I'm a co-owner of Data Science UA, the company, which builds complete ecosystem around DS/ML/AI in Ukraine. We host large international conferences (>600 paritcipants), host events and workshops, provide SW development, consulting and recruitment services. We also build AI R&D centers for our clients.
Before Jun'2019 I was GM in Ring Ukraine (acquired by Amazon) since Mar'2017. I was running software development and QA production organization (around 250 engineers). I reported to CEO of Ring Ukraine.
Previously I was on different roles in large outsourcing company Luxoft (NASDAQ: LXFT) where I was leading projects, accounts and divisions up to 100 engineers. The most complex and challenging projects were with clients AMD, LGE, Ford, BMW etc. During 5 years in Luxoft I built accounts and teams from scratch, delivered projects, which are still used by billions of customers around the world, participated in business development activities, meetings and presentations with analysts from companies like Forrester, represented the company in international exhibitions and conferences (like IBC, MWC, Automobil Elektronik Kongress), etc. I have a deep understanding of SW development specifics and R&D (both in product company mode and outsourcing mode) in countries of Eastern Europe, U.S., India, China, South Korea and other APAC countries.
My main expertise is in the following areas:
- Embedded software and hardware
- High-performance computing
- Neural networks and Machine Learning
- Consumer Electronics (TVs, video surveillance)
- Agile and Scrum Project Management
Before Luxoft I was working for ±8 years for U.S. company called Mindspeed Technologies (spin off from Rockwell and Conexant), who developed complex multiprocessor system-on-chip solutions for voice over IP and video over IP. In this company I grew from engineer to project manager running distributed SW team (Ukraine, France, U.S. and China).
