Sergey Zakharov

Who I am

I am a fullstack developer with more than six years of web development experience and around ten years in software development in general. I have developed, deployed, and maintained a lot of public and in-house web projects and tools from scratch, both as a solo developer and as a part of a team. I've hired, educated and managed developers and reviewed their work. I'm able to quickly learn new technologies and concepts. I have good communication skills. I have worked directly with clients, participated in every stage of a project — from the initial idea to the deployment and final presentation, — and have directed the development process of complex projects. I have co-authored and lead a web design and development course. I have a varied work experience: a corporation, a research institute, an educational non-profit, a media, a design agency, an ML-startup. I was a co-founder of a compact web design and development studio.

I enjoy purposeful use of technologies, craftsmanship, and beauty. I value effectiveness, sustainability, and culture. I tend to think of a project as a whole and like to work across the stack, participating in the frontend and backend development, database and infrastructure management, as well as collaborating closely with clients, developers, designers, and other team members, making sure the project meets its purpose.

Russian is my native language and I speak English fluently. I have a bachelor’s degree in Business Informatics from the Higher School of Economics and have taken online courses on the algorithm design, functional programming and system design.

I'm up for collaboration (although not for hire)

If you want to collaborate with me on something or have a project or an idea you'd like to discuss please write me an e-mail.
