In early 2010, Pavel created the idea for Qwintry and, together with with Valeria Dorofeyeva, offered the service out of Anchorage. After two years, he decided to move to Oregon. He loves to invent new projects and interact with people. When he got his degree, he was already used to Qwintry and, seeing as he had nowhere else to go, he decided to stay with the company. Pavel can claim full responsibility for the development of this enterprise; in other words, he meddles with every part of the project that he can get his hands on.
Anton joined Qwintry in 2011 as a lead information systems developer. He was naive. He didn’t know what he was getting himself into, or just how much Pavel and Valeria would take advantage of him. Anton loves cars of all shapes and sizes, and he’s skeptical of people of all shapes and sizes. At Qwintry, he’s responsible for technology, design, and keeping the Samara office supplied with water and tea.
No one quite remembers exactly when Vadim started working at Qwintry. Although he’s a computer programmer, he leads the life of a groundhog and only comes out among other people at night. Despite this, he enjoys soccer and motorcycles. Vadim painstakingly looks after the code on Qwintry’s website because it seems to have a mind of its own, and requires special attention.
Aleksey came to Qwintry late one spring, and with time, his programming skills were replaced by accounting skills. He loves Southeast Asia and logistics, although he concealed this fact for a whole six months. Aleksey oversees operations and manages employees at Qwintry’s Moscow office. In his free time, he’s inclined to play the guitar and ride his bike. But only at night. In secret.
Design and Layout
Oleg found himself at Qwintry by chance, thanks to outstanding genes. He shares a name with some of his coworkers, and he is a friend to many at the company. He loves animals and designing web interfaces. At Qwintry, Oleg is responsible for website design and layout. He’s cunning, but kind - quite like a beaver.
Marina was a client before she decided, almost unnoticed, to start working at Qwintry. She immediately became involved in customer support, both for herself and for others. She loves active volcanoes and stuffed animals - especially mice. Her spare time is dedicated to gymnastics and chess. While Marina continues to work in customer support, she has also taken on responsibility addressing security issues.
Anna was one of the first to recognize Qwintry’s creative potential, so she left her high-paying international job to come work with us. And she tearfully admits that she doesn’t regret it! She loves to help other people. At Qwintry, Anna works in customer support responding to various questions through email and skype, in multiple languages.
Artyom was drafted into Qwintry’s ranks after he wrote us a letter. He loves compound sentences. He’s got an open mind and the privilege of traveling to Europe without a visa. At our organization Artyom is responsible for producing articles published by Qwintry as well as managing a repository of gifts intended for outstanding writers.
Maksim chose a long and complicated path to Qwintry: we eventually discovered him through the interesting custom-designed blog he created. He loves Google and cleanliness. He offers moral support to the customer support staff. At Qwintry, Maksim devotes his time to studying new phones, smartwatches and other gadgets, as well as preparing articles and reviews.
It’s been said that Lena came to Qwintry in the footsteps of her husband like the wife of a Decembrist, although it’s impossible to test the theory. She loves cats and other family values. At Qwintry, Lena is responsible for social networking, sales and discounts.
Lena began working at Qwintry due to family circumstances. Prior to this, she was working in an underground operation trafficking hamsters and other exotic animals. She inadvertently began her career as an artist after her drawing skills revealed themselves. Lena is the humblest member of Qwintry’s team, but she deserves high praise for providing our site with new images on a regular basis!
Lena joined the Qwintry team late one wintry night. From that point on she’s displayed a rare discipline and talent, and she always shows up for first call, day and night. She’s got mixed feelings toward electronic devices, so she’ll gladly cradle some in her hands while planning the annihilation of others. At Qwintry, Lena conducts surveys on the Qwintry channel.
Oksana came to Qwintry practically on foot, all the way from Maryland. She works at Veles, a partner company that helps Qwintry’s clients make purchases in stores that don’t accept international credit cards. Strangers thank her for professionally spending their money. Oksana is an architect at heart (and her education says the same), so in her free time she feels it necessary to buy beautiful homes.
Natasha works at Veles making impossible purchases possible and enjoyable for Qwintry clients. She loves fitness, fashion, photography, and other things that start with an “f” sound. If she wasn’t working at Qwintry, Natasha would probably be training Texas rangers.
