Technical Lead

What is your role at VMRay?
I was one of the first employees at VMRay and had many different tasks in the beginning. At the moment, I am head of the “Detection” team: we develop our VTI engine and are responsible for detecting malware behavior patterns. In addition, we prepare the analysis results and associated graphics so that they can be made available to the user in an understandable and intuitive way.

What does a typical working day look like for you?
My day usually starts with breakfast together with colleagues in the office. I usually work on my Scrum tickets, mainly implementing new features for malware analysis. From time to time there are also meetings, where we discuss new projects or existing problems and see how they can be solved. After work, some of us regularly play foosball or darts in our social room.

Describe your team.
I work with different teams here: for example, I spend one week with a colleague where we’re trying to solve a problem with a specific type of malware then I spend the following week with another colleague where we work together to design a new feature for our software. It’s all very dynamic and challenging at the same time, because the malware authors keep coming up with something new.
