Alex Maslakov

All-around Programmer (Ruby, Python / Java, Clojure / C, C++ / Haskell / C#)


  • I'm an all-around programmer. I've tried breaking my passion off several times over the years, but a force bigger than I keeps bringing me back to programming. And it's been happening for 6 years. As a full-time freelancer I've been earning a living since 2012 living and travelling in other countries.
  • I'm also stoked about functional programming, finance (including crypto-currencies), data analysis, machine learning and cyber security.
  • I am available for hire: paid support, consulting and development work. I don't just do programming. Rather I solve your problem choosing the most appropriate tool and technology. When contacting me, please provide the details of what you need, your approximate budget and time estimate.
  • I'm willing to relocate to Japan, USA, Hong Kong or Singapore if there's a legitimate job for me in those countries.
  • Where I am: at the moment I'm in Southeast Asia, GMT +7 (last updated: Oct 2015).
