Jeengster Spotlight: Sapir Gabizon

In this edition of the “Jeengster Spotlight” series, we’re excited to introduce one of our amazing Fullstack Engineers, Sapir Gabizon!

Sapir is originally from Givatayim, Israel and currently lives in Tel Aviv. She served as a DBA in the Technology unit of the Intelligence force in the IDF (81). After her service, she started studying at the Technion in Haifa, Israel where she got her BSc in Computer Science. Sapir has been working at Jeeng since October 2020.

Let’s learn a bit more about Sapir!

1. What excites you the most about your role at Jeeng?

People are open minded, and everyone wants to hear your opinion — even if you’re not a part of their department. For example, Jon Stefansky asked our opinion on what could be added or improved on the sales side. It was really nice!

2. What advice do you have for someone also interested in that type of position?

Don’t be afraid of asking questions, but be sure that you ask the right ones. And you must be able to think outside the box in order to make an impact.

3. Top 5 tools you can’t live without

  • Stackoverflow
  • Github
  • Webstorm
  • Slack
  • Google Calendar

4. What are some of your hobbies?

  • Exercising 
  • Going to live concerts
  • Listening to podcasts about music

5. Favorite quote & why?

“If you’re offered a seat on a rocket ship, don’t ask what seat. Just get on.”  – Sheryl Sandberg

I love this quote because of what it means to me: If you have a chance to do something important that you can learn from, try it!

6. One piece of advice you’d give your younger self?

Calm down. Everything will be fine.

7. Superpower you’d choose & why?

To heal people just by touching them. I love helping people, and I wish I could do it more.

8. Favorite place you’ve ever traveled to?

New York City. I think it is the center of the world. Everything is happening there.

9. Biggest guilty pleasure

Watching Big Brother. 

10. What’s your favorite book & why

The Catcher in the Rye. It is something that you keep thinking about for a long time even after you finish reading it. And you might only understand what you read long after you finished reading it.

11. What’s at the top of your bucket list?

To fly to Italy (after the pandemic is under control).  I’ve been there but I miss the accent, the views, the food – everything. I love it there.

12. What animal best describes you & why?

My mother says “Bambi” because of my eyes.

13. What’s your hidden talent?

I know how to knit.
