Malachy Egan

Malachy joined the Zivtech team in July of 2017 as a technical documentation specialist. Prior to that Malachy worked as a cheese monger, cheese maker, illustrator and designer (not necessarily in that order). It was when he was updating his illustration portfolio site that he first became interested in web development.

What’s your favorite thing about working at Zivtech?

I love working with a group of dedicated professionals who are knowledgable and totally willing to share their expertise in the interest of getting the job done. 

What’s the best part about working on a small team?

Working on a project within the structure of a small team is great because you are exposed to lots of different aspects of web design and development. From wireframes to development to site building and testing there is always something new to learn. 

What is a typical day at Zivtech like for you?

Every day starts with a morning meeting. For me that means a conference call with my teammates who are based all over the world - Minsk, London, New York. After going over the status of my current workload, I prioritize the day's work. I'll begin testing features and gathering screenshots and supporting documentation. Then I'll begin outlining and writing the technical documentation for whatever feature the team is working on at the moment. I'll usually end up fielding questions and editing older documentation throughout the day as well.

What are you happiest doing outside of work?

I love spending time with my wife and kids. A lot of my time is spent in the kitchen baking bread and making family meals. Late at night I'm usually in my studio working on illustrations (about food).

What's the coolest place you've traveled?

Terschelling, which is a Dutch island in the North Sea. It has a dune covered, windswept landscape dotted with some WWII-era bunkers that were later used by hippies for parties in the 70s. I stayed in a cabin on a sheep farm. Morning coffee with fresh sheep milk is really, really good. 

What are two things you can't live without?

Bread and coffee.
