Meet the Team

Sergei Saliba

Discover the story of one of our team members who started their tech journey by setting up a Dendi, a gaming console in Russia. A daily ritual of grinding coffee beans and catching up with the news fuels their day. While not superstitious, they have a unique way of dealing with tech frustrations. Choosing Cleverbit for its grounded approach and involved founders, they’ve tackled projects like optimising bulk email processes. Appreciating our multicultural, friendly work environment, they also dream of exploring the culinary world as a chef.

Probably hooking up a gaming station – in Russia, we had Dendi, like a pirated version of Nintendo, so I hooked it up by myself.

Describe your day-to-day routine, if you have one.

Wake up and make coffee – I grind my own beans, I put it in the Moka, and have a look at the news.

People who work with tech can be superstitious. Do you have a favourite computer superstition or ritual that probably doesn’t work – but you still do it anyway?

I take out my frustrations on my keyboard – smack it a couple of times, and shake it. That seems to work. That said, I’m not really superstitious – but I do follow the older tech rules.

Who is your professional hero?

I don’t really have a hero. I find that people worship these tech entrepreneurs but I don’t like how they get to their position.

How did you end up working at Cleverbit?

I was juggling studying at University and working part-time. Once I finished my University course, I decided to work full time. I joined Cleverbit because it seemed the most down to earth, and both of the founders seemed really involved in the business.

Is there a project that you’ve worked on at Cleverbit that really stood out to you for whatever reason?

So far I’ve only worked on one large project; what’s really stood out to me is optimising the way the project sends out bulk emails for employees. I was given the task to try and speed up the process.

What’s the office culture like at Cleverbit?

We’re very multicultural, so I like the fact that we work together so well; everyone’s super friendly and chill.

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

Probably a chef!
