to work at Jumio? What qualities should they have?
A: Be yourself, be honest, and be at least 80% fit for the role with true passion for growth.
