Aydin, Senior Software Engineer

What’s a typical day like for you at Lyka HQ?
My typical day at Lyka consists of three things – maintaining current technology behind our operations, developing new features, and aiding other teams in their use of the technology. I catch up with the tech team every day to share and plan, which helps me to prioritise the work for that day or the week. We also have fortnightly meetings with the team to map out the long-term direction. That said, ultimately I am in charge of what I do and how I do it at Lyka. Thus, I can mix and match a variety of front-end and back-end coding, IT and planning tasks to keep myself focused and entertained throughout the day.

What is the best part of your role?
The best part of my role is working autonomously, whilst contributing to the overall team effort and success of Lyka. I know the place that I occupy in the company and what is expected of me, and love being able to make decisions to fulfill my role to the best of my abilities.

What’s your favourite thing about working at Lyka?
The non-stop innovation. I am constantly finding the team discussing ideas, doing trials, product development, facility upgrade projects and so on. All of this is happening in collaboration with team members, and the management is always open-minded and invite everyone to share their views and opinions.

What dog breed would you be?
A Jack Russell. They don’t have big claims for their size or sound, but that’s only until it’s action time. That being said, my favourite breed is a Caucasian Shepherd Dog.

Any tips for people wanting to join Team Lyka?
If you are interviewing for a role at Lyka, put forward what you genuinely enjoy doing. Lyka combines a wide variety of people from all walks of life and corners of the world. And what makes Lyka such a great place to thrive is that the uniqueness of every person is appreciated
