Technology entusiast and RubyOnRails fan.
I had the chance to work with Vlad on two software projects. His knowledge and experience in both networking and software development are really impressive, just ask him anything and he’ll always come up with a creative idea or an exhaustive explanation. He automatically rises the level of expertise (and of responsibility) in any team he is part of. Did I mention that he is also fast and very reliable? If you want to develop and grow a new, innovative project, he is the person (and the guarantee) you need in your team.
I've known Vlad for about 6 years now. We had the chance of working together a few times in the 3 years we've worked in the same company and collaborated a bit afterwards, too. Vlad always had very smart technical solutions and was very eager to put them to work. I would happily recommend him for any challenging work, he's bright, fast and reliable.
I know and work with Vlad for almost 1 year now. He is one of the brightest developers I know. Besides this I can tell you that he always surprises the ones around him with his ability to learn new things, understand and make others analyze new perspectives for their issues and be a close friend. He is one of the best people I've been working with until now. Still, I don't want to recommend him for you, cause I prefer having him in my team.
