H8: Hello, can you give us a little introduction to who you are and what you do? Where do you live? What do you love about it?
Dušica Lukić: I am a mother of a 3-year old girl and Product Manager and Co-founder of Joberty. Even though my title says that I should be in charge of product development part, since I am also a co-founder I wear multiple hats within our organization. I live in Belgrade, Serbia. During my life I have lived in India, Turkey, Czech Republic, Germany and the USA. I also travelled a lot, but I always knew I will eventually come back home (to Belgrade, Serbia).
H8: What are you working on just now that you are most excited about doing?
DL: I am building a platform for developers that should help them in making better career choices. Joberty offers anonymous employer reviews, jobs, discussions about career related topics with other developers. Besides building the product I am also building a company together with other 3 co-founders of Joberty.
H8: What has been your favorite moment on the project so far? What are you looking forward to the most in the future of the project?
DL: My favorite moment was finishing MVP and getting the first user feedback. That’s when you are nervous and hoping for the best 🙂 . Similar moment happened just now when we launched new version of the product Joberty 2.0. I am looking forward to the future and to see where it will take us. I am eager to learn about new markets and new possibilities. Also I am looking forward to see how the product will look like years from now when all the trends in user experience domain change.
H8: How do you prefer to start your day?
DL: Business wise – First checking the emails and calendar for that day. Then checking Jira and everyone in the team if everything is going well.
H8: What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend? Any story to share?
DL: Weekends are for the family. Usually we are playing in the park. If I have time for myself, I would go to a studio where I practice pottery making skills.
H8: What’s your go-to productivity trick?
DL: With time I have learned that when I don’t feel productive I shouldn’t put pressure on myself to become productive. I think we should listen to ourselves and our body. Usually there are times during the day when I am the most productive so I tend to use those times in the best way possible. Inspiration for me for doing something usually comes from movement (either physical movement when we travel e.g., go for a run or similar or when we shift our focus or put our minds into different context).
H8: What’s the best advice you were ever given? Who was it from?
DL: “Živ čovek sve stiže” from my grandmother.
H8: If you could share one piece of advice for those who are just starting to create?
Dušica Lukić: Dream big and dare to make your dreams come true.
