My name is Savas (pronounced Savash), and I am a Senior Frontend Engineer at Gitlab, in the Defend team. This page is a brief readme about myself and the ways I work.
Having spent half of my life in Switzerland and the other in Turkey, I consider myself a bicultural person. I believe this allowed me to make friendships quite fast and get used to other cultures pretty quick. I speak 3 languages fluently: English, Italian and Turkish. I have some French knowledge and enough German to explain my needs in the tax office.
I do like running, swimming, hanging out with friends and spending time with my family. I love nature and all the beauties that comes with it.
My working style
I am mostly available. I enjoy working.
If I have been given a task, I put all of my effort to complete it within the expected delivery time.
I am a fast learner.
What I assume about others
Everyone is different so I usually put myself in other's shoes and behave accordingly.
No matter how experienced is the person I am talking to, I always assume that they have no context and I try to explain even the most obvious thing. I don't do this because I think the person has no knowledge but rather I do this because sometimes people (including myself) are timid to ask questions and I don't to put anyone in that position.
Communicating with me
I am very easy going - just try to be as direct as possible with me.
I prefer async communication, however when async is not being helpful I am almost always available for a sync communication.
