Hi, I'm Pavel. My passion lies in crafting digital products and fostering happy engineering teams. Struggling to choose one I love more!

I live in Oslo, but I'm originally from Belarus. My family and I moved to Norway in early 2021. While I hope returning to my homeland someday, I'm enjoying life in Norway's picturesque surroundings for now.


You can read about my professional career on Linkedin. I'm a software engineer who moved into engineering management. I see it as a flexible path rather than a one-way door, as in, I'm equally comfortable leading teams or doing hands-on engineering work, depending on where I can add the most value. As an engineer, I grew to the senior engineering positions (lead / architect), working across the stack - frontend, mobile, backend, devops/cloud. As a manager, I coached and mentored engineers with different experience levels and backgrounds, helping them to grow further.

Currently I'm working as Engineering Manager at Tribia, helping technical and business ideas gain traction. Here I'm doing a technical leadership of key product initiatives (SaaS, IAM/SSO, notification engine, etc) and taking care of several engineering teams. I focus on fostering a healthy engineering culture, where people can grow, craft high-quality solutions, innovate and have fun. My aim is to bridge the gap between tech and product/business to maximize the value we deliver to our customers.

On top of that, I've spent the last few years diving deep into DevOps. I've worked on streamlining and automating our development and deployment, building robust CI/CD pipelines used across the organization, setting up IaaC (f.e. Auth0 and Keycloak), implementing monitoring using NewRelic, introducing feature toggling and many more.

Before joining Tribia, I spent a decade working in consultancy at Coherent Solutions and Tieto. I've worked with various clients, from banks to startups, building products ranging from pretty basic web portals to high-load SaaS and high-sec on-premise solutions. I've had the chance to work with a wide range of technologies, but my career began with the Java stack, quickly mixed with frontend development (mostly React), extended with DevOps and Cloud later on. Now, I find the specific technologies matter less to me and I can quickly adapt to any stack - it's all about finding right tools to create good products.

I am driven by constant learning and greatly appreciate those who share the same drive. I value commitment and responsibility. I enjoy working in people-first organizations where there's a shared enthusiasm for crafting beautiful engineering solutions.


In my educational background, I hold a Bachelor's degree in "Artificial Intelligence" (spec: Cybersecurity) from BSUIR and a Master's degree in "Theoretical foundations of computer science". They provided me a solid foundation in computer science and software engineering.

I also pursued a Ph.D. program at BSUIR doing the research in Semantic AI and Knowledge Graphs, however, I found it increasingly difficult to balance between study and my full-time job. I completed the academic years, got a Researcher degree (don't think there is a suitable equivalent of it in EU/US), but dropped out of the Ph.D. work defense in order to focus on my software engineering career. Although I left the Ph.D. program, it was a nice experience, which helped me to become more data-driven and experiment-driven in the everyday work.
