I am a Python Data Engineer from Delft, Netherlands. By having more than 15 years of experience in data engines, tooling, pipeline, data warehousing and the data in general, I help customers get the maximum output from their data assets.
What I Do
Alex is one of the most knowledgeable engineers in any topic, from Python, Pyspark, ADLS, Azure Devops CI/CD pipelines, Data Engineering, Data Warehousing and many more. He always showed a lot of ownership and dedication to make the project a success. Moreover, he had the enthusiasm and patience to explain these complex concepts to the rest of the team and involve us in building the solutions together, bringing the maturity of the team to a higher level. I count myself lucky that I had the opportunity to work with him and learn so many things in such a short time, both on an engineering and personal level.
I have had the pleasure of working with Alex for a while, and I have to say it was an amazing experience. Alex has truly very deep and expansive knowledge and experience on data-related topics and cloud infrastructure. Furthermore, he has excellent communication skills and is able to articulate his thoughts and ideas very well, and is always prepared to take the time to help his colleagues with anything they might have going on. Alex is truly a great asset to any team and I hope I’ll have the opportunity to work with him again in the future.
Alex is one of the best colleagues I have ever worked with. We have been working together not for a very long time though, I always get his great help to figure out all the puzzles. Alex is for sure professional as a data engineer, he is knowledgeable, helpful, dedicated, and most importantly – productive. He is like the fuel for the team, with his power the team runs like a rocket. He is always fast on reacting to all kinds of questions, always fast on fixing issues or problems found, and always patient to help others narrower the knowledge gaps. It’s quite big luck to have Alex in any team that is driven for delivery and big impact.
Alex is an engineer every company should have in his data & analytics team. Technically he is extremely experienced. Next to that Alex is pro-active, always willing to help others and faster than the light in delivering high quality work. Last but not least, Alex is an amazing enthusiastic and nice guy and we are absolutely going to miss him in our team!
Alexander Volok is one of the most creative, resilient, dedicated, and knowledgeable colleagues/team members I have had. He always works with the 'customer' in mind when thinking of solutions and thinking out of the box is one of his most valuable assets. Alexander is adapting to new technology at a fast pace and not afraid to use this. Alexander is missed deeply, not only as a (knowledgeable) colleague but also in person. I wish him all the best with his future assignment(s) and if you decide to hire him, it will be a certainty of success!
It was a pleasure working with Alex over the last year. His knowledge is very broad, both theoretical and practical . Especially his help on improving Azure DevOps pipelines and defining standards for working with source control was very valuable for our team. Besides technical impressive solutions, he is also very strong in documenting his work. Alex is a very nice guy, and I will surely miss him, his input and his enthusiasm.
Alex is for me the perfect example of a contractor you hire to get a job done well. You give Alex a few words and he directly understand what you need and will find a realistic well functioning solution for your requirements. Alex takes full ownership for a solution and will not stop until it's done. I never worked with someone with this amount of technical knowledge on Microsoft SQL; T-SQL and BI reporting.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Alex for the past year. In this year he helped improve the team on a technical level, with his broad set of skills on Azure DevOps and SQL Server. But also on a maturity level of how to implement those improvements in an Agile matter. The combination of not only delivering value, but also bringing the team as a whole to a higher level, made him an invaluable person. Within the short duration we worked together he left the team in a better state, and me as a better person.
It was a true pleasure to work with Alex. He is a very skilled and knowledgeable data engineer who always looks ahead on how to improve and innovate. He was part of our migration to Azure team and we really made a lot of progress. It is a shame that another assignment separated our paths, but hopefully he will be back some day.
Alex is one of the smartest and brightest BI/SQL developers I have seen over the period. Within no time, he understood the functional requirements of a project and delivered pretty generic solution well before time. He is very enthusiastic about the new trends in BI/SQL world and is very good at explaining the importance of them in simple terms.
Alex is very proactive, results-oriented, responsible, inquisitive, dependable and a technically sound engineer, who is always ready to put in all his energy and time in the job in hand.
