Today we would like you to meet Adnan, Linux System Administrator at eBuddy.
Hi Adnan, please tell us a bit about yourself.
My name is Adnan and I come from Bosnia and Herzegovina. I’m part of the Debian Java team working on Eclipse IDE. I am also the DebConf11 main organizer and team leader. I have been working as a Linux developer for more than a decade. My passion is Linux and everything related to it.
When did you start working for eBuddy and what do you do here?
I started around two months ago and I work as Linux System Administrator. Most of my time is dedicated to building a service that will improve automation. I have a lot of fun working at eBuddy.
As you have joined recently, what was your first impression of the company?
I was overwhelmed by eBuddy even before I joined, and I still am. I find eBuddy to still be a startup at its heart, even though the scale it operates at and the technology it’s working with is competitive with leading IT companies such as Google, Amazon, eBay, etc.
…and the second?
My second opinion is even better than the first one. From my colleagues to the company founders, everybody is there to hear what you’ve got to say!
What do you like doing outside of your working hours?
My work is my life, when I get back home I just do the same thing I did at work. Play with more Linux stuff
How is Amsterdam/ the Netherlands different from where you come from?
As I have been living in many places and consider myself a resident of the Planet Earth, I will compare the Netherlands to my homeland and New York.
Compared to Bosnia, I’m amazed how organized everything is. Everything is working like clockwork. Also, people are extremely polite and attentive.
Compared to New York City, life is also in the fast lane but somehow everyone’s just taking it easy. I find Amsterdam to be a completely stress free environment.
At first New York City was called New Amsterdam, so I’m here to discover the original cool I suggest everyone watch this video to get a feel of what it’s like to live in Amsterdam.
Thanks a lot for your time, Adnan! Have a good day.
