For our first story of this year, we’re excited to be featuring one of our remote developers — Sergio Toro! Sergio joined us almost 2 years ago and is part of our React Frontend team. And he takes remote work to a whole new level.

Sergio, people say you work on wheels? Tell us why!

I felt jailed working in an office. I was constantly surrounded by the noise of the city. Working remotely for Kodify allows me to work on challenging problems while enjoying the nature and my mountain passions. I’ve had a custom made Camper van (Fiat Ducato)…

This week we’re excited to be featuring Matt Beukelman, our LA-based Art Director.

Matt, tell us about yourself!

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I’ve been working in the field of design and photography for 8 years. I got my start working for a record label in the EDM industry that was partnered with Insomniac and worked on album artwork and press kits, which led me to do stage visuals for concerts and festivals in my early 20s. …

For this week’s story, we’ve paired up with Anthony, our Social Media wizard behind the Kodify brands.

Anthony looking very cool.

Anthony, tell us a bit about yourself.

I’m originally from upstate New York (now in Florida). I've been managing social media for about 12 years now, mostly in the entertainment industry. My career actually started, believe it or not, thanks to MySpace (shout out to my “top friends!”). I hustled my way into managing social for Sean “Diddy” Combs for about 10 years until I joined the Kodify team in September of 2016.

As far as hobbies…I’m a HUGE sports nut. Football (American)…

Last week we sat down for a coffee (and a Halloween-inspired donut!) with Lizzie Metcalfe, our Barcelona-based UX/UI Designer. Lizzie has been with us for 2+ years. When she’s not busy designing, she’s flying. You’ve read that right — she’s a pilot too!

Ok, let’s get down to it. If you were not a Designer, you would be..?

I would probably be a professional pilot as I absolutely love taking to the skies and finding freedom above the clouds. I also really like air traffic control. …

To kick off our blog we’re passing the voice to one of our remote developers — Ian Segers. Ian is part of our JavaScript dev team. He’s Belgian, lives in Barcelona and is planning a move to Norway, where he will be surrounded by all the amazing Scandinavian nature. He tells us his Kodify story and what makes him tick. Starting with his story, we want to give you an insight into what’s it like to work at Kodify. …
