Dmitry is the Marketing Lead at ZURB.
He snuck over to Zurb from Crossloop (a start-up down the street). He's a classic example of a software engineer turned to the dark side. Originally from Moscow, Russia, he immigrated to New Hampshire when he was 11. At 16 he got his first software development gig and for the next eight years he worked as software engineer for a number of companies.
He received his bachelors in Computer Science from the University of New Hampshire in 2004. After that he was a developer by day and a marketer for a small start-up by night, when he found that he loved the "night work" better than his "day work."
Leaving behind his comfortable day job, family and friends he decided to move across the country to Silicon Valley to work as a marketer for a start-up in the valley. Over the next two years, Dmitry helped Crossloop with their marketing while also getting his MBA from the Fisher Graduate School of International Business. He feels like he's on top of the world to be starting at ZURB.
In his spare time he plays classical guitar but has been getting heavy into the blues lately. He ran the Big Sur Marathon last April and hasn't turned down a good run since then. He hikes, bikes, and has some crazy moves on the dance floor.
