TAIA about us cofounder and head of development Matija

Matija Kovač
Development manager and Cofounder

Hey there,
my name is Matija and if you decide to join lead our development team we’ll be working together on a daily basis to make TAIA a modern web platform that brings value to our users and makes us all proud. You will be the person in charge of our product development and this way Marko and I will lay our full trust into your capabilites as a leader.

Our frontend is built with React and works closely with our Laravel-based backend to provide users with fast file analysis, immediate project price calculations depending on parameters selected, management of translation projects and other cool features we take pride in. We’re quite proud of what we’ve built so far but I’m also aware there’s much to be done still and many tasks to resolve still. But why don’t you go and take a minute to sign up for a free account and give it a spin to see for yourself.

But we’re just getting started here and there’s much, much more we have planned for our platform. I like to work closely with our development team on how to implement the ideas we come up with together as a team. But it will be your job to make sure these ideas make sense, get researched and formulated well and, most importantly, that you see them get completed and published. 

We like to work remotely from the comfort of our home offices, but hanging out in our office does has it advantages to. Especially when discussing further product development and making strategic decisions, it’s much more efficient if we can stick our heads together.

You’ll be free to build and lead your team the way you please, as long as your work will provide results we agree upon, is well documented and upholds to industry standards. We like to work with Agile methodology but we’re not very strict on processes as we are more interested in making an awesome product that helps our users, both end-clients and our TAIA team.

I’m looking forward to getting to know you and meet the person responsible for the future of our technical product development. 

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.
