Yevgeniy Skulditskiy

Engineering Manager at Global Fashion Group

I've had the pleasure of managing Artem for the past 6 months, and I can confidently say he is an exceptional SSE. Artem is very skilled in PHP, but he also worked without any hesitation on projects written in Go and Java.

He has a remarkable talent for solving complex problems. What sets him apart is an ability to simplify these solutions through clear documentation, making it easier for everyone to understand.

Artem doesn't stop at just solving problems, he actively improves our work processes. As example of this he created internal tools which have made debugging of certain type of tasks much easier and saved a lot of time for other developers.

Apart from his technical expertise, Artem is a natural leader. He pays really big attention to details. I highly recommend him for any software engineering role as his skills and proactive attitude make him an asset to any organization.

Paul Roberts

Founder and CEO at Kubient (NASDAQ:KBNT)

Artem is a high-level professional. He accepted old projects for support, launched a large new project and organized the work for all of his team. The project included modern technologies and accounting for the current infrastructure. As the project was launched, presentations were made and answers to all questions were received. Transparent documentation is written for both programmers and users. The new project includes a flexible system for working with different types of clients and users. Data visualization, dashboards and the RTB system management system turned out to be at a high level.

Nina Zarina

Head of Publisher Trading Platform (PTP) at IPONWEB

Artem is a highly professional software engineer and efficient leader who can reliably solve complex, complicated technical tasks. For two years, I've worked as a team manager with Artem on advertising platform solutions for a few international customers (USA, Japan, Netherlands). Our team's development cycle improved a lot under his supervision. He wrote detailed instructions with all possible actions for each task. He worked closely with the developers' team to explain the correct estimation's importance. They even started "planning poker" for each release. All of these led to an impressive result: our releases were delivered on time, which led to an amazing relationship with our customers. Thank you, Artem, for the great job!
