Graphics Software Engineer,
Software and Services Group
Nizhny Novgorod, Russia
"My career at Intel started when I was offered an engineering internship. I came back to Intel as a Software Engineer and now I work as a Graphics Software Engineer."
What's a cool opportunity or project I've had while working at Intel?
I've been working on Intel® Graphics Performance Analyzers (Intel® GPA) 2.0 Gold release. I participated at the Russian Game Developer's Conference (KRI conference) in Moscow and presented our product to Russian game developers.
What makes this project cool to me?
It's really cool because it is the first public release of the AVC (Advanced Video Coding) team and I've been working on the project almost since the moment of it's inception.
Why do I think Intel is a great place to work?
First of all it is a challenging job, and I get the chance to become recognized in the field of computer graphics. I have the opportunity to attend various conferences, and work with interesting and friendly people.
What do I do when I'm NOT at work?
I like shooting, hunting, ice hockey, carting, bicycle, playing my guitar, traveling, art cinema, reading books and much, much more!
If I could live and work abroad for a year, where would I go?
To the U.S., because the leaders of IT industry are located there, plus there is amazing natural diversity. I'd like to visit the Grand Canyon and the lakes of Utah.
What's my favorite holiday destination?
That's Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic. It's a bewitching place with narrow streets, fine architecture, large gardens, and an extensive bridge over a deep gap in the rock upon which the castle is built.
