Vardges Avetisyan
We worked together  •  Engineering, Twitter. Previously Co-Founder, TweetHood.
Simone Sarmet
They're my current cofounder  •  Co-Founder, Brasileiras do Vale and Visual / Graphic Designer and Marketing Consultant, DataSelf Corp. Stanford grad.
Burag has a strong passion for solving problems and vision for solutions and how to implement them. He is organized, has excellent project m ... anager skills, knows how to build a team and how to help the team members to maximize their knowledge and skills.
Andrew Evangelidis
They're my school  •  CTO, Highline Capital. Previously IT, Eze Castle Integration.
What differentiates Burag is his ability to break down and execute complex ideas. He has an outstanding technical vision. At times, it feel ... s as if he can time-travel in his head and see the steps that will be required in a very detailed manner Burag is also an exceptional programmer. He is easily in the top two programmers that I've met in my life - and I've met a quite a few. Burag is also open minded and willing to listen and make himself a better person and a better professional. To conclude, I'd like to emphasize how amazing of an executioner Burag is. With his skillset and determination, it won't surprise me to see Burag on the cover of a major publication in a few years. He is that good.
Natasha Awasthi
We worked together  •  Sr. Product Manager, Collective Health and Product Management Instructor, General Assembly. Wharton grad.
There is nothing more liberating and rare than cranking on tough problems with people - like Burag - who you trust and admire. For the 9 yea ... rs that we worked together, mostly under time and resource crunches, Burag was a consistent source of creative but feasible ideas. Beyond leading the engineers on the technical aspects of complex products and services in health care, he persuaded us to make some incredibly smart business decisions. He is brilliant and driven, and his glittering track record is proof. It is mindboggling that he can make the time to tinker with all the latest technologies, and to mentors others, and to meet and introduce us to new ideas and people, and to excel at his "day job."
Harry Collins
We worked together  •  Previously Director, Healthcare Solutions, EPAM Systems.
Burag is a very skilled engineer but has a great ability to communicate his ideas to people outside of the technology industry. He has alwa ... ys been one to "over deliver@ and look for ways to make the company's services better. He gets along well with his colleagues and has held team leadership positions and executed them well.
