To celebrate International women´s day we have interviewed our talented Developer Daria who is working together with the Swedish developer team at Pia Relations.

Daria has both a bachelor’s degree and a Master exam from Tyumen state university of architecture and civil engineering. She is a very appreciated colleague and has worked together with us since 2019.

Pia Relations want to encourage more women to apply for the IT industry. Read about Daria's journey in the interview below.

Can you share a little bit about yourself?

I am 26 years Russian girl, living in Thailand and enjoying Developer work in a lovely company 😊 If someone told me this info 11 years ago, I would have laughed at him.

What influenced you to pursue a career in IT?

I was 16 and had actually no idea what way to choose. And my Father told me: “you should choose IT, you have a technical mindset and IT is our future”. I thought it would be interesting to have a chance to be able to do something in this field. To be honest all I knew about IT was "Hello world!" on HTML 😂

What is the most fun part about your job?

I find all challenges with bugs interesting, finding a way to solve any given task. Sometimes it breaks your mind and you want to crash your laptop, but when you get it done...amazing feeling!

What advice would you give to a woman considering technology/CRM as her career?

One time my friend's father told me: how many Famous IT women do you know? IT is not for women. It´s a man's world. But never listen to someone else if you do like IT!  You will have so many opportunities to realize your dreams. Just follow your heart and desire!
