SoundCloud Fun Friday: Meet Omid Aladini

This week’s Fun Friday interview is featuring one of our new developers, Omid Aladini! Learn more about Omid below!

What’s up?

Everything is going fine!

Where are you from?

I’m from Iran! I lived in Tehran until about two years ago then I moved to Frankfurt.

Why’d you choose Frankfurt?

I was studying machine learning related things in a computational neuroscience lab there.

How’d you end up at SoundCloud?

I knew that after graduation I would like to spend my time working with the Internet and music, so I looked for places where I could bring these two closer together, and that was SoundCloud!

And, what are you doing for SoundCloud exactly?

“Back-end developer” is the title so I work in the Architecture team.

What kind of music are you into and why?

It’s hard for me to talk in terms of music genres but I can name bands and musicians that I like. A few of them are: Pixies, David Bowie, Radiohead, Beirut, Portishead.

Here’s some other stuff:

Lail Arad – Everyone’s Moving to Berlin

Sandra Kolstad – Freudian slip

Moby – Pale Horses

What do you like about Berlin so far?

There is always something interesting to do here, like small concerts and performances.

And what do you like the most about SoundCloud so far?

The work is quite interesting and the people are amazing!

Also, it’s much easier to tell people what I do for a living now :-)

Can you give us a fun fact about yourself?

When I was born, I had two front teeth already!



That’s our new back-end developer, Omid Aladini! Say ‘hi’ to him on Twitter @omidaladini or on SoundCloud!
