    Senior Software Engineer

    Russia - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 3

    Software development is a handicraft for me, it's not a job, it's a full-time hobby. I do feel satisfied while placing code bricks into an application. I like Ruby for its human face, Rails - for its awesomeness, prefer CoffeeScript to brackets overwhelmed JavaScript. My layouts are readable as well thanks to HAML and SASS. I love modular and hate spaghetti code. I'm trying to touch and taste each new web technology coming out of betas (and even earlier). I've been working on really different projects: small to huge, one-page apps and large custom CMS, building from the scratch and diving into someone's legacy code. Inspiration and satisfaction is what I strive to leave after myself. I'm always open for communication and calm to a constructive critics. Having 8 years of overall software development experience, during last 4 years I work on Rails and during last year I am committed building Backbonish applications. Being involved in really exciting projects is what I always look for. I respect clients with Big Ideas pointing to change the world. With all my passion I'd like to assist you in building new generation web application.
