Who we are
Kristina Holysheva I Founder, Lead Recruiter
Being a child my favorite game was “Connect the Dots”. I was fascinated how having a complete freedom but knowing the right way eventually brings you to seeing the whole picture. I grew up and got absorbed by the dynamic of the tech culture. But my passion remains the same. It’s about connecting the dots in a high-tech space, helping companies and candidates connect to build game changing products.
Expert in building & leading design and recruitment teams.
Jane Pogrebnaya I Design Recruiter
For the last 10 years, I've been working in tech. I've spent few years managing mobile banking projects. Then I decided to become a UI/UX designer. As most beginners, I completed few courses, learned design fundamentals, but as it turned out - design didn’t become my true passion. Although, it still keeps me interested in UI/UX.
Finally, my journey brought me to recruitment, that turned my attention to design again. The only difference is that now I'm not creating, but looking for those, who do - for people who bring cool ideas to life and are passioned about that.
Nataliya Yakubova I Design Talent Sourcer
I've been in international sales for 10 years before my recruitment journey started. During that time I was always focused on client's needs, truly caring about how they interact with the product.
These years taught me that people and psychology are my biggest passions, so I decided to pursue a psychology degree.
Recruitment is where psychology and professional knowledge meets with sales skills. Design recruitment is where you get creativity on top, as well as an opportunity to meet with extremely talented and inspiring professionals.
Ross Liutov I Design Talent Sourcer, US
For the past 6 years I've been in various kinds of international and global-wide business. From logistics to sales, from exporting to UI/UX design and tech.
Having obtained profound knowledge as to how business generally operates, I reckon I can confidently acknowledge what's workable and what's not.
My approach is highly pragmatic as much as it is intuitive. I'm pretty convinced that just like a bird flies using two of its wings likewise a human being achieves integrity through combining both of these approaches.
I first learned about UI/UX ten years ago when I mistakenly received an invitation to study at the Institute of Design.
My professional path began with journalism. I worked as an editor on television, radio, and in a magazine. Four years later I took UI/UX Design course and became passionate about how good designs can change our world for better. Still have my personal behance!
I love talking to designers, reviewing their portfolios and learning how they balance between user and business needs.
