A seasoned professional with 10 years of experience in technical leadership and project management roles - responsible for designing, architecting and leading the development of large and mid-scale distributed systems in classic software (virtualization), cloud supply channel distribution (marketplace) and decentralized digital ledger.

      Throughout my career, I’ve been driving projects from ideas and proofs-of-concept to real-world solutions and platforms while mentoring both junior and senior engineers so that together we could implement world-class solutions like OpenVZ, Parallels Business Automation, Ingram Micro CloudBlue Connect and Chainstack.

Core competence

      Transforming business requirements into software solutions, platforms development technical management, projects from scratch or legacy monsters no matter what, heavy on distributed systems, mostly cloud-native. Relevant tech stack: Python (Flask/Django/Postgres), Go, Kubeflow, MongoDB. In love with kubernetes and GCP/Azure cloud providers.
