I started my career as a software developer, but quickly switched to management because of good communication skills. In 2003 my brother Victor and I started our own software outsourcing company Palmosters Development Team, in which I was CEO for six years. As our company grew, I was engaged in all kind of management issues – HR, project management, budgeting, etc. In 2008 Palmosters DevTeam (rebranded as Mobile Effort) was sold to QuickOffice company. In 2009-2011 I worked for several IT companies as Development and Administrative Director.
My knowledge of a starting up software development companies can be very useful for launching new branches and offices. I’m extremely loyal employee and I will be a valuable addition to the growing company.
Building professional and experienced development teams (PHP, Ruby, mobile development)
CEO of UGE GmbH hired me to create the Kharkov branch of the company. At the beginning, it was a small branch with PHP-oriented development, but later we also created Ruby and Mobile (Bada, Android) development teams. After the successful completion of these tasks I left the company because the goals of my contract were achieved.

We started Palmosters DevTeam in 2003 (in September 2007 it was renamed as Mobile Effort). It was a small garage team of developers and we were mostly engaged in the PalmOS software development. After several interesting projects we earned a good reputation as reliable and experienced mobile software developers. After a year of work we expanded our staff to ten employees.
