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 Farcas, Chief Executive Officer at Cubic SoftLab

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.

Gabriel Olariu, Project Manager at Cubic SoftLab

Gabriel Olariu

Project Manager

Gabriel has a masters degree in Management from Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca. You get the impression he had to work in shifts to accumulate the work experience managing people and projects his CV mentions: in food industry, car rental services, transportation, medical software development, pharmaceutical products and IT support. Management is mostly about people, he will tell you, and how to help and motivate them to become the best. A rare combination of humor and no-nonsense during office hours, Gabi is an avid boardgame player and a bold fan of Carlos Santana.

Raul-Orlando Delan, Back-End Developer at Cubic SoftLab

Raul-Orlando Delan

Back-End Developer

Raul’s weakness is taking things apart: watches, engines and… software. There’s poetry in pistons and camshafts or - especially! - in server network protocols. He likes Python, C++ and C#; the latter, he wants to master “yesterday”, because back-end is where he feels at home. When he isn’t taking things apart (or putting them back together), Raul plays soccer, preferably as a midfielder; preferably in a Barcelona jersey.

Samuel Deak, Back-End Developer at Cubic SoftLab

Samuel Deak

Back-End Developer

According to Samuel, two formative experiences determined his choice of a career: solving a scrambled Rubik's cube all by himself when he was 11 and his first class in computer science when he was 15. Applying logic to problems is what he is still very much passionate about and C++ and C# is what he prefers using for this. Sami is an Alternosfera fan, has a good volleyball serve and can’t wait for the cold months when he can take out his snowboard.

Vlad-Florin Ciorba, Back-End Developer at Cubic SoftLab

Vlad-Florin Ciorba

Back-End Developer

Vlad was always very good with computers and math. He was 15 years when he bet his uncle that he could build him a better website; he won. While he studied Mathematics & Computer Science at BBU, Vlad realized he likes to work in C#, C++ and Python and decided back-end is where he belongs. Consequently, he got proficient with JavaScript,AngularJS, jQuery, PHP and gobbles up everything connected to server-side programming. Any art/humanities interests? Sure: recent BMW and Mercedes cars!

Daniel Șuia, iOS Developer Team Lead at Cubic SoftLab

Daniel Șuia

iOS Developer Team Lead

Daniel is as deliberate in his speech as he is in his programming or project management. “Luck favors the prepared mind” is something that stood him well over the years in various contexts: a finalist in the national Physics olympiad, a Theology seminarian or a Computer Science graduate. If Objective-C, Swift, Java, MySQL, Git, JIRA or Confluence were physical tools, his would be very well worn. When Daniel isn’t working (or parenting), he likes to play chess, watch action movies, help as volunteer at his church or dream his (future) walnut orchard.

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.

George Toldas, Android Developer at Cubic SoftLab

George Toldaș

Android Developer

George loves to tinker with the hardware at least as much as he likes to tweak software. As a teenager he was constantly taking apart, upgrading and put together his computer; inevitably, this required some coding skills as well. When smartphones started making waves he was sold on the enormous potential they have. One thing led to another and he is now studying for a degree in Automation and Computer Science at UTCN. His acquaintance with C expanded, he got proficient in C# and Java and now he is learning Node.js and Ruby. When he can spare a minute he loves to play video games at the toughest setting; arguably, there is nothing better than Final Fantasy XIV.

Cosmin Magdas, Front-End Developer at Cubic SoftLab

Cosmin Magdaș

Gabriel Grijincu, Front-End Developer at Cubic SoftLab

Gabriel Grijincu

Front-End Developer

Gabriel “googled” himself into web development and he even knows exactly what started him on his path: a friend showing him a website he was in the process of building. The website seemed to Gabriel a bit clumsy and he started thinking about ways to make it better. Nowadays, Gabriel is proficient in JavaScript, C++ and PHP and he knows what he wants to do in life. He dreams of making someday a framework able to duke it out with heavy-hitters like ReactJS and AngularJS. Whenever he can, Gabriel loves to hang around horses, take care of them and ride as much as he can.

Flaviu Mates, UI/UX Designer at Cubic SoftLab

Flaviu Mateș

UI/UX Designer

Flaviu had various intense relationships over time - HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, JQuery, etc. Nowadays he gets along famously with web design, but not to the point of a 'monogamous' relationship: variety is too tempting.

Mircea Chetan, Web Developer at Cubic SoftLab

Mircea Chetan

Web Developer

In high school, Mircea was thinking about heading toward a career in mathematics; being required to build a website for a school project proved to be such fun that he decided to switch to Computer Science. He breezed through W3schools and Codecademy courses in a single summer and started worked as a junior web developer as a second year undergraduate. Since then, he focused on e-commerce web development, gaining valuable experience and expertise with OpenCart and Magento. His next goal: mastering Zend Framework. When he is relaxing, soccer is foremost on his mind: watching Ibrahimovic score, trying his own reflexes on the field or managing virtual teams in FIFA.

Cuibus Marius-Traian, Quality Assurance at Cubic SoftLab

Cuibus Marius-Traian

Quality Assurance

Marius is a graduate of Management and Business Administration at BBU that didn’t like his prospects on the job market and decided to learn testing and really nail it. Started with some basic Java and is ploughing now through JavaScript because this will allow him to upgrade to complex automation testing. Marius has this crazy idea that testing is somehow crucial if you want to launch a quality website, app or software. Marius is always there when it comes to sports or getting together and having fun; promise him a good Eddie Murphy or Jim Carrey comedy and he is your buddy for life.

A quintessential idea junkie and scatterbrain with a fair analytical mind, he managed to transition to SEO and Marketing without much difficulty. Taking too much time when it comes to researching things out, he is nonetheless fast when it comes to brainstorming. Adrian likes to read, listen to podcasts and talk about ideas in science, history, philosophy and religion, doing a bit of gardening and raising rabbits.
