Raluca Badoi

Software Engineer, HeyJobs

I am a self-taught software engineer, working in industry for bit over 5 years. I am full stack developer, with inclination toward backend and dev-ops layers of application development. After working 10 years in a job I didn’t enjoy, just for financial security purpose, I was given the chance to reinvent myself, and choose a job that brought me happiness. Was then when I decided to become a software engineer, and started to study programming languages: Python, Java, then Ruby, from various online sources, books and tutorials. I also searched the power of community to support my transformation.

I know how valuable is getting help at right moment, and I found it is rewarding giving back to community, that’s why I volunteered for a couple of years in local Rails Girls organisation, both as organizer, and as coach during our workshops. Looking forward to share my learnings and my expertise with people interested to hear.
