About Eugene

I’m a big fan of intelligence. I started my career with marketing as a key intelligence activity to business success. Market research, inner data analytics, advanced statistics - I like all the stuff leads to clear and obvious decisions.

Business Intelligence itself was the next stage. I was lucky to work in a wonderful company providing our customers with a really great BI tool. I watched how single analytic can bring a ton of money to his employer just by finding some great idea hidden in its data forest. This way data science popularity has grown along with a terrific amount of data became available even to smaller companies.

And that's the point where I'm now. As many others, I believe artificial intelligence will completely change the game in the nearest decade. I'm deeply interested in machine learning applications, especially in Enterprise world. I do hard work to build my own startup but also open to co-operate with other deep learning enthusiasts, seeking for ideas, investments, and co-founders.

If we share the same addiction I'll be glad to hear from you :)

Work Experience

Founder

A home decorating retailer

November 2011 - March 2016

Founded a company from scratch without any expertise in the domain. It has been going well and had a potential to grow to nationwide scale under franchise licensing but due to some market- as well as personal reasons I decided to close it. As it was my first-time own business I had to learn some tough lessons but I also got a great experience :)

Marketing Manager

RBC Group

September 2009 - November 2011

I spent a great piece of time in the company working in marketing. RBC Group was a local representative for QlikView BI product and for a very short period with a small team and limited resources we managed to completely change Ukrainian BI market surpassing much more powerful competitors.
