Senior Full-Stack Software Developer
During my career I worked with various technologies on different platforms from kernel drivers for Windows to single-page applications in TypeScript. I love working in a team and I believe that communication is one of the most important parts of software development (after cache invalidation and naming things, of course).
Working in the STM publishing technology division of Springer Nature. Creating new products to deliver scientific knowledge to millions every day.
I started from the very beginning, before the official release and was involved in development of almost every major feature on the platform (either in form of design discussions, code reviews or writing code).
Provided support in hiring tech candidates by interviewing from a cultural and technical point of view. Helped to grow the tech team from 3 developers to 3 teams of 5 people in each. Was helping junior developers in their professional growth.
Being among the first developers in a young startup requires you to work in different areas. I was designing and shaping the platform from a technical perspective, defining best engineering practices and improving them continuously, setting up infrastructure, continuous integration and deployment processes.
Of course none of it was done on my own - I worked with great people and all of it is the result of our team effort.
I was working on several Rails-based websites of various size and complexity for clients all around the world. After a year I've been promoted to team leader, so besides building up my web development skills I learned a lot about agile practices and managing teams. I participated in the development of company’s style guides and project templates, was speaking on our weekly meetups about new technologies which could help the team in everyday work.
Built various web scrapers and parsers using Ruby and Clojure.
Designed and built several networking apps for Windows in a team of 2 developers. Was responsible for maintaining the core part of applications and mentoring junior developers.

Diploma: Statistical properties of cryptographic primitives.
Regularly participating in workshops for beginners.
Delivered a course of lectures in Kazan Federal University on SaaS and Ruby On Rails for 3 year graduate students.

I have 5+ years of experience working on dozens of Ruby on Rails apps. I've built several of them from the ground up to the production release, worked on many legacy codebases and know what steps to make in order to gradually improve them.
Proponent of TDD, SOLID principles and programming style guides (yes, I've even written custom cops for Rubocop).
Infrastructure Engineering, DevOps practices:
Worked on many different deployment stacks/services: AWS, Heroku, DigitalOcean, EngineYard.
Good knowledge of Chef recipes for setting up a server for deployment of web applications written in Ruby or Clojure.
Experienced in managing AWS infrastructure – writing Chef recipes for OpsWorks, Ruby scripts to automate repetitive tasks, Terraform definitions to set up an infrastructure from scratch.
Can set up various CI systems to automate the development process.
