Introducing: Andres Sahun, Frontend Lead

Our team members make Orderfox a special, vibrant company. While having different backgrounds and personalities, every colleague has a passion for their field of work and our collective mission. This month, we talked to Andres Sahun, our Frontend Lead

Tell us a little bit about what you do here at Orderfox:

I founded my own video game startup and since then I’ve been collaborating with small teams. That experience pushed me to work in all the aspects required to build successful companies in very different industries. 
I’m applying that experience to Orderfox, no matter the field, Frontend, Backend, Hiring, Marketing from the Strategy, to the more tactical decisions. The most important thing for me is to keep the team together and build a nice place to work.

What is a typical day at Orderfox like for you?

Prepare coffee, join the daily meeting, identify where there would be a blocker or an improvement and try to solve it. The team might need me coordinating a new feature and ultimately if everything is looking well I might take some time to code. My output is the output of the product team, all I want to achieve is that they shine.

How long have you worked for Orderfox?

I just did 2 years! 

What’s your favourite part about working for Orderfox?

The pleasure of kicking the CEO’s butt at chess. :-) I’m here because of the team we have. I love to work with them, learn from them. And because health and family comes first, with 100% trust, if our family or we need to take a break that comes first. 

What challenges do you face and how do you deal with these?

Technical challenges are cool, I like them, I love when somebody tells me something can’t be done. The hardest are the human challenges, always different and sometimes very complex. I would spend as much time as necessary listening and finding solutions. The team knows I care and I don’t surrender easily.

What makes working at Orderfox special for you?

We can change anything, we can talk to anyone in the company, and propose solutions. We’re all aware of that and we enjoy the team pushing to improve things, from a new process in the continuous integration pipeline to a board game evening.

If you could sum up the culture at Orderfox into 3 words what would they be?

Trust, teamwork, talent.

What are you looking forward to accomplishing at Orderfox?

Revolutionise the way CNC matching works, making what it’s actually very hard. 

What do you like to do in your spare time? What hobbies do you have?

I completed the Pacific Crest Trail in 2019, there’s a true hiker inside me, but lately I’m spending my time changing diapers and playing with my daughter.

What’s your favourite movie?

"Into the wild".

What’s your favourite food?

A hot chocolate after a long day in the mountains.
