Head of Development
“Hi, I am Patryk and I’m more than certain that after you join Apptension (it goes without saying, right?) we will be seeing each other a lot. I’m the Head of Development here and I will be your mentor.”
Patryk Ziemkowski
Head of Development
Daniel Kiyoi
Software Engineering Manager
Instead of clichés and promises of fruit Tuesdays, I could find specific information about the company and the position I applied for. And you know what? All of this turned out to be true!
What makes me happy at work is the opportunity to test and implement various, sometimes crazy solutions – of course, as long as they impact the company's development and achievement of business goals.
Daniel Capeletti
Software Engineering Manager
Daniel Kiyoi
CEO & Founder Magic Dust
At Apptension I met a lot of people with an amazing amount of experience and openness to new ideas. I learned different approaches to programming as well as had the opportunity to test different approaches to infrastructure. In the company I am not only involved in programming but also in technical recruitment and being a Team leader. Both of these two roles are very important to me from a development perspective.

I've decided to give it a try and it turned out to be the best decision in my professional career. With demanding, interesting projects and great people all around, Apptension helped me boost my skills - both technical and soft ones. For me, it is also important that it allowed me (and still does) to work a lot with AWS products.
