Hey, I'm Yuri.

I'm a software engineer from Ukraine. I was raised in Tokyo, graduated from a university in New York, and currently reside in Singapore.

I specialize in full-stack, API, and test-driven development of Ruby on Rails and Javascript applications. Currently, I am focusing on cryptocurrency trading with Elixir.

I am a regular contributor to open source. You can find my work on Github under yurikoval.
