The ShareIn team has grown quickly over the last couple of years. It’s our amazing people that make the magic happen. In our meet the team section we aim to tell you a little more about the people behind the scenes. This week we talked to Cristina Apostu.
Who are you?
Hi, I’m Cristina and I’m one of the 3 female Romanian developers at ShareIn. I came to Edinburgh from Romania 4 years ago with my then-boyfriend (now husband) looking to work in a multicultural and more professional environment, and also to live in a city that was more beautiful and less busy than Bucharest. My husband and I still both think it was the best decision!
I’m a self-taught developer with over 3 years of working experience in this field. After getting my Bachelor and Master degrees in public management, I decided to challenge myself and do something more exciting, so I followed my passion for web and product development.
What do you do at ShareIn?
At ShareIn I’m working as a Frontend Developer transposing our clients’ designs into real, pretty, responsive, and easy to use white label crowdfunding websites. My day to day job involves liaising with both the Backend Development and Client Support teams, as well as with ShareIn’s in-house designer.
What is ShareIn’s approach to Frontend development?
In the continuously fast-changing industry that is web development, we are always trying to keep up to date with the latest Frontend trends, using new technologies and best practices to build accessible websites for our clients. In a few words, I would define our approach to Frontend Development as one defined by simplicity, consistency, accessibility, productivity, and efficiency.
What’s something you would like to tell people about ShareIn that perhaps they don’t know?
ShareIn as a company takes seriously the importance of diversity and multiculturality, and that was one of the things that attracted me when I first joined. Our team represents 13 different nationalities and half of the development team are women!
ShareIn’s development team has grown rapidly in the last 18 months, and is made up of Frontend developers, fullstack developers, and devops engineers. And we’re always looking for great people to join our team!
Tell us an interesting fact about you?
Soon after joining ShareIn earlier this year, I found out that I was expecting my first baby. I very soon realised how lucky I was to be part of this amazing team who has supported me from the beginning with this major change in life conditions. Now the whole team is looking forward to meeting the first ShareIn Baby, who should be here this Christmas!
