Living in Moscow, Moscow region
Citizen of Russia
Position: Ruby/Rails Senior
I like to create products and services using information technologies to provide users with some new opportunities, e.g. services for obtaining electronic cheques, hotel reservation or search for deposits.
To do it, I use the following skills:
- writing technical assignment / specification (with focus on question "what and how to do for it");
- using client-server approach and technologies;
- programming the main functionality on the server side and minimally necessary on the client side;
- sometimes — wrting test cases / scenarious;
- sometimes — operational documentation;
- sometimes — schemata and diagrams of business processes, systems interaction etc.;
- sometimes — creating user interface layouts;
- sometimes — collecting data, formulation and testing hypotheses.
Currently, I'm looking for relocation or remote work. Business trips are allowed.
Back-end (server side)
Ruby — 4-5 years of experience (for companies), and also for my own's tasks. I try to write "clean" code, i.e. with understandable abstractions, visual, safe, reliable. An interesting example is a text parser, that transforms serialization of Java objects to JSON format.
Rails — 4 years of experience (for companies), and also for my own's tasks. I pay great attention to the structure of the code, so that the code is more flexible for later modifications. Also, I prefer to write small specailized classes, for example "repository" for obtaining objects collections (instead of typical approach — scope or methods of ActiveRecord::Base subclasses), this method allows me to separate business logic from data storage.
Sinatra (Ruby) — about 1 year of experience, use it in wiki-like site for technical documentation.
php — more than 2 years of experience (for companies), and also for my own's tasks. I use php for small sites and CMS.
Slim framework (php) — about 1 year of experience. Example: web interface for access control (PACS).
SQL — more than 5 years of experience. I can write simple and complex queries, but do it rare, because ORM solves most issues with databases.
MySQL — more than 2 years of experience. I used triggers and views. For example, I migrated data from TecDoc to MySQL (auto models, supplies etc., all kept in little-known DBMS).
PostgreSQL — more than 4 years of experience. Including full-text search and views, hstore.
MongoDB — about 1 year of experience.
Redis — about 1 year of experience. Example: solution for checking site/service operability.
TDD — 1 year of experience. I use RSpec, FactoryGirl, FFaker, and in some solutions — Capybara, Cucumber.
HTML HTML5 Slim templates (Ruby) — I use modern approaches for developing layouts of complex web pages.
CSS CSS3 Sass
Redmine — 1-2 years of experience in developing Redmine-based solutions. These solutions are internal corporate systems for management of projects, issues, business processes and specific object types. Example plugins: announcements (notifications) on-site, logging queries to the site.
UML User Story ER-diagrams — 1-2 years of experience in System Analyst role in large corporate projects.
XML SOAP — developed integration between several systems.
UX — I made sketches for some web pages using Balsamiq, Visio, Quant UX.
Docker git Linux
Desired work conditions
Prefer to plan the solution of the problem before starting the work and to write clean code. It makes easier to implement new features and changes in code.
I like to determine what and how I should do, and also plan my activities.
I feel comfortable working independently, and if necessary I ask help from the staff.
I love to work in teams where every person has unique role (cross-functional teams), e.g. front-end + back-end + designer + product owner.
A good workplace for me looks like this: light enough, quiet, there is a chair or armchair up to the shoulders or above, not an "open space" for 30 people or more (maybe less) — important that it is quiet.
Important! I don't like overtime work, especially when it is not compensated by money or rest days.
Expectations for corporate culture
I'm interested in a democratic, creative environment, where there is space for the development of work processes and results, as well as experiments (development is always accompanied by experiments!). I welcome the combination of adaptability and organization!
In general, there should be quiet in the office. Discussions and demonstrations of works are appropriate to hold in the meeting room.

- learned new way to re-structure the code in Rails with the separation of data modification operations (gem mutations), validations, generation of data forms — all in classes, instead of typical for Rails Way approach, "fat models".
Interesting in programming languages like Crystal, Rust and Go — for increasing speed of code execution, approaches for increasing the reliability of programs, familiar syntax.

- monitoring_web_service, Rails-based solution for monitoring availability of any site
- Ruby-based & Crystal-based microservices
- Plugin for EasyRedmine that adds site-wide announcements (news, notifications)
