Meet Ilken

Ilken Bahcecioglu

Full Stack Developer


Hi everybody, I’m Ilken.

I’m a chess player, online gamer and Encore’s new Full Stack Developer.

I am originally from Cyprus and left my beautiful country 8 years ago to study Software Engineering at the University of Manchester. After graduation I started to look for a less cloudy place and ended up in London honing my software development skills in various tech companies.

I am very excited to be part of a highly talented Encore team and can’t wait to deliver an amazing experience for our users!

Currently listening to: Linkin Park – In the End. LP’s Spotify radio is my favourite playlist while coding (in JS <3).
