I’m a Full Stack Developer living in Stockholm.
I work as a Full Stack Software Engineer at Spotify in Stockholm 🇸🇪. Before Spotify, I was working at Booking.com 🇳🇱 and Art. Lebedev Studio, the most famous design agency in Russia 🇷🇺. I have had the privilege of working alongside creative colleagues on setting up trends in web design as well as on innovative products, such as Optimus Popularis Keyboard.
During my free time I’m working on my own projects, such as oldams.nl, collection of historical photos of Amsterdam on a map (product hunt) and traveling around the world. I used to race downhill mountain biking in Russia. Also, played World of WarCraft in a hardcore guild (Imperator Mar’gok World Top 19, EU 12, Garrosh Hellscream (10) World Top 14, EU 10, Ra-den (10) West 33, EU 26).
I grew up in Penza, Russia, a small city 600 kilometers away from Moscow. I’ve started working back to school days; my first job was supporting local community services and improving some, writing in PHP, C++ and Java (thanks to very hardcore programming classes in school). When Internet started to grow, there was no more need for local community services, so I’ve started doing web development and eventually got hired by Art. Lebedev Studio and moved to Moscow.
