Olga has been working as a developer since 1997. Her first job was developing C and C++ code for the Polish army. Later on, she continued to work for Polish public sector customers and started developing in Java. Around 2011, she once again joined the Polish army and started developing applications for low-power devices used in combat vehicles. In 2013, she joined HP (later HPE, then DXC) and continued to develop business systems on both back-end and front-end sides.
