Hey, there! 👋 I am Katerina, Software Engineer and CEO at Adeva.

In 2014, I co-founded Adeva, a talent marketplace for remote developers with the goal to bringing equal opportunities to developers everywhere. Today, our network has over 300 developers from over 20 countries, working with exciting startups and Fortune 500 companies.

My personal mission is to inspire people to make a difference, no matter where they come from. To achieve that, I initiate various projects and initiatives, mentor, speek at conferences and take part of many volunteering activities.

I stand for equality, inclusion, and giving back to the community, both personally and professionally. In my free time, I like to take part of women in tech movements, contribute to the local tech community, and volunteer as a mentor in different programs.
