Rail Yard Works

is a one-man dev studio, and we build all sorts of web & mobile apps, sites, and services.

What is a one-man studio?

This means that I am the only full-time employee of this company. Always.

Even though I'm the only full-time employee, this doesn't mean that I work alone. I have friends from all over the world with all kinds of backgrounds: UX/UI design, DevOps, front-end, back-end, marketing, and project/product management. So when I or my clients need extra help, e.g. niche expertise or extra pair of hands to meet their deadlines, I bring them on board on a freelance basis.

Who am I?

My name is Nikita, I'm a software developer based in Brighton πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§.

Over the last few years, I’ve worked on a number of projects of different sizes in all sorts of companies, including multinational consulting companies, large retail brands, and small to medium-sized start-ups.

I'm currently taking on roles that are a mix of leadership and active engineering, where I focus mainly on setting up proper dev processes, building teams, and getting products to market.
