Meet Pawel

Backend Engineer

How would you describe your role at Sunscrapers?

I'm a back-end Python programmer. I also do some JavaScript. I see my role in Sunscrapers as transforming real-life phenomena into abstract and strict structures. In this regard programming is very similar to my second passion, philosophy – both create intelligible models of things.

Why did you join Sunscrapers?

To make interesting applications. To work with fun and talented people. To be up-to-date with latest technologies. To program in Python. To program in JavaScript. To master Django. To learn the ways of the AngularJS. To challenge myself. To learn new things every day. To play foosball :)

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I've always been fascinated with two things: figuring out stuff and building stuff. At first, I wanted to be a physicist, like my parents. Then, a programmer; I loved writing simple Basic scripts on my Commodore 64, then a little more complicated programs in QBasic, Pascal, and Delphi. I also used to spend lots of time making maps for FPS games. And I enjoyed my Lego bricks (I still do!)... I guess I wanted to be an architect as well ;) Finally, I fell in love with philosophy for its focus on finding an intelligible framework of reality (I chose it as my major and ended up with Ph.D.). My fascination in programming – which is both figuring out stuff and building stuff – never disappeared, though. 

I also wanted to be a Jedi.

What are your favourite quotes?

"All humans naturally desire to be, to live and to understand." — Thomas Aquinas

"It is the perfection of God's works that they are all done with the greatest simplicity. He is the God of order and not of confusion." — Isaac Newton

"Yes, a Jedi's strength flows from the Force. But beware of the dark side. Anger, fear, aggression – the dark side of the Force, are they." — Master Yoda
