Hey! It’s good to catch up because we have some pretty exciting news to share with you. We hope that you’ve managed to find a way to stay cool during the heatwave. We’ve managed to find one way to fight the heatwave: jumping into our Belgrade pool! We use every opportunity to cool down, whenever we have some time off.
Symphony welcomed two new team members last week. Adnan joined our Sarajevo office as a software engineer and Alex came over from San Francisco to complete an internship at our Sarajevo office.
There would only be one title for Adnan’s life if it was a movie and that would be ‘The Matrix’; although, growing up his favorite TV show was Mighty Mouse. The thing he likes most about his job is the people he works with. As he says, they are the one who push him to be a better person in every way.
Alex recently graduated from Stanford where he obtained his MBA. Over the past couple of years, he worked at a Google Glass startup in San Francisco and the management consulting company McKinsey in Silicon Valley. Alex enjoys beach volleyball, disc golf and exploring national parks in his free time.
