Alan Louie
We worked together  •  Strategic Partnerships & Special Projects, Google.
He *is already* a great entrepreneur by having started InstaGrok and TextGenome (the latter with me) in a market, K-12 education, that is to ... ugher than consumer web or enterprise. He's creative, super sharp, figures out solutions and can implement them in a flash. Plus he's fun to work with 1:1 and in a team setting since he's so gracious and kind. We're friends as well as colleagues, the best combination.
Cameron Levy
We worked together  •  Managing Partner, Goldsprocket. Duke grad.
I worked side-by-side with Kirill for almost 6 months. First, he is extremely productive. What takes other developers weeks Kirill can do in ... literally one day. The code is clean and easy to understand. Second, Kirill has an uncanny ability to understand the big picture. Brainstorming with him is just flat out fun, and you'll often be left with a completely different way of thinking than you had going in. He's the rare bird with software skills, product skills, and business skills. Third, and just as valuable, Kirill's simply a pleasure to work with. He's nice, honest and open, and he has a great sense of humor.
Peter Green
We worked together  •  Founder, Mine.
He's a doer. Gets shit done and very smart.
Aaron Lifshin
We worked together  •  COO, Dartmouth College grad.
Kirill is thoughtful, compassionate and intelligent. He has a broad background in both science and programming and a good sense of business ... opportunity.
Andrew Bender
We worked together  •  Director of Product, Sourcebits. Kellogg grad. Dartmouth College grad.
Kirill wouldn't make a great entrepreneur; he already is one. He spots an opportunity and moves extremely quickly. One thing that struck me ... about our time working together was how clear his vision for the future was. I'd love to work with him again someday. Bonus points for being a true gentleman.
