David Fun Friday #1: Meet Tomás Beck Senart

For our first Fun Friday of the week please help me welcome to the SoundCloud team, straight from Portugal – Tomas Senart! Listen to his audio message below!

Saying Hi by Senart


Sup?

Just arrived home from the office. An unexpected storm got me soaked! I should definitely check weather reports from time to time.

What’s your role? What do you like about it so far?

The title is “Back-End Developer” and I am currently on the API Team but I am pretty experienced in the full web stack. So I will probably be hopping on different projects and roles with time. I love that I quickly got proficient with the code and am already deploying a bunch of stuff tomorrow!

Coolio! Can you let us know where you are from? How did the re-location work out for you?

I’m from Lisbon, Portugal which has lovely beaches, weather and a general good vibe. Relocation was a total adventure to me. Just left (almost) everything behind and came here. Well… By the third day I had a registered address, phone number, bank account and room. :-)

What kind of shows do you like going to?

I am a clubs guy (and a DJ). So everything that involves good electronic/dance music has my potential presence.

What do you like about Berlin so far?

I love the vibe, the cultural diversity, the transportations and the nightlife is awesome!

Any favourite music on SoundCloud right now?
Connan Mockasin – Forever Dolphin Love (Erol Alkan Rework) Radio Edit [Phantasy] by Erol Alkan

and

Villa Nah – Running On (Kebacid Remix) by Turbo Recordings

So what are a few reasons why someone should join SoundCloud, or our team in particular?

I’ve never been in such a working environment. The creative feeling is just unbelievable. The people here are so intelligent and innovative it is ridiculous. Perfect sound and technology combo.

Any fun facts about yourself that you can share?

I landed on Berlin the 13th of April and got a room on Alexanderplatz on the 15th. How? Going to O2. I got there and asked the guy for a mobile plan. He gave me that and room in Alexanderplatz. Yeah… I was that lucky.

That sounds great and I am glad you have had so much luck in Berlin! You can follow Tomas on SoundCloud and Twitter!
