Interview - 6th February 2018

Tell us something about the history of Pixelfield

We have started the company about five years ago. It was mostly fun at the beginning and we were not really serious about it. I was a law student at the time and I wanted to earn some money and work with friends from high school who became developers. But after few simple websites more complex project came along and it became a full-time job I love. We took every challenge and now few years later were tech. partner for some great companies and strat-ups and we are helping many businesses to adapt to new technology.

Are there any projects you are proud of?

I like all the projects we work on. But I am really proud when a client has a problem and we are able to come up with a solution fast. I am also proud of our development process. We are able to come up with a great MVP really fast and that is what clients need. Prove the concept, get the feedback. And go from there.

What kind of pizza do you like the most?

I am not really a pizza guy. The best pizza I’ve every had was in Naples, Italy. It was just a simple Margherita – tomatoes, mozzarella and basil. But it was so good. I need to go back there just because of this great experience.

Do you sleep in the office sometimes?

I do!

What kind of clients do you like the most?

I like positive people that are full of energy. The best customer for me is someone who really likes his work or business and who is passionate about the product. On the other hand I think I am able to get along with anyone. What I do not like are people or companies where no one really cares about the result.

What do you do when you are not at work?

I love travelling. I love to see new places, it gives me a new perspective. When I feel tired I just plan a trip and it can even be a short one. Backpack, laptop and I’m ready to go to the airport. I also love mountains. Alps in the summer – beautiful.  

I have an app in mind. What will our meeting look like?

I guess you will want to sign NDA :). And after that I will try to get to know you, your business and your goals. It’s necessary to be on the same page. If you don’t work with the client or don’t like the idea you will never end up with a good result.

What are you goals this year?

I have so many! We’ve got some great apps in development and I want them to turn out as good as possible. Also some new team members are coming so I want to see them fit in smoothly. You never know what’s going to happen. But I’m sure it’s gonna be challenging and entertaining.

And what about the personal goals?

I want to visit India finally. I’ve been planning that for some time already, so I hope I will be able to make it this year. It’s going to be just for a week or two but I still think it’s gonna be great.
