🤟 Projects

Movie recommendation system

Together with the team, we created from scratch movie recommendations and personal ratings in Yandex (on the main page, in search and Alice). I was responsible for the quality of recommendations, architecture design, measurement of the recommendations quality and contributed to the product design.


I was responsible for the quality of the Business directory and search in Yandex.Maps: quality measurement, data actualization, search improvement on broad queries ([where to eat], [coffee], etc.), launches in new regions (Africa, Middle East, Europe).
