Hi, I'm Andrey!

Senior Software Engineer at Anonos • Python • Spark • JVM

I'm a software engineer focused on shipping products and delivering value to customers. In a team, I'm an advocate of trust, asynchronous communication, solid documentation, and pragmatism. I have experience working in distributed teams and remotely. My main areas of interest lie in collaborative software, computing, data processing, and low-latency systems.

I'm a Software Engineer at Anonos working on privacy and data protection solutions. We research and develop the Python SDK and the cloud platform for data anonymization.

Currently based in Berlin, Germany, I am open to exploring opportunities in the UK.

Past work

I have been working in the technology industry for over a decade now. The first significant commercial project I developed was a desktop application for a network of pharmacies in Ireland. It was written in C#, WPF, and the .NET Framework. I was in my third year at university at the time.

Since graduating, I have worked for a few small companies in my hometown, international startups both locally and abroad, and one of the largest retail companies in the EMEA region, using various technologies from Objective-C to Python and often managing projects and people.

I have a degree in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science from Bryansk State University. I have been fascinated by computers since I saw one in 2000. That's why my programming skills are better than my understanding and knowledge of mathematics – such a pity.

This site

This website is online since July 2023. It is another attempt to write about things related to my career and topics that interest me in English (to get a glimpse of my writings in Russian, go to akrisanov.ru). The content varies from short essays to technical articles with lots of code snippets. I only post when I want to express myself, reflect on an experience, or document useful aspects of my work. So please don't expect regular posts here.
