Iz ugla Lead inženjerke: Stvaranje mobilne aplikacije za korisnike od nule

Već godinama su telefoni predominantni uređaji za online kupovinu, pretrage, upotrebu softvera i gotovo svega što vam padne na pamet. Za razliku od aplikacije za kapetane (partnere) koju smo razvili još 2017, iskustvo pretrage i bukiranja pecanja je ostalo na web-u. Logičan nastavak je bio da razvijemo mobilnu aplikaciju. Naravno, da stvari budu zanimljivije, nismo imali nijednog senior React Native inženjera da se pozabavi ovom problematikom, te smo se oslonili na staru dobru fleksibilnost. U nastavku Olga priča kako je to sve izgledalo iz Lead Engineer ugla.

Koja je veza između salpe i biznisa?

Ili: O transparentnosti kao suštini

O transparentnosti se već godinama priča na stranim IT tržištima, u svim slojevima poslovanja, na mikro i makro nivou, eksterno i interno. Reč je gotovo isključivo o transparentnosti kao pozitivnom konceptu. Ako neko želi da se predstavi kao dobra kompanija, samo je potrebno da kaže da je transparentan. “Samo”. Ostaje upitno da li to zaista i jeste?

Tako u poslednjih nekoliko meseci svi krećemo masovno da upotrebljavamo tu reč, transparentost odjednom postaje neizbežan sastojak u svim employer branding strategijama, a nije sigurno koliko nas zapravo razume njenu suštinu i koliko nas primenjuje transparentnost kao ključni model poslovanja.   

Mi (kao društvo), kao i u većini slučajeva, uhvatimo se za jedan ili dva segmenta, koji često nisu od suštinskog značaja. Tako u kontekstu transparentnosti u našem narativu dominira jedna reč – plata, i jedan koncept – objavljivanje metrika poslovanja. 

Ne želimo da pišemo kako smo mi naj i začetnici transparentnosti u Srbiji, nego da potvrdimo da je koncept transparentnost dobar kao model poslovanja i da podstaknemo druge da ga implementiraju. I opet, ne prema našem modelu, nego osluškujući svoj ekosistem.

Razvoj Karijere — Iz Četiri Zida do Team Leada

A man and a woman sitting on a boat on a sunny

Kada govorimo o tome šta je magnet koji zadržava zaposlene u kompaniji, na pamet prvo padaju vrhunska plata, odličan tim i izazovni projekti. Uglavnom se kao bitni faktori pridodaju i menadžment koji ima viziju, stabilnost kompanije, savremene tehnologije i atraktivni benefiti.

Ono što često nije dovoljno u fokusu je karijerni razvoj u kompaniji. U FishingBooker-u smatramo da je on podjednako bitan aspekt koji jedna kompanija treba da pruži. Jasna trajektorija po kojoj zaposleni može da se kreće i razvija je u direktnoj korelaciji sa njegovim zadovoljstvom — samim tim i sa vremenom koje će provesti u firmi.

Čedo, porodični čovek i Lead Engineer u FishingBooker-u

Menjanje posla je jedan od stresnijih događaja u životu, pogotovo ako imate malo dete kod kuće i prelazite u firmu koja postoji svega nekoliko godina. Tada, kao senior inženjer i novopečeni tata, napustio sam stabilnu i uspešnu firmu i pridružio se mladim ljudima sa vizijom i željom da zajedno rastemo. Danas, sa gotovo 10 puta većim timom i 25 puta većim prihodima, FishingBooker je izrastao u mesto koje je prevazišlo sva moja očekivanja.

How We Stayed Afloat During COVID-19

There’s no point in sugarcoating it – when it comes to bad years, 2020 was right up there with some of the worst of them. Health, relationships, jobs – none of these were safe from the COVID-19 pandemic. Life as we knew it was completely transformed, and most of us at FishingBooker are still reeling from it.

The travel and tourism sector can be pretty fickle anyway, and the fishing charter industry often involves weathering both metaphorical and literal storms. Our bread and butter is providing customers with memorable angling adventures – but who’s booking a fishing trip in the middle of a global pandemic? With hindsight, it was obvious that our business would take a huge hit.

Identity, Stability, Lifestyle: Why FishingBooker’s Diaspora Decided to Stay

FishingBooker Recruiter Vedrana Gnjatić knows there’s one question she’ll never be able to avoid when she tells people that she relocated from Australia back to the Balkans: “But why?!”

“Serbians who were born and raised here, and haven’t lived elsewhere, automatically know that I’m not ‘one of them,’ even though I speak the language and was raised with plenty of Balkan culture in my household,” she says. “People have reacted in all sorts of ways – from slight confusion to straight-up asking what’s wrong with me for coming back!”

Bringing Work Home – 3 Weeks In

On March 9, our team reached a milestone here in Belgrade – we were now a 100-person company! A week later, our office was empty. Initially planning to work from home for a week and see how the new coronavirus was spreading locally, we, like so many other companies in the world, had actually become “remote” overnight.

Busting Bugs and Managing Disasters – How we Tackle Stability

Nobody – and nothing – is perfect. Anyone who deals with the inner workings of a website knows all too well that bugs are a fact of life. But managing a site that’s used by thousands of people and processes hundreds of bookings in a day means we need to be quick to identify these issues and act on them.

Forget “Typical Days”: What’s Customer Happiness at FishingBooker really like?

How do you describe a day in the life of the Customer Happiness team? You come into work, sit in your spot, put your headphones on, and steel yourself for a deluge of emails? Finally, you call it a day, ready for it all to start again tomorrow?
