I am in charge of the common components service at Yandex.

At the moment it's more than 45 developers in 7 groups and 4 cities: Moscow, Saint-Petersburg, Innopolis and Simferopol. Plus Bootcamp.

I'm responsible for the common components and BEM. Besides that we build Directory and a lot of internal services, part of which are available as Yandex Connect.

I work at Yandex for more than 9 years and during this time I managed to participate at the most different projects. Started with Main page of the portal.

Before Yandex I led my own design studio having two offices.

I'm active open source contributor: a member of 20 organizations on github, have more than 200 repos at my own account and maintain more that 100 packages at npm.

I speak at conferences a lot. I stopped counting when the number of talks exceeded 50. Most of the talks are in Russian but there are some in English as well. For example in Australia, Holland, Israel, India, Belgium, Romania and China. I'm an organizer of BEMups — meetups about BEM and a teacher at Yandex Interface school. Conducted more than 100 job interviews.

Visited 25 countries.
