Hailing from Turkey, via the United States, Ekin found her way to the Wild Wild West bright-eyed and ready to take on the world of web development.
It was here Ekin began developing her now world-class web development skills. Unbeknownst to her at the time, it was also the beginning of her journey toward Distl.
“While I was a student at UWA, I started my career as a dev by developing a web application solution for a local start up,” Ekin said. And that was just the beginning! After graduating, she continued building up her skills as a software engineer developing VR based learning products; quickly developing a well-rounded skillset.
“I think I have a diverse background in terms of the web technologies I have worked with so I can try to help the team on various types of issues.”
Ekin has been a welcome addition to the Distl family, and in her time here she’s made a huge impact already. With a strong desire to continuously want to improve, she lives and breathes our values by just being her.
“I would love to keep learning and growing as a developer,” Ekin explained.
Aside from her incredible work ethic and eternally positive outlook, she’s also blessed us with continuous fun and laughter. Never taking herself too seriously, she likes to think of herself as “that one comedy-relief character in the Marvel movies”.
After hours, Ekin enjoys writing romance novels (as if she wasn’t talented enough already!), playing Pokemon, online shopping and planning her next amazing set of nails.
We couldn’t be happier to have Ekin on board with us, joining a growing team of female web developers leading the way in some amazing website technologies.
“Distl is the first company I worked at where the majority of our development team are women! It’s absolutely great to see and I’m excited to have more diversity in the dev field in terms of any identity.”
