1. Why did you choose Wyze (Why Wyze)?
Actually, my story with Wyze began when I heard from my friend about a new player in the home monitoring market. At the time, I was working for a company that was developing high quality security cameras and services. I was so impressed with the price of Wyze Cams and the quality of the product. They weren’t inferior to more expensive competitors. So after talking to other Wyze people, I was convinced that the company’s strategy and my goals coincided. So I became the first Wyze mobile developer who works in Seattle. Honestly, this helped me participate in multiple projects not only as an engineer but as an architect. I was able to meet smart, inspired, and interesting people and I still feel the same after working here for more than one year.
2. What team are you on and what do they do?
I work for our mobile team leading the iOS team. I think we have an important role in the company since we are in front and engage users. We are building Wyze mobile apps (Android and iOS). We make first impressions. So if you are a person who loves challenges, you can become one who is changing stereotypes.
3. How long have you been with Wyze and what do you do here?
I’ve been working for Wyze almost 1.5 years. In this time, I developed VoIP for our video doorbells, created developer environments that made it easier to on-board new devs, and I participated in multiple interesting projects like Wyze Home Monitoring, Cam Plus Pro, and our security initiatives. But I’m mostly involved with the camera streaming department and we have a challenging project for the cameras.
4. What’s your favorite thing about working at Wyze?
People! Interesting, smart, and modern. And of course a chance to work on interesting challenges with those people. At this stage, Wyze gives a lot of opportunity for creativity: to invent or integrate something new and sometimes unusual.
5. How have Wyze product(s) impacted your life?
Not only me but also my family, my parents, and friends. I like that I can build something I can use. And I’m doing my best so my family and friends can be proud of Wyze products. Our Wyze apps’ ratings keep growing. Personally, I’m using almost everything that Wyze is doing. I’m honestly sleeping better when I know that my house is monitored, cameras keep my home securable, and sensors warn me if something’s leaking.
