Hello! I'm Iakov. I'm a software engineer. It's both a job and an occupation. I'm passionate about software, open-source technologies, and making computers do stuff.
I've spent most of my career working as a web developer in the B2B area. In the last few years, I've been focused on an agile leadership role, helping my engineering teams align with business goals.
I was born in Yekaterinburg, Russia. I moved to Czechia when I was 19, and I still live in Prague. Apart from tech, I love slow heavy metal and artsy video games.
I've taken a new challenge as a software architect, building a cloud-native platform for the Scandinavian automotive industry. My main responsibility was to kickstart a greenfield application development, build a robust cloud infrastructure and architecture, and to document it all.
I moved to become a PO and direct manager of a team of 5 people. My primary goal was to improve the Ataccama Platform-as-a-Service and the general Cloud platform capabilities of our software.
I've risen to the opportunity to become the leader of the Front-end team. I've been in charge of growing the front-end team, as well as maintaining a consistent technical vision.
I was hired as one of the first internal front-end developers. I've worked on knowledge transfer and handover of the prototype from external consultants to Ataccama employees.
I have worked on a project offering website development to small businesses in Eastern Europe. I used WordPress extensively, developing a custom theme for it, and integrating it with other tools.
I spent a lot of time working on smaller web dev jobs. An occasional website for a friend of a friend.
I've spent most of my career doing this. Naturally, I consider this is my top skill.
Applying my programming expertise to automate repetitve work and scale in a meaningful way.
I use my soft skills and domain knowledge to align developers with business goals. I've sucessfully applied Agile methodology to manage team work as well as my own projects, and I believe it's one of the best ways to approach software work.
I've done it once or twice for commercial work.
Very basic understanding, but I'd like to learn more.
