What do you do at our company?

I’m a Software Engineer in the Kale development team.

How long have you been working at Arrikto?

I started in October 2020.

What has been your favorite project so far?

My favorite project has been implementing Kale’s AutoML mechanism, which was also the topic of my thesis. It was actually my first project in the company.

What do you like most about your role?

That I take up projects that challenge me and help me learn a ton of things. Also, the fact that I get to collaborate with so many smart people.

What do you think is the most valuable lesson you have learned while working at Arrikto so far?

If you can’t fully describe it, you haven’t actually understood it.

What were you doing before working at Arrikto?

I was a student at the National Technical University of Athens. Still am actually. I plan to get my degree this November. I also was a Google Summer of Code student for Kubeflow.

What do you like to do when you aren’t working?

I play my electric guitar, almost too loud.

Three words to best describe you.

Comical, outgoing, hard-working.

What is the one thing you can’t live without?

Music. And if you want me to be more materialistic: my headphones. I pop them up whenever I’m bored waiting for the bus, and things get so much more interesting.

Where’s your favorite place in the world?

The island of Amorgos.

What is your motto?

Life is a constant preparation for an exam that’s never going to come.

What is one food that you cannot resist?

I’m virtually incapable of resisting a good burger meal.

What’s something you’re planning on doing in the next year that you’ve never done?

Taking up singing lessons. I want to feel confident singing outside of my shower eventually.
