Getting to know Persefoni: Meet Eugene Husak
"Once in a Lifetime"
Published August 23, 2021
1. And you may ask yourself, "Well... how did I get here?" (Tell us your journey?)
My roots come from a small city in western Ukraine named Lutsk, and later I attended and successfully graduated from the Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute with a Master’s Degree. I started my tech career initially as a freelancer for big international companies, where I learned a great deal about how large organizations operate. After working at a large energy company, I was very happy to cross paths with Persefoni, which to my mind helps solve the biggest problem facing the world today.
2. And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile. (What do you do at Persefoni?)
I am a Senior Web Developer and part of a really great web team. We are building a top-notch platform that helps large organizations measure and manage their carbon footprint. Every day at Persefoni is both a challenge and a pleasure. I am working on creating features, building UI/UX, working closely with other product teams, and of course, having fun!
3. And you may ask yourself, "Where does that highway go to?" (What are your hopes for your time at Persefoni?)
Climate change is a pressing problem, and I see how our customers already benefit from what we are doing. What we are building. I believe the work Persefoni is doing is not only useful but critical! This topic strikes a chord with me and I enjoy improving my competence in this area.
4. And you may say to yourself, "My God! What have I done?" (Why is Persefoni a great home for you?)
At some point in my life, I changed my ideology to only work with technology that benefits humanity and not vice-versa. Persefoni is the best match imaginable! Being a part of the team is something truly amazing. I am grateful for this opportunity.
5. And you may find yourself in another part of the world... (Tell us about your life/hobbies away from work?)
Most of my time away from work I spend with my wife and my young son. We love to travel and doing that together brings us all a tremendous amount of joy! Besides that, I play in an amateur football (soccer) team. I am a huge fan of cybersports and visiting big cybersports events is especially fun.
