Onboarding & Education specialist - Luize Reuta
Scared of the forests, for example. For the first several years of her life, Luize believed there are ghosts living in every forest, so she tried to avoid them at all costs, only to grow up as a real nature lover. Luize spent her childhood in the deep countryside by the Latvian-Estonian border. Because all of her closest neighbors were Estonians she just smiled at and played games with, she was convinced she's an Estonian, too. Only after some time, Luize finally realized she was, in fact, Latvian, and forests are wonderful. Now she's a significant part of Scandiweb's HR department. Luize is the person by your side at any given moment for the first 3 months of your journey in Scandiweb. She'll make sure to use her creativity to find ways to assist, help, and motivate in any given situation. In case something's up, she's the person who's always at your reach.
When free from work, Luize loves to go on short weekend trips around Europe and finding all the best coffee places over there. Not only that, she's managed to go on a hike on a few big mountains and a glacier! Luize's most favorite pass time activities though can be summarized in drinking coffee, socializing and cooking up a storm in the kitchen.
Luize names unity, creativity, innovation, and humor as the four pillars of Scandiweb holding it together this tightly. The outside of the box thinking is much appreciated and has pushed her to come up with unconventional solutions to any situation.

Engineer - Edgars Suveizda
Edgars was born and raised in Aglona and used to believe that movies and TV shows only started the filming AFTER they began promoting them. Now he's a developer part of Scandiweb's Support superheroes, working with the Hulk division. With the typical tasks of a support dev, Edgars' days consist of fixing various issues and implementing features on any of the requested by clients, or, as he puts it eloquently, his task is to take good care of Scandiweb's clients. Being persistent by nature, this quality translates well into the work environment - making mistakes is not uncommon, but what helps Edgars constantly progress is the ability and desire to not give up, learn from them and continuously improve.
Music has a special place in Edgars' heart, with Rock being the favorite genre. His free time is taken up with books and all sorts of activities, including programming. Indeed, interested in the digital environment to the point it could be characterized as a hobby, Edgars is happy that his hobby and work overlap, making the path to developing his abilities into a highway.

Project Manager - Gustavs Zandersons
At an earlier age, Gustavs used to believe that becoming a millionaire would be a breeze, unaware of the hard work and dedication it requires. Now he’s a project manager at Scandiweb, with all the usual responsibilities of a PM — team management, client communication, requirement gathering, etc. He’s also simultaneously working on his Master’s degree! Highlighting the right kind of communication to be of crucial importance, Gustavs excels at finding the right approach, the right tone, the right words to get most out of people — be it a boisterous client, or a timid colleague.
Gustavs is a superb basketball player and takes pride in being able to dunk, despite being shorter (180cm) than the average player. He follows all kinds of sports, but the NBA has a special place in his heart. Another point of pride for Gustavs is having been recognized for exceptional academic achievements and being included in the Riga Technical University graduate Golden Fund.
In terms of favorite things about Scandiweb, there are so many different activities taking place, that it’s really easy to get integrated. It’s super easy to find like-minded people, and, more importantly, make friends.
Engineer - Aistis Gasparavicius
Aistis grew up in Ignalina, Lithuania. When he was a kid, his father was working as an instructor. The first time Aistis heard this job title, he imagined it sounding just like "constructor" and from that moment on was convinced his father has a dream job of building things out of a huge pool of plastic bricks. He's now a true builder of his own — building, i.e., developing Shopify themes at Scandiweb and creating + supporting custom applications that are used by the Shopify store. Since 2008 Aistis has been gathering knowledge in eCommerce in various management positions that come in handy working on every project here.
As a pastime and beloved hobby, cycling takes it all. No matter if Aistis is doing a century ride over the mountains, race against others in a local MTB race or just going for training on roads next to his house — he feels as if he's always getting back from those as an improved version of himself. And that's the version he tries to be with his wife and daughter every day. The rest, he says, is not so important.
Scandiweb for Aistis is a great place to grow as a developer, and there's still potential here to greatly extend the list of things to learn and be curious about. Aistis also states that a community without coworkers couldn't exist, so he dearly appreciates the teammates.
KPI Specialist - Daniels Mitrofanovs
Born in Germany but raised in Latvia, Daniels was a tirelessly curious child asking the big questions: why is everything like this, but not in any other way? how are things invented? After an unorthodox job interview in a taxi, Daniels joined Scandiweb's Finance department. He's found a way to apply his curiosity to search for innovative solutions in his day-to-day assignments. Daniel's work is mostly related to KPI system implementation, but recently he's been busy with creating auto-report systems. Having gathered a solid set of skills in statistics throughout the years, as well as being a fast learner, Daniels keeps his colleagues in safe hands when it comes to being responsible for our finances.
Once been a dedicated football enthusiast, now Daniels enjoys watching scientific tv-shows and science-fiction movies in his free time, reading detectives and finding cool concerts to go to. Playing interactive board games with his friends is another enjoyable type of relaxing in-between work.
When asked to name a great thing in Scandiweb, Daniels can't help but answer — everything and everybody. The helpful colleagues and positive atmosphere make for incredibly delightful working hours every day of the workweek.
