Introducing this month's Employee Spotlight: Clienteer Project Manager and Software Development Guru Elena Dovbenko! Originally from Kriviy Rih, Ukraine, she received her master's degree in applied mathematics from Oles Honchar Dnipro National University in Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine. Shortly after graduating she heard about an open position as a software developer at Imagineer through a friend and has now been with us for over 12 years. Her work plays an integral role in the continued development of our award-winning investor relations and fund marketing platform, Clienteer. Elena, described by her team as an expert developer with a kind spirit, works closely with folks from both our NYC and Ukraine offices to deliver improved functionality and new features for our Clienteer platform. Read our interview with Elena to learn more about her journey to Imagineer, and what excites her about the future.
What is your favorite part about your job?
At Imagineer, I am able to create something bigger than myself with a group of intelligent people from all over the world. I enjoy the challenges our team continuous tasked with and has to solve creatively.
What's an example of a challenge your team has received?
We created the first preview version of Clienteer Web in three months! It was a challenge, but we kept pushing ahead and were able to finish our list of projects successfully. Of course, the final version took longer, but I'm proud that our team was able to work together and accomplished this task so quickly.
What is a fun fact about yourself you'd like others to know?
My daughter is 3 years old and is going to kindergarten here in New York City soon. She has also started dance lessons, and it's been a lot of fun!
What are you most excited about for 2019?
I am looking forward to our team implementing quicker update releases and developing an even tighter integration with Azure.
I also can’t wait for our yearly 5k run and other fitness challenges!
