So Jacob, how long have you been working in eCommerce and development?
I’ve been working in eCommerce for about four months, since I came to work for Creatuity. I started to learn programming when I was 14. Basically I learned everything from books. Until I was 18, I was writing custom Windows applications in Delphi and C++ Builder, but I switched to
PHP a few years ago to focus more on web development. I consider programming as
a hobby and as a thing I really like to do. I like to focus on and develop unique
and customized applications that suit the client’s needs.
With that in mind, what drew you to working in eCommerce and development?
It definitely wasn’t an impulse; it was fate! A client of mine required a web-based
application so I needed to learn PHP from scratch, having only OO knowledge from my
previous projects. I really liked PHP and decided to stay and focus more on web
Do you have any particular skills you’d like to share?
I have experience in PHP, C/C++, and other programming languages. Also, I’m very
interested in the Forex market, and once a month I run seminars on high-risk investing,
teaching people how to be successful investors and avoid risk.
What’s your favorite part about working at Creatuity?
The atmosphere here in the office. We have a good energy as a team, and we always
try to help each other and share knowledge that benefits everyone.
Any of hobbies or things you love to do when you’re not working?
Extreme sports, like skiing and mountain biking, some charity work, and taking care of
my three beloved German Shepherds. I like reading books about self improvement and
watching good movies as well. I’m the kind of person who doesn’t like to stay in one
place, and I’m always finding new and interesting things to do.
