Meet Simon Adi, a Data Engineer and one of Archlet’s very first employees. He talked to us about what brought him to Archlet, what he’s been nerding out about and how he would survive life on a desert island.
If I'm honest, money. But in all seriousness, I could tell from our founders, Tim, Lukas, and Jakob that Archlet was different from other companies I interviewed at. The interviews were nice, the team spirit was good, and the communication was better. I could tell right away.
I’m a Data Scientist, so I spend most of my day in Python, handling all the data that is input into the app. My favorite part of the job is when I get to research new things—things we haven’t done yet, where there’s room to think and try something new. There are of course parts of the role that are more straightforward where you know what you have to do and how to do it, so it’s fun when we get to explore something new.
Video games are my superpower. Anything that requires aim, I'm good at.
A flare gun and a Swiss army knife. I wouldn’t consider myself someone who is or would be well-prepared for that type of situation. But I can improvise, that’s my specialty.
In summer, pretty much any bar ideally next to Limmat. Which, for those unfamiliar with the city is the main river in Zurich. As long as it’s sunny and I’m outside, I’m happy. And in the winter, my house. I’m from the South of France and despise the cold.
There are two main things. One is the amazing team. There is an amazing team spirit, and I enjoy working with everyone. Secondly, the fact that I can take initiative. I get to have input on what we do and I can quickly see the impact of it on our users.
Don’t sweat it. We’re nice people.
