60 Seconds with our Junior Front-End Developer, Alex

Alexandra Pascal

Can you tell us about your role and responsibilities at Invotra?

I spend 90% of my time coding in JavaScript and CSS, developing the front-end of the applications where I combine my artistic and technical skills.

How did your journey begin at Invotra?

My journey at Invotra started when my line manager Mireille, attended one of the ReactJS meetups where I had a small talk on React Router. At that time, I was studying JavaScript at Kodiri boot camp and shortly after I finished the boot camp I joined Invotra team.

What is important to you when it comes to working culture?

Friendly team, pleasant atmosphere and projects that keep me interested are the most important things when it comes to working culture.

Tell us about a project that you’re working on…

I’m currently working on a new project which is still in its testing phase, where I’m making changes to the UI of the application by implementing Material UI in my components.

What is one surprising/interesting fact that people don’t know about you?

Very few people know I’m a Reiki practitioner and I’m interested in all aspects of Yoga. Through meditation I manage to relax and recharge so I can be the best version of myself.

Name one career goal that you would like to achieve in the coming year…

Becoming a JavaScript master is my goal for this year and I will invest all my resources in achieving that. I believe that if you push hard enough you can attain anything you put your mind to.

Is there anyone in particular, living or dead, that has inspired you throughout your career progression?

My role model will always be my grandfather. He had an amazing pharmacists career and he was the calmest and balanced person I have ever known. He taught me to follow my instincts when I had to choose a path in my life or in my career and how to continue staying on that path whenever things might not seem right anymore. I will always be grateful I had such a good example in my life.
