About me

Dedicated software engineer, having more than a decade of experience in software design and development. Creating software is my passion and my hobby. My biggest expertise is in C++, as well as Java/Python as secondary languages, separately or together. I supported legacy systems, implemented new systems, and designed them from scratch. I have experience both in enterprise and in startups, setting up development processes and workflows, Agile/Scrum, code review, Continuous Integration, and task tracking, providing technical leadership to a small team of Software Engineers, DevOps, and QAs.
