We at Klika enjoy celebrating all of our milestones together. Whether it is a personal milestone of someone on the team or the award and recognition that we receive as a company, we are always committed to strive for the best and jointly continue reaching our goals.
As a part of our special Klika Service Awards programme, Klika decided to devote this blog space to our colleagues who reached five or more years of working at Klika during this quartal of the year. By sharing their experience and stories of their career path, members of our team celebrating 5 years milestone encourage and motivate young engineers at Klika, but also in the IT industry in general.
Let's start off with an interview done with Naida Huseinovic, Scrum Master at Klika, who's been on the team for 6 years now.
Enjoy your read!
K: Dear Naida, we are happy to celebrate this milestone with you! Congratulations!
You’ve been growing with Klika for six years, and we are looking forward to your future milestones and achievements!
Let’s start with a few simple questions! For how long have you been a part of the Klika team? Which project are you working on and what is your current role?
N: I am a part of Klika team since February 2nd 2015, which means already 6 years and 3 months. Currently I am working on our smart bed IoT project as a Scrum Master in Puzzle, LEGO and Power-Rangers squads.
K: Tell us more about your career path at Klika. Have your roles and projects changed during the time?
N: At first I was QA engineer on Home Delivery App. This Android app is used for bed setup, meaning that it is part of smart bed IoT project. At the same time I was a QA engineer on CSP (Customer Support Portal). That is web app, which is used by support agents, especially when customers are calling and having some issues with bed.
Apart from this, I would like to share one fun fact: I am the first QA at Klika. :) I have to say that it has been an amazing experience to work with Samir Eljazović, Emina Dolamić and Milan Samardžić at the very start of my Klika QA career.
In August 2015 I joined the QA team on smart bed Consumer App. It was a hybrid app, and after some time, it was transitioned to native app, meaning we had Web, Android and iOS apps. At the time I was working as automation engineer, mostly on Android app.
In May/June 2018th I’ve started working as a Scrum Master on HDA and CSP apps, during this time I was QA on this apps as well.
In July 2018th I was officially promoted into Scrum Master for all smart bed IoT projects (SIQ Customer app, HDA, CSP and EDP). Shortly after my promotion I had to leave my colleagues and go to pregnancy, and later maternity leave.
In April 2020th I was finally back. It was Covid-19 time. New office, since I left when Klika was I Grawe building… and new project. I’ve worked as QA (backend automation) on a FinTech project together with my colleague Emrah. From November 2020th I was back on smart bed project as a Scrum Master on consumer app in Puzzle, LEGO and Power-Rangers squads.
Beside everything that is written above, I have to mention that during my work at Klika, I was a mentor (QA or Scrum Master) at 5 (as I remember) Klika Intership programs.
K: What do you like the most about Klika? What makes Klika special and motivates you to keep riding the waves?
N: The thing I like most about Klika, is that it is not a “standard” company, where employees are not able to loudly raise their (objective) concerns, wishes, opinions or critics as well.
Also, Klika cares about our personal growth and about our education, certification, always trying to support us in our interests in different fields.
Also, Klika is socially responsible company and it cares about the most vulnerable categories in our society
K: What do you consider as your biggest accomplishment during the period you spent at Klika?
N: Hmmm, I am not sure if I can say that is it MY accomplishment. In my opinion there is nothing that only one person can say that he/she did and that something is only her/his accomplishment.
If I have to say something, it would be my Team work sensibility. There is a lot of things that I am proud off, such as, all interns from internships where I was a mentor, who are my colleagues now. I can say that they are very good developers/QA engineers, professionals and good team players.
K: What’s your favorite memory from the time you spent at Klika so far?
N: There is a lot of that … Maybe, Ivan’s and my morning chit chats, when we were in Bosmal. Since Ivan and I were often the first ones to come to the office in the morning. Or maybe every time I was the first person (for a longer time period) to welcome our new colleagues, at their first work day at Klika (I was first to come to work).
K: How do you see yourself at Klika in the next five years? What’s your future vision of Klika?
N: Hmmm, my goal is to become the best Scrum Master I can be, to learn all skills that I need which will help my teams to do great work and to make great progress in our careers, which would be valuable to Klika as a company well.
K: What is a piece of advice that you would like to share with people who are just getting started their career at Klika?
N: Do not hesitate to share your knowledge with your colleagues. Leave your ego aside. Do not forget to tell your colleagues “Thank you”, “Please”, “I am sorry”. Do not forget to praise every help you got from others. Try to learn something on a daily basis, because that is the best way to continuously improve yourself personally and professionally.
K: Thank you!
N: It was a pleasure! :)
