Challenges:

Nov 2014 - Sep 2016

CTO of tech support department - “YourServerAdmin”

My position called CTO but in fact, that was a mix of:

As a chief technologist, I was responsible for the main technical processes inside my team and research of the new technologies we could implement for clients. Also, I implemented ITIL practices together with our COO. But what I like the most is that I could change the way of how our department worked with the development department. The work became more united, more interactive, which turned into interesting and successful projects for both departments.

Project Manager. Managed the projects using practices from PRINCE2 methodology and Theory of Constraints.
