As soon as he could reliably use his hands, Stiv enjoyed taking his toys apart (read: completely destroy) to see how they worked (read: because it was fun). It's unclear if this has anything to do with his choice of becoming a software engineer, since he also considered pursuing a degree related to fine arts or civil engineering /architecture. In 2015 he attained a B.Sc. in Computer Science from Jacobs University Bremen and has been exclusively dealing with computers since then. Before joining Cliqz he worked as a software engineer in Albania. In his spare time he likes starting new projects despite the ones he was currently working on were nowhere near being finished.
