Hi! I’m Elena, I write code, and I live in beautiful Amsterdam.
I talk with customers, lead teams, interview new developers, mentor juniors, and establish code review practices in my teams. I develop android applications on my own. I write unit tests and care about code quality.
I currently lead the team of 7 people at Booking.com. We are called the Geo team and we take care of all location-related stuff on the website.
As a team leader, I care about the climate in my team. I collaborate, ask for opinions, and share knowledge. And I’m making sure my team does the same.
Along with that, I lead my team to the best work they can do for the company. Prioritization and customer centric thinking are my strong skills. I talk to customers to understand their needs and wishes, and I align these with high-level business priorities.
As a conference speaker, I presented a talk about Geodata and A/B testing.
