Our Team

Beyond "Us, the company" there is "Us, the people".
For us Cubic SoftLab isn't everything. It's just our workplace. Just a workplace where we drink great coffee. Just a place where we eat together. Just a place where our weird sense of humour makes sense.
Between us, sometimes it is also the place where our family members come looking for us: checking to see whether we are working or just having fun 9 to 12 hours a day...

Cornelia Fărcaș

Chief Executive Officer

Web development and its various components was one of the first things she mastered. Project management she learned on her own and on the job. Unrelenting when it comes to work, flexible when it comes to people and generous when it comes to office pizza.

Viorela Alina Gligan

Back-End Developer

Viorela is very firm about two things: logical rigour and the nature & environment protection. The first crystallized gradually into a passion for coding in C# and using SQL. Making beautiful logical structures is something she finds quite satisfying. The second makes her thirst for new places to visit on this amazing planet, gets her angry when people mistreat animals. Shy at the beginning, Vio is nonetheless a team centered persona through and through: that’s why she loves volleyball and that’s why she works best with others when coding.

Mihai Chis, iOS Developer at Cubic SoftLab

Mihai Chiș

iOS Developer

Mihai has a masters degree in Computer Science from the Technical University of Cluj Napoca. If there is one thing that represents him is this: navigating “impossible” off-road trails and reaching difficult destinations. When Mihai purchased an iPhone 3G and got instantly hooked: making apps was then the equivalent of off-roading! Mastering Xcode, iOS, Objective-C, Foundation, UIKit, Swift followed naturally because you can’t go on a mobile adventure unprepared. When he isn’t developing apps you will most probably find him off-roading (literally, this time) somewhere in the mountains of Maramures, Romania or maintaining a positively huge network of friendships and acquaintances.

Darius Blajan, Front-End Developer at Cubic SoftLab

Darius Blăjan

Front-End Developer

Darius doesn’t talk much and is one of those persons that can easily fool you into thinking he is somewhat... slow. Once you get to know him, you realize he is just a very deliberate guy and very difficult to thwart once he sets on a course. As a student, he started with C/C++, then decided JavaScript is a better investment of his time and didn’t let go until he mastered it. Now he works on adding Angular, React and maybe Ember to the list of his skillsets. When he isn’t coding, Darius follows his other major passion: music and sports.

Loves sitcoms (The Big Bang Theory!), collects good comedians and is a diehard fan of U Cluj.
