My name is: Roie Cohen
My Job Title: Server Tech Lead at AutoCAD 360
What I actually do:
Together with our developers from Singapore, I’m working on the heart of AutoCAD 360: converting a DWG file to a unique format that can only be viewed and edited in AutoCAD 360 Web and Mobile.
As a veteran of AutoCAD 360 (almost 6 years!), I’m in charge of assigning the tasks, as well as controlling the progress of the team, making sure we hit the deadlines.
I also help the team improve the current code, as well as design and add new code to the system.
In addition, from a technical perspective, I help monitor problems that are reported by our users, and direct them to the relevant teams in AutoCAD 360. We work hard on addressing these issues and try to provide a solution as soon as we can.
Why do I like working here:
At AutoCAD 360 the options are unlimited: I started as an action-script/Flash developer, continued to the server side, performed a team leader role for Mobile and Web, and now I’m back to the server.
The flexibility in Autodesk is a huge advantage, but the biggest Like would go to my co-workers: fun and smart people, which I learn from each and every day. The work with US and Singapore is surely contributing a lot to my personal development and satisfaction.
What I like to do on my spare time:
On my spare time, I play soccer twice a week. I even play on Autodesk local and international teams!
I’ve recently completed my MBA degree in Tel-Aviv University, which means I need to find new hobbies! Any suggestions? :)
My favourite app is:
WhatsApp. Definitely WhatsApp. Nothing to add.
I also think that Waze is a fantastic traffic and navigation app, which simply makes life easy.
