I am experienced manager. I have started my own e-shop 4 years ago, so I have a good experience of being a "Client". I know programming basics (Delphi, Visual Basic, VBA) and have some experience in Databases. I fluently speak English, German and Russian. Today I'm working as web-development project manager (coordination and translation). Now I'm working with eCommerce and eShops revising and maintenance projects, for example Prestashop system enhancements.

Experience designing and building n-tier architectures bridging multiple technologies. Working knowledge of many languages and frameworks, and easily adaptable to new ones. Ability to customize and build complex UIs, including the creating of custom controls. Proven leader and mentor of a combination of on and off shore resources. • Designed and implemented a system to automatically handle relationships between combo box values • Led a team in implementing large scale refactoring on the legacy VB6 layers of code to significantly reduce memory leaking and cross-threading. • Led the efforts to design and implement several minor to medium scoped architectural redesigns at the UI level to improve customer experience. • Designed and implemented a process to asynchronously load several parts of the UI at once using jquery and ajax to improve customer experience. • Successfully worked with a panel of internal staff members and high level customer technical staff to boost overall confidence in the performance and stability of the product after our plans were implemented. • Designed and implemented a system to capture all user transactions across the system in order to later replay them back as means of diagnosing issues and testing out performance and stability improvements under realistic user load. • Reviewed and recommended infrastructure based improvements that would allow for better customer experience and system stability. • Determined maximum user load on a per server basis for acceptable customer experience through customized load testing. • Led a team of resources in the process of converting remaining legacy VB6 code up to C# for a related product. • Participated in the process of implementing a high level architectural design being rolled out by the office of the CTO in a project to integrate branched off variations of a product into a single unified system. • Refactored several object libraries to enforce proper coding standards and resolve potential performance and load related issues. • Led a group of resources on larger scale performance testing and helped determine acceptable timing metrics. • Wrapped up several customer required enhancements that were in danger of becoming critical. • Designed and implemented a set of custom code exits using .NET Reflection that could easily be applied to any part of the UI with minimal refactoring to allow customers to modify the base behavior of the program without directly changing product code. • Led efforts to redesign architectural issues found in a web based claims management system that caused poor performance and stability under load. • Won 3rd place Pinnacle Award (3rd quarter 2011) as a member of the team for the dramatic improvements our work provided. • Guided the testing and bug fixing process while working towards release of the Web UI. • Implemented integrated performance metrics (function timing) into the legacy product in order to diagnose and resolve poorly performing operations discovered while leading the product through performance testing. • Designed and implemented several customizability options into the Web UI. • Implemented aspects of ISO reporting. • Refactored out several points of common code in the legacy VB6 layers to help with code maintenance. • Large contributor to the design (contributor) and implementation (lead) of the architecture for a web based front end (ASP.NET 2.0) to reside on top of a legacy VB6 Business and Data Layer.
