Meet the Team
Meet Gabriel, one of our team members at Cleverbit. His journey in tech started as a child, picking a voltmeter in a Maltese tradition. Gabriel loves gaming and admires big names in technology like Bill Gates. He joined Cleverbit five years ago, drawn by our skilled team and friendly work environment. Learn about his daily life, his views on working with technology, and why he enjoys being part of Cleverbit.
My quccija! This is a Maltese tradition where a baby is presented with a number of objects that symbolise career choices, and the object chosen by the baby indicates their future career. I distinctly remember reaching for an orange voltmeter. Also, my childhood was full of Playstation 1 and 2 games.
I normally like to wake up late, eat some fruit and head out the door, but really my days vary quite a bit.
When I was younger, I used to have a lot of superstitions, but thankfully I’ve outgrown most of them and now consider myself pretty vanilla in this aspect.
Probably Bill Gates and Paul Allen – I use a lot of Microsoft products, and I think the whole industry would be drastically different without them. Different industry, but Brandon Sanderson is up there too.
When I was a student, I had several interviews, but Cleverbit was different. Early on, the team was only about four people, and their high skill level really came through during the interview. I knew that I would have a good mentorship relationship joining here – plus the friendly attitude really sold me on the company. The fact that there are no strict times or uniforms also makes a lot of sense to me. It’s been 5 years now, and I have no regrets.
From the beginning, we’ve been working on a particular project – it’s challenging, it’s huge, and there’s always something new to learn.
Since I’ve started, it hasn’t really changed: everyone knows each other, it’s informal, everyone’s friendly. We’re constantly sharing jokes, but we work really hard too.
If I had to choose I’d probably like to be either a game dev or a writer – fantasy would probably be my genre.
