Lead IT recruiter, sourcer and relocation expert
I am a Lead IT recruiter with 5+ years experience. I joined IT Talent in January 2021 and moved to Tallinn from St Petersburg.
I took a long path to discover recruitment and IT. However, starting from the moment I joined, I never looked back and loved my profession.
The recent 5 years of my career have been dynamic, full of learning by doing. Today I am happy to share my knowledge with you. I will train your brain, pump up your skills and share my love for IT.
I started my recruitment career as a sourcer with the global US company EPAM, then continued with an IT life science company, joined it as an IT recruiter and a little later I was promoted to Talent Acquisition partner. Being adept at constant learning I took part in one of the biggest IT recruiting conferences in Saint Petersburg, called HRAPI, and got acquainted with Julia. A year later I was excited to accept IT Talent's offer and move to Estonia. I have experienced the journey from offer to relocation and adaptation myself. I love living in Estonia! I will be glad to share my expertise on the following topics:
Lead Software Engineer
I am an experienced software engineer with 15 years of hands-on coding experience in a variety of languages. I am a lifelong learner and very excited to share my knowledge about nerdy things.
Masters degree in Human Computer Interaction (Tallinn University 2020).
Masters degree in Applied Math (Kuban state university, Russia 2006).
I usually meet HRs when looking for a new job. The impression I was sharing with my colleagues, before I found IT Talent, was: HRs know nothing about IT, and they don’t want to. Julia and her team re-assured me. And now I want to help other HRs to be better in what they do.
I started as a developer and throughout my career I was a lead developer and Engineering Manager. I had the pleasure of organizing several internal trainings for non-developers, and workshops for dev-juniors aka Django Girls Tallinn.
