In this role, I'm helping accelerating Scotiabank's transformation into a true technology company.

As a consultant / team lead, I work on various projects for different clients. Each and every project is unique in terms of architectural design, technologies and tools involved as well as the development workflow. It's also a great opportunity to learn new tools and practices and master existing skills. Not to mention that I'm constantly surrounded by exceptionally smart people - my colleagues.

Kristian Knudsen, development team manager:
"Pavel and I have over the years been working together on numerous software projects being on the same development team where I've had the position both as Pavel's co-worker but also as his manager. Pavel is an outstanding software developer and always creates new functionality of the highest quality. He also has a very rare ability to crunch even the most troublesome bugs and problems. You can always rely on Pavel and you are always certain that he'll do his best to achieve the goals that have been set. When approaching Pavel with a new idea or project you can always be sure that he will provide you with well reasoned arguments and feedback that can open a discussion and eventually take the project in a more prosperous direction. Finally Pavel also has a rare gift of being able to communicate extremely well both to his peers but also to people without the same level of technical insight."

PriceFlurry is a place to share and discover the cost of different goods and services. I was the author of the original idea, I have designed and implemented the entire platform (frontend, backend, public/private APIs, WP7 app). I've also implemented the entire UI. Although, I was very satisfied with the quality of the product and the technology behind it, I had to shut PriceFlurry down for a number of reasons (more details can be found on the blog).
