Career Profile

Total IT work experience: 14 years.

My first big project was development of MES and WMS systems at a Samsung Electronics production factory in Kaluga region, Russia. It was done as several intranet websites with an active usage of barcode scanners, barcode printers and RFID equipment. It took a team of five developers 3 years to fully develop a MES, WMS and an intranet system for local staff.

Then I’ve joined netPrint.ru as a senior developer and quickly became backend lead in charge of a MES system for printing workflow. My team successfully completed several tasks, such as: print optimization (minimizing waste, optimal image placement), refactoring a legacy multilanguage system into several major components within a single technology stack.

Worked at Mail.Ru Group - one of the largest IT companies in Russia, in a food delivery project - Delivery Club. My responsibilities were: creating new and modifying existing microservices.

Took a major part in a project involving refactoring a legacy CRM system for real estate companies in Switzerland - RealForce Solutions SA, into a modern stack application with advanced property search mechanisms and complete tests coverage.
