Q: Can you describe a usual workday as a Principal Performance Engineer?
Nikola: My day can be very different, depending on whether I work on a customer issue or on a regular task. Customer issues usually require my full attention and a quick and effective solution. Regular tasks may include (but are not limited to) the development of new performance features, fixing non-urgent performance issues, optimizing build pipelines etc. Generally, my ultimate goal is to improve the efficiency of both, the product and the development process.
Q: In your current role is there something you are most proud of?
Q: How would you describe the culture at Elastic Path?
Nikola:In two words, the people and culture. However, the culture overall at Elastic Path is unique, and simply amazing. There is so much collaboration between teams, the people are friendly, and willing to help at any possible moment.
Q: Thinking back from when you first joined Elastic Path, what led you to join the company?
Nikola: I came across Elastic Path when looking for jobs before moving to Canada. I have had experience working in the eCommerce area before, and Elastic Path stood out to me. The culture and the job description aligned with everything I was looking for, which is what caused me to apply and join the company!
Q: If you had to say to someone that was considering on applying, what would you say?
Nikola: Elastic Path is a great company to work for, and it is very rewarding, so I recommend applying. I also enjoy how we can further our skills in our role, and take professional development courses with our allowance to learn new things.
