Cover letter

My name is Alexander Cherushnikov. I have been working as an iOS developer for 5 years now. Among the companies I worked for were Handsome, LLC (American division in Russia) and one of the biggest e-commerce businesses in Russia -

Besides that I have 2 year experience of front-end development.

Now I am a lead mobile software engineer at We develop the main IOS application of the bank - “Sberbank Online”. Our development team consists of around 100 engineers working on one mobile application. I am a product owner at iOS Platform engineering team. We build module architecture for independent development and deploy (module architecture, migration from mono-repository to multi-repository), make tools for our feature teams so they can provide a high quality and a great level of permanence of application release. We have created the most of the development process, the base of it such as Code Review, DevOps, Guides, Testing (unit and ui), and HR process (hiring of engineers, performance review). 

Besides I teach students in our corporate developers school. This year we had 2 groups of students, 20 people in each of them. In my spare time I like taking part in mobile developers conferences, for the past year I participated as a speaker twice (one my speech was about our module architecture, another one was about ui testing). Here is a link to the video with my speech -

I am also planning on taking part in the local Team Leads conference this month with a speech about performance review.
