About

I am a professional web developer. For 16 years of work, I have been engaged in a variety of tasks: backend, frontend, performance optimization, vector graphics, test automation, processes configuration, team management. Therefore, I have a clear idea of what product development is from different sides, I can speak the same language with different people, and also quickly switch to another technological stack.

You can count on me when it comes to writing code that is easy to maintain; code that will help create a product, users enjoy interacting with.

Clear and efficient processes, as well as convenient tools, are very important to me. Therefore, most likely I will be very likely to suggest improvements (or, if everything is perfect, praise the managers).

It is very important for me to do something that improves people’s lives. That’s why I’ll do my best so that together we can make a difference.
