I really like that the people in Inpsyde are very friendly and they like to communicate with each other. For me the environment will always be better compared to the ones where there is no communication. And it also helps me to work without stress.

In this article, we want to introduce Alper. He supports our Inpsyde Team as WordPress Engineer.

This is Alper Bulut

Alper lives in Istanbul, Turkey.

Alper Bulut

How would you describe yourself?

I am a curious and optimistic person. I love learning new things and discovering new places in each area.

Also, I can easily ignore something that is not good for me in my life. I believe that everything will come together in time.

I like to make travel plans and spend almost all of my savings on them – contrary to the traditions in Turkey.

How do you spend your spare time?

I like to travel to new places that I have never seen, especially the places that people lived a long time ago. I also like to visit museums that display historical items from this period.

I’m a very social person, that’s why I prefer to spend my free time with my close friends.

When I’m at home, I like to watch movies and TV series with my wife (favorite category: Dystopian movies), play video games with friends, and read books.

What is important to you?

Spending my time on valuable things is very important to me. Traveling around the world, having friends from there, and learning as much as I can while I am healthy and have the energy to do so are the most important things I can consider.

Alper’s way to Inpsyde

I have a bachelor’s degree in mathematical engineering from Yıldız Technical University. During my studies I also worked there as a web developer.

I then worked in different companies, but decided to only work remotely. Life in Istanbul without remote work is so hard.

So I started working for a company that offers a page builder product for WordPress. After working there for 2 years, I decided on Inpsyde. I am sure that it was a good decision for my entire career to join Inpsyde.

I want to become good at my job, so the place that I’m working has a big role in that. If you are a WordPress developer, then you probably know Inpsyde and its community. I also knew that if I  worked at Inpsyde, I could become better at my job. 

Also I thought that I will have a lot of colleagues from different countries. I think that’s excellent because I like getting to know different cultures and people. I believe in a limitless world!

Questions to Inpsyder Alper

We asked Alper a few personal questions to learn more about him:

What was the last book you read?

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson

What was the best advice you ever got? Who gave it to you?

“Come and join international companies!” That is what a friend of mine said because working as a developer in Turkey unfortunately doesn’t mean so much. By the way, it was Çağdaş who also works at Inpsyde…

What do you like most about your city?

What I like most about my city is that all of my friends are here.

What is the best meal you can cook on your own?

Noodles and quesadilla

You get stuck in the elevator for many hours and there’s a song playing in a continuous loop, what song would that be?
