In this episode of the #AskASwimPro Show, we’re in Istanbul, Turkey with Max Bilan, our Senior iOS Developer at MySwimPro! Learn more about how he pairs his love of swimming with technology.

Meet Max: 

Hey everyone. My name is Max, and I’m an iOS engineer at MySwimPro. I’m working on everything related to iOS and watchOS apps as I’m a big Apple fan.

I love technology and enjoy building great user experiences. I live in Ukraine and have had great experiences working for many companies, in addition to freelancing. I grew up swimming throughout my school years, life, and have recently decided to get back into swimming

I love to travel, and my wife and I have visited 20+ countries together! I speak three languages and have a goal to learn to speak Spanish.

What Do You Love About Swimming?

For me, swimming is a high-stress reducer and allows me to relax, escape reality, and switch off from the rest of the world, from life problems. I forget about everything and just swim.

One of my happiest swimming memories is from when I got my first race certificate. I don’t remember what the place it was, and it didn’t matter, I just still remember the feeling that I did it!

What Is It Like Working at MySwimPro?

I’m excited to be on the team. We have a fantastic team, and I like the fact that we are building a product that is helping people. I love technology and love swimming, so it’s fantastic to connect what I love in life and do what I do best.

Bosphorus Cross-Continental Swim:

On July 21, 2019, our CEO & Co-Founder Fares Ksebati swam in the Bosphorus Cross-Continental Swim. This swim hosts over 2,400 swimmers every year, and is a lot of fun. A few of our team members from Europe joined Fares for the weekend and enjoyed spending time with our Community Members.
