Senior Software Engineer
Alexander Georgiev has over ten years of commercial programming experience working at several large companies (most notably Facebook and Google), as well as few small startups (like Everbread and Hyperscience). He currently is a Senior Software Engineer at Skyscanner, where he works on ranking the results shown to the users (an algorithm which runs hundreds of millions of times each month). He is mostly passionate about effective large-scale products processing huge amounts of data.
Having graduated from Sofia University with a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and started a Master's degree in Artificial Intelligence, his interest in algorithms and data structures was born much before that - he's been a programming competitor for over fifteen years! His passion about programming competitions extends beyond just participating - he is also preparing problems and helping organise contests for high-school and university students. He's the owner and creator of informatika.bg.
His competition experience has helped him be a vital part of the interviewer pool in both Google and Skyscanner. He has done close to 200 interviews and can share interesting advices and hints for those.
