Rechat AI Innovators: Engineer Levente Kiraly

This week we have the pleasure of chatting with Rechat Senior Frontend Engineer Levente Kiraly, based out of Budapest. He has been working as a developer for more than 12 years, and has a passion for biking when he’s not busy coding. He even had a stint as a semi-pro cyclist!

“When I’m not glued to my screen or out pedaling away, you’ll probably catch me tinkering with synthesizers, diving deep into that world of music creation,” he added.

What brought you to Rechat and what intrigued you about your role/work here?

Levente: Well, it’s a bit of a winding road, actually. I was previously with a real estate agency in New York when, unfortunately, our team got hit with layoffs due to some tough circumstances. Luckily, our CEO had a solid connection with Shayan over at Rechat, and that’s how I found my way here.

Now, here’s the funny part. My first scheduled call with Ramin (Mousavi), well, let’s just say it didn’t quite go according to plan. Some time zone gremlins got into the mix, and the scheduling app we were using played a little prank on us. But once we sorted that out and had our real first chat, I was hooked. Ramin painted this exciting picture of the product and the challenges they were tackling, and I didn’t need much convincing—I jumped headfirst into this new journey with Rechat.

What is your title and what does your job look like on a day-to-day basis?

In my role as a senior frontend developer at Rechat, my day typically begins by delving into the requirements outlined by the product team. From there, I embarked on a journey of collaboration, working closely with designers, backend developers, and other team members to ensure that all components fit seamlessly together.

Throughout the day, I’m focused on crafting an exceptional user experience for our real estate platform. This involves not only writing code but also participating in discussions, providing feedback, and troubleshooting any issues that arise. My goal is to guarantee that every click, swipe, and interaction feels intuitive and effortless for our users.

What is the most challenging or exciting project you are working on right now, and why?

Right now, my main focus is on enhancing the Marketing Center within our platform. We’re gearing up to revolutionize how users engage with the entire platform, but I can’t spill the beans just yet—stay tuned!

In addition to this exciting project, I’m also handling maintenance and bug fixing duties to keep everything running smoothly.

What has been your role as it relates to the development/implementation of Lucy?

Initially, I played a key role in planning and laying down the frontend foundations for Lucy. As the project progressed, my involvement shifted to more of a supervisory role. I focused on reviewing code to ensure alignment with our standards and values.

However, as my responsibilities grew elsewhere, my active participation in Lucy’s development lessened. While I’m still available for consultation, I’m not actively engaged in its ongoing development.

What is the most exciting part of working in AI?

It’s inspiring to be part of a community where everyone is constantly pushing their limits, fueling breakthroughs and bringing futuristic concepts to life.

What is the most challenging part of working in AI?

This entails keeping oneself updated with the latest trends, tools, and methodologies, and being agile enough to adapt to rapid advancements. AI is a rapidly evolving field, and maintaining relevance requires continuous learning and a willingness to embrace new technologies and approaches.
