While all of the Cube crew get along splendidly, we LOVE whenever a Nube joins our flock! It means our team is growing, we’re getting more experience, and a whole new person to induct into our ranks. And even more exciting, our team has grown by leaps and bounds in the last year, so there have been a record-breaking amount of newcomers to join the agency.
Though we aren’t all back in the office to meet and greet our newest colleague IRL, there’s been a new Cube to join our crew. We pulled out all of the onboarding stops to give them the warmest welcome (virtually).
Without further ado, I’d like to introduce Tatiana!
Hi there, I’m Tatiana! An enthusiastic IT professional. I have been interested in IT since I was 12, and my Dad gifted me with my first computer. Since that day, I was hooked, and quickly became the person that helps my friends and family with all of their computer or phone issues.
I was born and raised in Lithuania, where I started working towards my degree in Computer Science. Which led me here, to Bournemouth, where I finished it and decided to settle down. I have worked in retail management, and web design. Now, 1 husband and 2 beautiful children later, and I couldn’t be happier at the journey life has taken me on.
The latest being my new job at 3 Sided Cube!
What is your role at 3 Sided Cube?
I am a part of the testing team which means that my role is to ensure the quality of the development that is going through the production team. The main reason we have a testing team is so we can provide the best apps for our clients so they are confident they are getting the absolute best product!
Any nicknames we should know about?!
Many call me Tanya as it’s the short version of Tatiana.
How did you get into tech?
Honestly, once my Dad bought me a computer, there was no going back. It inspired a love of technology that has never wavered since being a young, curious girl in Lithuania.
What was your first impression of the agency?
My first impression was just this immediate feeling that I was a part of something special. That even though I have only just begun, I am right where I belong. It’s nothing but positive vibes and every more positive, great people. And that impression is just from my initial, virtual start. I cannot wait to be in the bright, open office one day soon (hopefully)!
The values and ethos align with my own, so I really cannot imagine a better fit for a job. It is my passion to make the world a better place for my girls, and I know that 3 Sided Cube is constantly working at that lofty goal.
What was your aspiration to work in Tech For Good?
Something that was important to me, was working a job that I was proud of. Not just something to pay the bills and do my time 9 to 5. I wanted to be a part of a company making an actual difference.
When I came across the job posting for Cube, I couldn’t believe my luck. A company working tirelessly to make a difference. I wanted to be a part of that! No matter what project I work on, we are all fighting natural disasters, finding solutions for the plastic crisis or getting record blood donations in a pandemic, it is exhilarating being part of the process.
What are some goals you want to meet at Cube?
I firmly believe in continuous growing and learning. You can never know and do everything, so enjoy the process of getting more experience and knowledge under my belt! In the future, I would love to see myself moving into automation testing. To be able to bring my knowledge from 3 Sided Cube into a management role in that sector would be the ultimate goal.
What do you do for fun when you aren't changing the world at Cube?
You can find me looking for the perfect wave. The wind and sea in Bournemouth is what brought me here, and made me decide to never leave! My husband and I came here to learn English, and now all these years later, our English is great and we have settled into a place we absolutely love.
Windsurfing is a favourite pastime of mine! My family does it together, and it’s become so much more than a hobby, but more of a lifestyle for us!
If you were an app, what would it be/do?
Would probably be an app for elderly people to help teach them how to use apps and tech, in a way that is straightforward and simple. I visualise it as something that would walk through the process of using modern technology in a way that doesn’t make them feel lost or overwhelmed. But empowered and educated when they work through various learnings on the app!
Last but not least, what is your HHH (happy half hour) drink of choice?
Probably a glass of white wine. The best way to wrap up the week is with a cheeky Chardonnay!
It was so great getting to know Tatiana a bit better! Keep your eyes peeled on this space to meet more Cubes, we’ve had a busy Summer recruiting!
