Celebrating 5 years - Edgar Banisauskas
To celebrate his 5th Anniversary at Diva Telecom, we spoke with our Software Developer, Edgar Banisauskas, to learn more about him:
What is your role at Diva Telecom?
I build new software when required and make changes to the existing software – for example if we find something is not working as well as it could do, I will fix and improve it.
What made you decide on joining Diva Telecom?
It seemed like a good opportunity to learn a lot of things, and I was right actually – it was, and still is, a great place to improve my skills. When I think about where I was before joining Diva and where I am now, there is a big difference.
What achievement are you most proud of inside or outside of work?
Inside of work, it would probably be creating the SMS portal. Before I joined Diva, there was an old portal and now that the new one has been put together, it is a lot more functional and easier to use.
I’ve also done quite a lot of nice things at home. I built my daughter a playhouse last year, which looks really nice and I fixed the roof by myself this summer.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Some of my hobbies include beekeeping, gardening and woodworking. I also enjoy home brewing – which includes making my own beer and wine.
What type of music do you listen to?
That’s a difficult one – I like any type of music, really. If you looked through the CDs in my car you’d find classical music, trance music, Celtic music, Serbian pop, Armenian folk etc. I don’t really like hard metal, but then again I occasionally enjoy a bit of Rammstein!
Where is your favourite place to eat out?
I don’t really have a favourite place to eat out – none of the places I’ve been to can match my wife’s cooking, so I mostly eat at home. From all the places I’ve been, the nicest food was probably at Jamie’s Italian in Leeds City Centre.
What would be your ideal holiday?
The Siberian Forest, away from people, in a log cabin with a wood burner and a fishing rod next to a river or lake full of fish – that’s it!
One quirky fact about you?
As I mentioned earlier, I enjoy beekeeping so I keep thousands of bees in my garden. I actually had an interview with the Yorkshire Post a few years ago, on my hobby of beekeeping, click here to read the article.
