Stories of our Employees

Dzmitry Buriak

Lead Software Engineer / Team Lead

I was a musician before I entered IT. Despite studying at the Physics and Mathematics Lyceum, I entered the music school and then, the Belarusian State Academy of Music.

I have always loved music, but in the last years of my studying I realized that I did not want to devote my life to it. In 2010, I became interested in IT. There was not such a variety of courses as now, but one friend advised me to retrain at the Institute of Information Technologies under BSUIR. At that time, I did not even dream of employment, which many courses now offer. However, two years of study gave me enough knowledge and after completing my studies, I got a job at LeverX Group.

Before joining the company, it seemed to me that IT specialists were people who communicate using complex algorithms and can multiply five-digit numbers in their heads. To not feel insecure and make everybody understand I work at the same pace, I constantly studied and worked even on weekends. This helped me quickly grow as a specialist. Now I can say that my initial idea was wrong, but thanks to my doubts, I promptly raised my technical level.

Today, IT companies are much more loyal to beginners, and there are many more opportunities to enter this field. The world is our ouster: IT companies always welcome motivated, hard-working people ready for new knowledge!

Vadim Usov

Web Developer

In 1999, I graduated from BSUIR, but my specialty was not related to IT, although programming was part of the curriculum. According to the diploma, I am an engineer in automatic control in technical systems. My specialty implies working with electronics, which was my occupation for a long period of my life.

I got interested in IT in 2000 when I had my first computer. Then I created my first website. If, at that time, I had a friend in this field who told me where to start and in what direction to move, I would have already started developing.

However, I continued to work as an engineer. The peculiarity of this area is that professional development ends when the systems for learning end. But I wanted to grow constantly. So I got to the BSUIR web development courses. I remember that only 12 students out of 35 completed the course, and I was not among them. By then, I had already been working at LeverX Group, and I couldn’t combine work and study. The choice was clear.

I entered IT when I was 40 years old. I had many doubts and fears about whether it was possible to radically change my life. I can say for sure that this is possible! And this is worth the time and effort spent.

Anton Sviarzhynski

Middle Front-End Developer

I got interested in IT over three years ago. I am an engineer and have previously worked in the field of building design. I worked there for a long time, and one day, I realized that I had no paths for further development, neither professionally nor financially. I decided it was time to change something.

In the beginning, I tried to learn Frontend development on my own, but, to be honest, I failed in it. Then I signed up for an evening course, which I attended for several months. I continued self-study, got involved in various projects to get some practice, and improved my level of English.

To feel more confident in interviews, I completed another course. After that course, I began to send out my resume to IT companies. I failed the first two interviews, however, I began to feel even more confident and understood what I needed to strengthen. This helped me pass the third interview successfully and get a job at LeverX Group.

Maksim Rudakouski

Lead UX/UI Designer

My IT journey started 12 years ago. At the time, I was a law student and studied international Law and Legal Psychology. In my first year, I realized that I had made a mistake by choosing this profession. The reason is simple: law turned out to be boring, but I wanted to be engaged in creative activities.

I didn’t leave university because IT was not so popular at that time, and I didn’t believe that I could somehow connect my life with design. However, I turned my hobby (passion for Photoshop) into a part-time job: I developed the design of business cards.

Previously, there were no specialized design courses, and it was almost impossible to find competent articles on design. Therefore, I learned everything by trial and error.

Business cards, flash banners, website, and social network development 一 I started all projects with a minimum set of knowledge (sometimes without it) and developed my skills in the process. Honestly speaking, I often had to work without sleep and rest, especially during my work in the Ministry of Emergency Situations, but I’ve never quit what I started.

Now, I am Design Manager - UX/UI Team Lead at LeverX Group, and I can confidently say the following:
a) If I had the opportunities that the IT beginners have, my path would be two times shorter.
b) Whether you are a manager, an accountant, a teacher, or a nuclear physicist, there is a place for everyone in this field.
c) If you are open to new knowledge and ready to work and constantly develop professionally, you will succeed.
