Aleksei Volkov



    Introduce yourself in 2 sentences

 I am a software architect and software development consultant from Russia.

    What do you currently do and what does your position include?

Currently, my main client is a company called Maxoptra, which provides an end-to-end solution for B2C delivery management.
      I also consult for small and medium startups. This includes analyzing development processes, current architecture, infrastructure, and costs, as well as creating PoCs for new architectures.
      My secondary field is education. I taught programming and software development methodology at Samara State University. Now, I work as an educational instruction designer for a small online university.

    What motivates you in the work you do?

I've always enjoyed solving complex tasks, even in school. This passion has become a core part of my job, where I solve architectural problems for clients. The best part of my work is seeing processes improve and provide better results for customers and businesses. It's like detangling a complex knot; satisfaction comes when it's finally untangled and the rope isn't broken.

   What do you do in your free time?

I enjoy walking, swimming, playing with my cat, and taking small and big trips around Serbia and the Balkans.  I also dabble in trying to teach my cat to code—she's not very good at debugging but excels at purring.

   Do you want to share anything about yourself or your work?

I think my field is too specific for a broader audience, so probably not.
