Career Profile

Hi! My name is Max Leonov and I am a software developer. I was born in Kryvyi Rih city, Ukraine in 1988.

I enjoy parallel computing, web programming and travels. Cooking is my hobby.

As a professional, I have more than 5 years of successful experience in commercial software development. I have experience in designing and developing high-loaded well-scalable systems and services. I also designed and developed the asynchronous distributed computing systems. Using cloud solutions and technologies like Amazon AWS is an important part of my professional experience. My experience also includes working in a distributed team using agile development methodologies.

PHP is main technology that I use in the development. I have experience working with a variety of frameworks such as Zend, Laravel, Symphony, Phalcon, Silex, Slim. I also have experience in development without any frameworks, in pure PHP.
