Kuba — can you introduce yourself to our users? 🙋🏼 Who's the guy with 6230 / 9676 passed tests for Spendee 5? 😏

Hi! I'm Jakub and at Spendee I’m responsible for the entire application testing process. 💯 So I create a kind of link between the development and you users, where I make sure that you get the application in the highest possible quality without any bugs and problems. 🐛❌ Usually when there is an error in the application, I am the one who swears the most. 🤭

In addition to working in Spendee, I am currently studying Information Technology at university. 🎓 In my free time, I like to relax with Playstation controller in my hand 🎮 and on weekends, you can usually find me in the stands in Eden (SK Slavia Praha stadium), or with friends over a well-chilled pint of beer. 🍻

What's your #myspendeestory? 👨🏼‍💻

My mission at Spendee began less than 2 years ago. At that time, I only had experience with large corporate companies. 💼 However, working in these companies did not suit me at all and I wanted to try to work in a slightly narrower group of people and with the feeling that I am not just a tiny part of a big jigsaw puzzle. 👫 At that time, I coincidentally came across Spendee, which I even used on the daily basis. 💸 At first, I didn’t even know that Spendee is a Czech company, which was quite a funny finding 😂🇨🇿 From my position, I didn’t even have to think more about working at Spendee because I really liked the whole idea and vision of the company. 👌🏼 I’ve been here for almost 2 years now. 🙏🏼 I experienced a lot of great things, but also some big problems that our users did not appreciate so much. 🤕 However, I don’t stop working and I’m looking forward to see what comes next. 🤩

You're a well-known podcasts lover — any recommendations? 🎧

If I can and don’t need to focus on other things (like work or studying to school), I like to play a podcast instead of regular music. 🎙 I’m a bit of a football fan and I have 2 favorite podcasts, which I like to listen to at the beginning of each week, when the current football round is evaluated. ⚽️ One podcast focuses on the Czech First League (Fotbal Fokus Podcast by Czech Television) and the other on the English Premier League (Angličan by Jiří Hošek), which I don’t follow so much, but I I’d love to hear what’s interesting over the past round. 👌🏼 Otherwise, I like Petr Ludwig and his Deep Talks, where I think very interesting people with great opinions are invited. 🔥 In addition to these, I like to listen to, for example, Test Guild or TED Talks Daily, but of course also others — especially when a new episode of my favourites hasn’t just been released, or the chosen topic is not so interesting as I would want. 😎

If you were a superhero, what would be your superpower⚡️

I would like to be able to relive some memories again, but by experiencing them as if it were the first time. 🔮 Watching a movie you’ve seen before, or remembering different situations that have ever happened to you is great, but experiencing it for the first time would be something that makes the situation so interesting. 😍

Do you have your favourite Custom Slack Icon? 👨🏼‍💻

I don’t have one favourite at all, but I’m a big fan of Cult of the Party Parrot!

Thanks for the interview Kuba! Is there anything you'd like to share with the Spendee family? 💸

I use the application on a daily basis at work and outside it, so I can easily relate to users. 😉 Every time a bug appears in the application, I’m the person who is probably most annoyed and disappointed from this situation. 😔 I’m trying to learn from it somehow, try to memorise these problems and verify, that they will not appear in any other future releases. 💪🏼 So that you and I can be as happy as possible. 🤜🏼🤛🏼
