About Me

Senior Front-end Developer @ Netology-group

I'm a Software Engineer

I'm language agnostic and believe in choosing the right tool for the job. Love web dev (primarily Front-end) and game dev (Unity, UE4).

As my main interest and job, I am a Front-end (React/Redux) Developer with 7 years of professional experience in the web development.

What I do and what I have:

  • Strong knowledge of native JavaScript (including modern ES2015+), HTML/CSS3
  • Extensive experience with React (+ Redux/Webpack/redux-saga)
  • Convert Zeplin/Figma/Photoshop design to adaptive React-components (thanks to media queries)
  • Solid understanding of debugging using ChromeDevTools and other techniques
  • Confidently work with version control systems like SVN, Git (our company has all repositories at Github)
  • I like the terminal as well as GUI. Work in MacOS now (but also have experience with Ubuntu)
  • Use preprocessors (SASS, LESS)
  • Use NodeJS for some tasks
  • css-modules rocks 🤘
  • Understanding how web-technologies works (servers, network, etc.)
  • Understanding how to improve page loading speed
  • Experience with working according to the Scrum methodology (Atlassian JIRA for tickets) and using Gitflow Workflow (Atlassian Stash, Github)
  • Several years of effective remote work experience
  • I love to constantly learn and use new technologies in my work.

Also, I worked with various technologies and languages (C#, Bash, PHP, Ruby, Java (Android)SQL and other). Love to implement the awesome design ideas on codepen.

As a hobby, I create Unity-based games and assets for Unity. Also, learn UE4 (dream to create an AAA RPG).
