Anatoly Karp
We worked together  •  Software Engineer, Google. Previously Senior Software Engineer, LinkedIn. University of Wisconsin-Madison grad.
I have known Stanislav for more than 20 years. When I first met him, he already was a top-notch programmer, with deep knowledge of technolog ... y and impressive personal projects behind his belt. Over the years that followed, I worked with him on a number of startup ventures. As a startup founder, Stanislav has, over and over again, shown a unique ability to do more with less, deal intelligently with product and engineering trade-offs, and rally the team with him to deliver products and features. As a leader with a strong product sense and deep technical background, Stanislav is an immense asset to any startup he commits to. I recommend him as a great founder, without reservations, and would absolutely welcome the opportunity to work with him again.
