    Alexander Petkov

    Alexander is the founder of MyFirstITJob - a company which helps junior developers find a quality job by clever marketing and 1 on 1 advice. He started programming actively 8 years ago and currently leads a team of backend engineers. After years of mentoring colleagues and teaching at university, Alexander knows why some developers get stuck in the underpaid "junior" phase while others establish their name and actually get chased by companies. Each material he commits online is typically supported by specific action steps readers can apply immediately. Because, as he says, "not acting today but leaving it for tomorrow is the root of all evil".
