Privet! My name is Kirill, and I am a passionate software developer living in a beautiful city of Berlin. I lived in Moscow, Russia until 24 of June 2022 year, when because of a war in Ukraine I had to relocate to Europe.
Having 11 years of software engineering experience I am proficient in handling complex tasks across tech stacks and/or functional domains. Driven by agile principles (especially passionate about lean and kanban) I am fond of CI/CD pipelines and continuous improvement process. Working in enterprise I drive innovation spirit and always do a little more to improve all kind of things around me and to enable everyone to deliver better things in more fast, predictable and secure way.
