Employee Spotlight - Serkan Bilgi

Our Employee Spotlight series will highlight a different member of the SmartSimple crew every week. Take some time to get to know the wonderful and diverse team behind the SmartSimple platform! 

Serkan Bilgi is a Senior Business Analyst and began working at SmartSimple in May 2011 (as an intern, FYI!). This week, we spoke with him about his favourite part of working for SmartSimple, his favourite album, and how important music is to him.

Serkan as a graduate!
Subject matter expert tip:
Listen to your clients and ask questions. Always look for methods to be more efficient - avoid the quick-and-dirty method. More importantly, share the knowledge with your teammates.

What is your favourite part about working for SmartSimple?
Every day I get to solve the problems of people who are making the world a better place by funding research and nonprofits. As a cherry on top, I get to work with a diverse, friendly, and dynamic team. I also get to see the company grow as everyone contributes constantly.

What are your hobbies?
Composing music, shooting and editing photos and videos, playing tennis, and a newly found one: collecting vinyl.

What is your favourite movie or book?
Movie: Back to the Future 2.
Book: Samarkand by Amin Maalouf.
Most importantly, my favourite album: Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd.

What is the one thing you couldn't live without?
Family - who, ironically, are all back home (in Turkey).

Random fact about you that most people wouldn't know:
I've played the drums for 15 years, recorded an album back home, and have played on national TV.

Personal quote:
"Us and them / And after all, we're only ordinary men," - Us and Them by Pink Floyd.
