HumanScript developer at Hillel IT School; MarfaLab

About me

I'm a soft skills trainer with over 11 years of experience in development. Over this time I've progressed from a trainee C# developer to a frontend team lead. The biggest leaps in my career, I attribute primarily to working on soft skills.

I know what is weak soft skills and how this affects career from my own experience and that of my colleagues and subordinates. So I devoted a lot of time to studying the topic and practicing it.

Also, I'm an introvert and I know how hard communication could be.

Currently I conduct career consultations, mentor frontend beginners, conduct soft skills webinars and trainings. Also, I teach the Frontend Pro course at Hillel IT School and develop and conduct lessons on soft skills in various groups (PM, Marketing, Cybersecurity, Design, Development).

My superpower is a combination of strong analytical skills, the ability to break things down systematically, a drive to get to the rootcause of issues, and a keen observant eye that allows me to see more.
