From childhood Nikolay demonstrated a keen interest in radio electronics and was regularly found converting acoustic guitars into electric ones as well as making amplifiers from scratch. Later as Windows 95 was released, he became interested in computer architecture and MS-DOS as an operation system. This led to Nicolay enrolling in programming courses on BASIC and Pascal, where he also participated in several school programming competitions and Olympiads.
In 2010 he joined the R&R Music team as Senior PHP Developer and subsequently received an offer from the online service Hotline.ua which is the Ukrainian online service for selection of goods and prices to join as a Senior PHP Developer.
Later Nikolay returned to R&R Innovation as a Senior Software Engineer and was involved in application development using a wide range of languages and technologies, infrastructure management and monitoring. During this period, he was responsible for the stability of the organisation’s services.
Nicolay uses his 16 years of IT experience to assist the backend functionality of Safe As Houses' programme and software development systems.
Outside of work, he is an active member of the OpenSource community and is fond of radio electronics, the development of devices, and home automation based on Arduino and esp32 microcontrollers.
