Meet the Kambrian —Agne
It’s time to meet our engineering extraordinaire from Lithuania. Learn about how Agne ended up running the final championship lap of a triathlon and her bizarre childhood career aspirations.
Where are you from?
I am from Panevėžys, Lithuania.
What’s your role at Kambr?
I have the combined roles of Scrum Master and Software Engineer, as part of the Core development team.
When did you first join Kambr?
I joined Kambr in May 2019 together with a group of my colleagues from my previous company Yieldr.
What do you love most about working at Kambr?
I love my colleagues who are all very talented, fun and motivated.
What’s the most interesting job you’ve had?
I was once a part of the support team during the Double Ultra Triathlon World Championship which takes place every summer in my hometown Panevėžys. One year, the athlete I was supporting took first place and I had an opportunity to run the last lap with him. I remember I cried when we reached the finish line.
I could only imagine how that moment would feel after swimming, cycling and running for like 20 hours and reaching the total distance of ~452 km. I’ve always thought that talented athletes and musicians have the most exciting careers.
Do you have any tips for success?
Do what you love and love what you do.
What keeps you busy outside of work?
I love being outside, being active, doing sports, meeting friends. I can’t wait until we can freely travel again and attend all the cultural events!
Which superpower would you love to have?
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a nun when I was 5. I think I liked how they dress 😃
What’s something you’ve done, but will never do again?
I will never board this kind of ship again:
What’s one thing you want to do before it’s too late?
I have never been snowboarding in the real mountains, only small hills or indoors. I have been planning to do so for each of the past 10 years and it never worked out. Hopefully this year….
What’s your most frequented airport?
Have you ever missed a flight (and why)?
I haven’t! I am really lucky with this. Even when I arrived to the airport exactly at the time my plane had to depart, the flight was delayed, and I was able to catch it!
The fact that I am never at the airport early enough hasn’t helped with me never missing a flight, so I am always in a rush.
Most memorable travel moment.
Landing in Svalbard — one of the northernmost inhabited areas. It was the most memorable and extraordinary trip I had so far. And I got to see polar bears in the wild!
Window seat or aisle seat?
Almost always window seat, although I prefer aisle in the short-haul flights.
What’s your favorite plane-related song?
I love the intro of the “I’ll Do This for You” by Puff Daddy :)
