Officially, I work for Yandex.Taxi* where I am a Senior International Launcher. I was part of the team that launched the service in Ghana in June 2019. The exciting thing is you can apply analytical and people skills to most problems regardless of the domain or the country you're working in. This has been a skill I learned at Skoltech and one that's useful for my work at Yandex.
My friend Artem Kozin and I also founded a startup called ProctorEdu
** three years ago. So far we have raised about $ 350 000 USD. The company has been profitable since month 6 of the launch. I am responsible for making sure that our international expansion efforts are well executed. At the moment, we are a team of 7 with sales and operations in India, Canada, Serbia, Russia and Kazakhstan. Over the next few years, we hope to scale the business beyond our traditional education sector. The solution is an algorithm to that will allow test givers to track and monitor for cheating behavior and ID theft.
