After university Leonid and two friends founded their own consultancy. They started with small projects and within two years they moved on to bigger jobs. Once doing this for a while Leonid decided to join another small startup-style company. Leonid helped this company to grow until he was managing 5 engineers.
After a while, Leonid decided to have a change and moved to another town and started to work remotely. He wanted to work remotely so he could spend time with his family and loved ones. He now manages a team of engineers at Tyk remotely.
