Behind the Glasses – Yireda Jilili

Each month, we’ll be interviewing one of our fab employees here at Whereoware. For September, we get to know Yireda Jilili our Digital Project Coordinator, a little better.


What’s your name?  Yireda Jilili
Job title:  Digital Project Coordinator


Favorite food: Pizza – as long as there are peppers on it!
Hidden talents: I am GREAT at thumb wrestling and Mercy; mainly because I can bend my fingers all the way back.
If there were a movie of my life, I’d be played by: Emma Watson for sure, more because I’m obsessed with her instead of any big resemblance. Although, my stunt double would be played by Jennifer Lawrence (I’m not as graceful as Emma Watson).
One item you would bring with you to a desert island and why: Pot to boil water, hunting equipment, hammock, a library… oh one item? Yikes… I bring three suitcases to a weekend trip, so I do not think I am capable of one item.
In a zombie apocalypse, my weapon of choice would be: A fully stocked ship- these zombies can’t swim, right?


Facebook or Twitter: Can I opt out for Instagram?  
iOS or Android:   iOS
‘Nerd’ or ‘Geek’:   Geeky nerd?
Star Wars or Star Trek?  Star Wars – slight chance I still dabble in the art of lightsabers (sound effects and all).

 What’s the best part about working at Whereoware? 

I don’t know where to start! I think it’s the brilliant and supportive minds that surround me. Whereoware has me working harder, innovating more, and thinking in different perspectives because everyone around me is so inspiring. Better yet, Whereoware gives everyone a platform to collaborate and share great ideas, allowing us to teach and learn from each other. The learning opportunities are endless, and the support is strong. Not to mention, Whereoware provides a very fun work environment.
