Hi! Thank you for doing this interview with us, and taking time out of your busy schedule.
How are you?
I’m excited! I’m about to give the first interview for “Meet the Team!”
First, can you introduce yourself and let us know what you do at Spreaker?
I’m the co-founder and CTO: I spend my days (and sometimes nights) developing, debugging, and monitoring Spreaker’s infrastructure. In my spare time I like to relax on the couch with a mug of tea, and am also a bit of a photographer. In the past I was also a juggler ;).
How did you start your job at Spreaker?
“It was a cold winter night…” On the night of my birthday, three years ago, I received a phone call from @thebask who said: “we have an idea and need you to help us out.” A few months later I left my job and started developing a Spreaker prototype. I’d actually like to give a special thanks to my wife and @roccozanni who, in their own ways, have helped and come along this adventure with me since the first day.
Which Spreaker feature do you like the most?
I love the DJ console. Even though it was developed over two years ago, I still consider it a gem of an application. We’re also working on revolutionizing broadcasting once again for 2012: stay tuned!
Can you give us a few reasons why it’s great working at Spreaker?
I love working at Spreaker because it’s like a big family, united by a love for technology and the desire to create a unique service. It’s fun, too. Each day at lunch we challenge each other at darts, the boss won’t fire me if I listen to music during working hours, and our office is just a few steps away from the beach!
