I work as a consultant in addition to my main job. I do it in the fields I believe I can be helpful the most.

Please, note that I can’t consult you if your company has any connection to an automotive business.

As a consultant I can:

  1. Organise and lead processes of team formation and development. Recruiting / assessing / restructuring. 
  2. Create company strategy and a transparent roadmap. Decompose it into goals and identify ways of achieving them. Define areas of responsibility and approach for result measurement.
  3. Organise experiments. Oh, I ❤️ them. I’ll be happy to help you with experiment design. I also can test your product / market fit and evaluate growth potential.
  4. Bring an experimental approach and a culture of continuous learning to your team. Be aware that it might require some actions from the first point.

Eran Birger

Head of Product

Although I had high expectations, Nick absolutely rose above them, becoming a leader in the Gett Delivery organization almost immediately. Nick has a talent of structuring complicated processes (both technological and operational) and identifying opportunities for improvement and growth. His strategic thinking and initiatives allowed him to quickly connect with senior management, and his great interpersonal skills made him loved by his peers. I hope I’ll get to work with Nick again in the future.

Slava Malyshev

Lead Data Engineer

I worked with Nick for two years in Sber. I was a Lead Data Engineer and Nick was a Product Owner in our team.
I like his style of managing a product and people. He organised processes in our team very well. Nick is always full of ideas. He cares not only for his team, but for the whole company. For example, he found a problem with employee churn in whole department(1k employees) and initiated a redesigning of HR process. Nick never stops learning and every time surprises me how much he knows in different areas. Besides being a good manager, he is also a good team player and T-shaped person.
