Meet Creative Engineer, Taha Bilge
Taha

Hello?

Hayley

How are you doing?

Taha

I'm doing good.

Hayley

I so enjoyed our conversation last time and I would love to hear where you were before you joined invisible and why you chose to come here.

Taha

It was a weird point because I wanted to give the academic life a pause. While I was conducting science I wasn't able to express my creativity, I wanted to build things because it was fun to do, and it was a good outlet for me. It was something that wasn't to be captured by just words. Or by just numbers. So at that point I was thinking about maybe starting a project, something very new. It will probably fail, but I will learn how to build something out there in the world.

I wasn't thinking of working at a company who will treat me as an engineer and nothing else. I want to be a part of what the company wanted, how the company would conceptualize that, operationalize that. I'm not cut for the regular job, I think. That's where I was before joining.

Invisible approached me as if I was all around engineer. And ,at that point, I wasn't an engineer actually. I was just wearing a hat of engineer when needed. Anyway, I see the passion of creating things in people at Invisible. It's it's not just carrying out instructions, or doing tasks that are given. That was quite clear and that caught my attention. It made me think about being at Invisible.

Hayley

What have you liked most about being here?

Taha

So I was expecting some hardships for the first several months because this is the first time I am identifying myself in the role of an engineer. Last month was better than anticipated because I'm making progress and the channels of communications are open. I could voice my perspective— people will listen to it. People will give feedback. People will integrate their viewpoint and something wonderful will come up

Hayley

What excites you most about what we're building?
