My Growth - Unique Opportunities and Cultural Fit - Jędrzej Meder, Front-End Developer

My role at Tidio is a unique combination of front-end development and growth hacking. I’m responsible for creating high-quality landing pages as well as managing and constantly improving them. I love challenges, and my head is always full of new ideas. I’ve been creating websites for years, emphasizing conversion, SEO and performance. In my spare time, I ride an electric unicycle, play golf and build the most outstanding medical equipment eCommerce in Poland :)

What does "Grow with Tidio" mean to you?

I've been working at Tidio for over three years now. While three years in one place seems like a lot in the IT industry, I don't feel that my growth is slowing down.

During this time, I've had the chance to join the best courses, attend many conferences, work with world-class consultants and make crucial decisions on product development. I also have access to internal growth initiatives to work on my soft skills (f.e public speaking and communication) and courses and conferences to improve my technical skills. Over this time, the company has grown significantly - and I fully participated in this growth.

What attracted you to Tidio in the first place?

I remember how great I felt in my previous job - I didn't think about changing it at all!

That's when the former Head of Growth at Tidio contacted me and wrote that he was building the most powerful growth machine, which would scale Tidio to the Unicorn level. I wasn't sure if I wanted to risk my current position for work in a startup, but finally, he tempted me with company values that suited me perfectly. 

The interview also made a great impression on me. The recruiter emphasized that they strive to work with experts in their fields, as people can learn from each other and influence each other with passion, ambition, and creative thinking. They look for individuals who not only equate with the company's values but will also add new qualities and perspectives. And the biggest benefit they can offer is the possibility of working with the best of the best.

And after it, I knew this was a unique opportunity for me! And here I am. 

What do you do in Tidio? What does your day look like?

I am a Front- end developer in Web Presence Team. My Team is taking care of all areas related to the design and development of our company's website, which is one of the most critical channels for attracting new customers. 

We focus on delivering high-quality landing pages that drive our marketing efforts and, thus, product sales and manage and constantly improve our company's home page. We work with various teams within the company (Content/Blog, Affiliates, SEM Marketing), providing solutions needed for Tidio's various acquisition efforts.

At Tidio, we can work 100% remotely, and we also have access to our two offices in Szczecin and Warsaw. What is your favorite way of working?

Even though we can work 100% remotely, I prefer working from the office. TBH I come to Szczecin's office every day! I'm a people person, and meeting face-to-face with my colleagues is the perfect motivational booster that makes my work efficient. Of course, from time to time, I take advantage of our flexible working policy and work from home. It’s always good to have options.

Any tips for someone looking to get into a career like yours?

Three short tips that gave me the most significant boost in my career were: 

  • Find and explore IT meetups online and offline! I recommend joining some of them and actively participating in networking. 
  • If you are beginning your developer career, try to join a startup, not a corporation. It will benefit you by faster development of your skills.
  • Start your own project. It doesn't have to be the next Unicorn but the place where you can improve your development skills, try something new, or just make a playground for learning other technologies.

What are the goals/aspirations you'd like to achieve in your career in the next year?

Last year I was focused on improving my public speaking skills - I had my first try as a lecturer at meetJS Kraków, where I talked about migration from WordPress to Next.js. Now I am hungry for more and ready to share my work experience at some big conference next year!
