I worked with Irina on a website project for Euroflag company in 2004. The deadlines were very short, design requirements have been changed several times over the term of the project. In her approach to resolving of the multiple issues, Irina has proven to be a flexible understanding and knowledgeable expert who was able to meet all requirements of the customer and meet the deadlines, providing for additional savings of the project costs of 18%. I will be happy to work with Irina again and she will be a great addition to any team!
