Vouch for them.

Francisco Meza
We worked together  •  Engineering Manager, LinkedIn. Previously Senior Manager - Engineering, OPENLANE.
Hovhannes was the CTO of CarsArrive, a company I worked for. During the time I had him as a CTO I received very valuable advise from him not ... only on technical topics (on which he is definitely an expert) but also on things as varied as intra-organization politics, management, efficient and effective ways to work with (and for) company executives, and many more. I believe the advise he has to offer will be valuable for members of your community and that is why I am vouching for him
Svetlana Simakova
We worked together at CarsArrive Network  •  Engineering Director, Merchant E-Solutions. Previously Sr. Manager Engineering, CarsArrive Network. University of California, Berkeley grad.
Hovhannes just gets things done! He will find a problem, think of a solution and deploy, which will be robust, scalable and lean. His knowle ... dge and experience are extensive, better yet - he uses both daily. Hovhanness is very hands on - all projects he worked on have his direct input. I believe that any project he puts his head to will be a success!
