Andrei has over 20 years of experience in IT, and while starting as a developer, he had the opportunity to try out different areas and roles until he found what he wanted and liked. And he likes to code.
He was involved in projects in industries like Payments, Banking, Media, and Healthcare. He now sees himself as a perennial learner, having good experience with AWS, GCP and Azure platforms. He is a certified architect in AWS and GCP, certified data engineer in Azure and GCP, and Big Data specialist in AWS.
He believes that an IT professional should always keep a reasonable hands-on capability and be actively involved in growing the team, creating customized learning paths or doing internal and external POCs.
And his secret to passing these years of pandemic gracefully? He took up fishing :)
I had the chance to have leadership roles before, and for me, that was not satisfactory enough. I always wanted to stay close to technology, to be hands-on. And that brings the most satisfaction.
