Who you are?
Taavi Koosaar, software architect, software developer, process and tooling dude, consultant. I was born in Estonia, finished my degrees in computer science in Estonia, and thereafter moved to live and work in Sweden. Right now I work in product development in a small company in Sweden. I like traveling, adventures, training, diving, tennis and the latest adventure I am embarking on is becoming a father.
What makes you “tick”?
There’s a bunch of things that make me tick and among them software development, technology, challenges in life and work, leadership and initiative, sci-fi/fantasy books, films, series, my family. Technology, software development and infrastructure have been a passion and hobby since I was young and I’m one of the lucky who can say that my work is also my hobby.
Where do you live?
I live in Stockholm, Sweden in the cities IT suburb.
Where is the place you call home?
Where ever I live and my family is. I adapt quite fast. However Estonia will always have a special place in my heart ;)
Why are you active in the Rangers program?
To contribute back to the community, share what I have learned over the years, get new knowledge/experience through projects and meet interesting people.
See “What makes you tick!”
What is the best Rangers project you worked in and why?
I’ve been in a few projects. I really enjoyed the Integration Platform project and now I’m in the Merging and Branching Guidance team and I’m enjoying that as well. It’s challenging and I get to share and discuss topics that I find interesting.
