A blog post about me at Enova blog

I forgot to repost it early, and today, when I finally got to update my blog, I am shamelessly promoting myself;

Getting to Know: Tech

Want to know more about the folks who call Enova home? We asked Enova’s Software Engineering Technical Lead Henrietta Dombrovskaya our five favorite “get to know you better” questions, and here’s what she had to say:

How did you come to work at Enova?

A friend of mine sent me an email: “I know you only recently switched jobs, but the company my husband works at is looking for an experienced database administrator. Are you interested?”

While my move to Enova was motivated more by getting out of my old job than the new position, I quickly came to love it here! Both the people and the environment won me over very quickly!

What do you do at Enova?

My current role is the Database Development Tech Lead for Software Engineering, and believe it or not, what I actually spend most of my time doing is talking! I’m not sure how I ended up in this situation, but apparently I can do it quite well, despite not being a native speaker.

What’s the best part of working at Enova?

The freedom! It feels like I can do whatever I want at Enova, and pursue my interests every day! Luckily, it turns out that the projects I want to pursue are good for the company! I also love having the opportunity to participate in international conferences.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I believe it would still be Chicago. Oh, and I would love to have instant transportation to Helsinki!

What are your top three desert island must-haves?

  • Computer with Internet access
  • Chocolate
  • Coffee!
