CV - Kirill Taran

You need an account to view this information.

In the industry since 2011: internships at Yandex and Intel, software verification research at JetBrains, software development and technical leadership at EPAM, some experience with cheminformatics. In 2019, I relocated to Germany to work on a patents-search system in one of München’s drug-discovery companies. After, I moved to Berlin to explore Blockchain space with Parity Technologies.

Strong backend and functional programming skills. My key technologies are Rust and Scala. Distributed systems is my passion.
I can also implement a frontend on proof-of-concept level and MVP of entire system from scratch.
For early-stage projects, I can set up all infrastructure (CI/CD, AWS, etc.)
