Identity connects us, so Signal uses its ongoing Signalite Social Spotlight to feature our incredible employees for who they really are. The more you learn about them, the more you’ll begin to recognize what makes our favorite individuals unique. Can you identify?
Mile Milovanovic, Software Engineer. Former real estate appraiser (when the market was hot — then switched paths and completed Dev Bootcamp). Uncredited stunt driver in ‘Batman Begins.’
Age: 34. Residence: Rosemont, IL (“People say it’s a super-boring place, but since I work downtown everyday, it’s nice to be away from the city”). Listens to Sirius XM Radio’s “Chill Station” on his commute. Enjoys going to Costco in his free time.
Passions and interests: Growing fruits and vegetables (“I have a few fig and lemon trees”), trading cryptocurrency (“It’s consumed my life for the last year and half”), making sushi, watching ‘Game of Thrones.’
Dislikes: People who stare at their phone when they cross the street (“They’re like zombies… they don’t see anything around them”), cold brew coffee, poor train etiquette, seeing big chunks of onions in his food (“If they’re invisible, we’re good”), folding clothes (“I force myself. But I hate doing it”).
Would you rather wake up in the morning looking like a giraffe or a kangaroo? “I think I’d rather look like a giraffe. They just look friendlier and cuter, and I don’t think they would hurt people. I’ve seen kangaroos fighting people on YouTube.”
What is your favorite part about working at Signal? “Working with very smart people who are always willing to help at any time. I also like hanging out with my co-workers after work, too.”
