Community Manager Igor
Hello, Igor, please tell us about yourself.
I am Ukrainian from Dnipro city in its central eastern part. I have a master's degree in geography and have a series of short-lived jobs, but for the last 10 years I have been working in the Test IO parent company. I would put my hobbies into several categories as passive: listening to & discovering new music, watching & cheering for favorite sport games & teams, learning about my city; and active (spend most of my free time on): training & playing tennis, writing, walking, traveling locally & abroad. I love potatoes and ribs – it may sound not quite healthy, but I am trying to balance it with a proper regime and diet. I am not sure that I have a favorite book or movie, though I have done quite many of them. Let me mention an actor and writer instead: Joaquin Phoenix and John Steinbeck.
Please tell us what you do on the platform. What are your responsibilities? What tasks do you do every day?
My role is Community manager and I’ve come in to start a community for one of the new spaces we’re building. So, it's a mix of organizational & documentation with lots of communications.
What do you like most about your job? What motivates you at work?
I like the people who are working here – their attitude and personalities. It quite differs from what I get used to. Also, I like a combination of desire to prevail the market and genuine caring for people. So, I can name it as my motivation.
Do you like to travel? If yes, which country would you like to visit first? What was the most beautiful place you have ever visited?
Yeah, a lot! I am even counting visited countries. Now I have 28 and it’s mostly Europe, but there are a few from Asia and Africa. It is so unfortunate that there were just two new countries in the last three years. I remember lots of beautiful places, but I want to mention the Meteora rock formation is in northern Greece.
What book would you recommend reading?
Any John Steinbeck book.
If given the opportunity, which language would you learn and why?
I would say Portuguese or Swedish because I like these countries and language spreading of the first one, and the challenge of learning the second.
What would you suggest everyone try to do?
Try more different activities that train and develop your body & brain, and things that will give you a proper relaxation. Then choose ‘yours’ and keep them in the balance.
