Data Analysis Developer in Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Member since June 18, 2016
With a strong scientific background, Vladimir knows how to operate around tricky problems and chases quick and elegant solutions for them. He's a generalist, always striving to use the best-suited technology for each project instead of always gravitating to the most well-known one. He is also dedicated to pixel-perfect solutions and integrates well with either a front-end or back-end team.
Vladimir is now available for hire

  • Urban Search (Development)

    An Australian data-driven real estate search engine. I've been working in a team of three on both back-end and front-end development.

    Every building was rated and scored depending on various data sources like geolocation data, historical significance, etc. NLP also works on the front-end part of the project, making free text search possible (e.g., You can simply type: "I want a two-bedder with high ceilings and water views in Bondi" and the results will appear).

  • Fcuking Easy CRM (Development)

    A featherlight weight CRM system concentrated on sales productivity and built with 4 core principles in mind:

    - Touch-move rule (like in Chess but for communications)
    - You need to write down everything (memory is the key)
    - Woodpecker sales (write-call-meet till you make it)
    - Time only priority

    Based on those principles, a salesperson can proceed with several hundred deals simultaneously.

    From the technical side:

    - AngularJS front-end
    - Ruby EventMachine REST API back-end
    - PostgreSQL as a database
    - Redis for background tasks
