Work Experience

C# (.NET) Software Architect

2017 - PRESENT
Lykke Inc
  • Contributed to margin trading services architecture design and development of essential parts.
  • Orchestrated team member work for 2-6 developers.
  • Took part in company software infrastructure gardening: created BrokerBase library to simplify and standardise brokers creation (works with RabbitMQ + Azure Tables or MSSQL, used in >20 services), optimized CI flow to automate preparation of service releases, empowered the service health control with a custom metrics feature to gather additional data at runtime.
  • Designed and implemented margin trading risk control from a prototype to a fully-functional solution: analyzing trading platform's accounts/positions/orders/quotes state (>1,000/sec), making real-time decisions and performing automated actions.
  • Designed and implemented aggregated hedging to increase/reduce hedging positions on partner crypto exchanges automatically. It was really inspiring to make the design of such a big integration project from scratch.
  • Forked and customized a well-proven margin trading core for a large bank conglomerate: created integration layer to the bank's infrastructure (accounting, reporting, settings services, etc) and newly created mobile and web apps. It took quite a time to make performance optimizations for bank's tight requirements: 10k orders open with 15,000/sec incoming quotes. The hard thing was to rebuild from scratch obsolete services without any documentation. At the same time, it was an interesting experience to work with a big distributed team of >40 members.

GitHub Profile
My GitHub profile has a number of open-source projects.

Margin Trading Core
Margin trading platform core service is responsible for trading operations: handling trading state, orders, positions, accounts, and so on.

It is designed to work under a load of 10,000 orders open with 15,000/sec incoming quotes.

Broker Base
Lykke.MarginTrading.BrokerBase NuGet package can be used for easy broker generation. Such a broker is using RabbitMQ as a transport layer. It implements logging (to FS, MSSQL or Azure tables), and Slack notifications out of the box. Also, it supports message throttling.

Margin Trading Settings Service
Settings microservice is responsible for the management of markets, assets, asset pairs, trading schedules, trading conditions, trading instruments, and trading routes.
