I am developer, a software engineer to be precise. My strongest skills are troubleshooting algorithms in Spark and designing data flow throughout distributed systems. I can code in Scala, Java, C++, Python and many other programming languages in massively parallel data processing environments.
I started my career in early 1990s as an intern coder at a Research Institute of Information Technologies and Computer Science in Novosibirsk, the "science capital" of the Russian Federation. Later working as a web developer I specialized in web technologies. Working at a bank as a System Analyst, I gained skills in financial industry and microchip bankcard processing technologies.
For the last couple of decades I have lived in the USA and worked as a software engineer. (See CV/Resume for details.)
Currently I'm working on a large scale financial data interchange project at Refinitiv, a transnational information technology giant.
I'm fascinated by latest breakthroughs in artificial intelligence and machine learning. My passion is in harnessing tech to extract value from seemingly random data although data privacy concerns me as well.
