To Whom It May Concern,
I have had the pleasure of working with Artem Scherbachuk since January 2016. StarMaker Interactive
contracted with Artem to maintain and grow our iOS karaoke app. As V.P. of Engineering I directly oversaw
all of Artem’s work.
Artem joined our team at a time where we needed a seniorlevel iOS engineer to be our iOS project lead
developer. He brought great experience and knowledge of the iOS platform and outstanding
professionalism to our team. Artem quickly learned our product and our code base. He was making active
contributions to our app in the first few days on the job. Throughout our time working together Artem always
went beyond the specifications and learned about the business, and what our goals were for any feature.
He then used his knowledge of our existing system, of the iOS platform, and of user behaviour to make
recommendations for improvement. Many of Artem’s suggestions are present in our live app today!
Artem does a great job integrating with the team, even as a remote team member. He is punctual for
meetings, and quickly responds to all email and other communication. Artem goes above and beyond
expectations to be reachable at times convenient for the rest of the team, even when it might be
inconvenient for him. Aterm works well with all team members, participating in code reviews, offering
suggestions, and generally helping us do whatever it takes to get things done. He is always reachable when
Artem is a toptier iOS developer. He is a mature and knowledgeable engineer and is better than most
engineers at communication and working with the product and business parts of the organization to get
things just right. Artem can see the bigger picture, and help you to realize your vision!
I hope to work with Artem again in the near future!
