First thought of programming
I though video games were too limited and wanted to create my own.
My first webpage
I wanted to share my jokes with classmates so I created a joke page in Dreamweaver. I used only the UI and the html and code seemed total gibberish to me.
Started my first engineering job
My first job in a startup
I was and early joiner for Estonian startup called Toggl. Toggl was building a time tracker to help professionals manage their time. This was a life changing moment as I really understood how challenging and interesting software development can be. I learned fast, had many different projects and roles and was growing every day.
Starting to lead a team
As the company evolved and we hired more there was a need to have managers. I took the opportunity and never looked back. I hired new engineers and setup quarterly plans to execute our goals. It was challenging and I failed a lot but I didn't quit and kept going no matter what.
I built 12 apps in 12 months
I took on the challenge to create an app or game a month and executed it.
Started leading mutliple teams
I had the opportunity to start to lead the full engineering organisation that consists of multiple engineering teams and a QA.
