Meet The Team: Interview with Yavor Ivanov



Welcome on board to Yavor Happy reading!


Yavor, what led you to this career (to craftworks) and did your expectations about craftworks come true?

I was not satisfied with what I previously worked and I started to look for something new. I have known Boian for some years and asked him about the company he works for. Then I looked up the website and found out that they had an open position, suitable for me. I only started a few weeks ago but I can already see the difference to other employers and tell that craftworks meet my expectations. I hope that I meet their expectations too.


Could you tell us more about your position at craftworks and what you enjoy the most?

I’m a linux system administrator and I mostly enjoy working on the infrastructure.


What difference do you notice compared to your previous employment?

Family, cohesive and exciting.
