Maxim Pekarsky

product manager and engineer

My passion in life is to craft impactive, valuable, memorable experiences with code. I primarily use Node/Express.js, Rails, Vue.js, MongoDB, Firebase, and Javascript. I am currently building and growing Hackterms, the Urban Dictionary for programming terms. In the past, I've built apps to help users find fitness inspiration, simulate traffic flow, and hunt bloodthirsty Space Squares.

I think about my users first and my tools second. Before I start building, I draw on data, observation, and design principles to develop empathy for my users. I'm better at shipping functioning, valuable products than engineering technically brilliant solutions.

I've previously worked on product and community teams at Codecademy, the NYC Mayor's Office, and Indiegogo.
