IntroducingHello dear stranger!

Probably you were trying to offer me an interesting job opportunity and most likely I redirected you to this page. It's a lucky day for both of us because currently, I'm looking for new challenges!

First of all, I would like to thank you for your interest in me as a candidate, I appreciate that. I do. Secondly, I respect your time as much as I respect mine so please let’s spend it as productive as possible.

I get literally tons of HR messages on LinkedIn and 99% of them are irrelevant. So I came up with the idea of how to avoid that. But let me introduce myself first.

My name is Yuri and I’m a JavaScript/TypeScript Engineer with more than 8 years of experience in the field.

Previously I worked as a

  • Developer at LiveScore.com where I and my team were building a better version of the web using top-notch frontend technologies and tools.

  • Lead Software Engineer at Oak's Lab (I led teams of Software Engineers both in the Web and Mobile fields)

  • Kiwi.com — a place where I had a chance to work on the best aggregator and booking service for airline tickets.

All I expect you to do is to meet only a few criteria before you’re going to contact me and offer a new role:

  • Currently, I'm transitioning from developer to Engineer Manager/Tech Lead. I know how to lead projects, communicate with people, mentor juniors and not get crazy. Development as a leader is my primary goal for the next few years. My 2021-2023 motto: Soft skills > hard skills.

  • I really like JavaScript and everything about it. I don't have any plans to be a Java/C#/Python/{anyOtherLanguage} hero for you or someone else anytime soon.

  • What about the client-side frameworks? I like React.js, it covers all my work needs.

  • Are you still making RESTful APIs? Oh my Goddess, no, please no. I prefer the GraphQL+ Node.js combo. If you still use REST and looking forward to modernizing your architecture and technology stack — no worries, I can help you with that as well!

  • I am a huge fan of Open Source ideology, and I expect my future employer and colleagues to share the same views. Let's build some Open Source together!

  • My usual Man-day rates are starting from 450 EUR (11.5k CZK).

  • optional but preferable The company can do 100% remote. It’s becoming natural to work from different countries and time zones nowadays.

Checked every point above carefully and you are pretty sure that I’m the guy and you are that 1%? Please drop me an email at hi@mynameisyuri.com or book a quick call in my Calendar.

P.S. These are the technologies I use on a daily basis (mmm, buzzwords): JavaScript, TypeScript, React.js, Node.js, Next.js, Styled-components, Tailwind, Apollo Client/Urql, GraphQL, GraphQL Code Generator, SQL/NoSQL databases, Prisma v2, AWS, Google Cloud.

Cheers,

Yuri Yakovlev
