CEO at QArea Company Maxim Garkavtsev joins Forbes Technology

Forbes Technology Council Is an Invitation-Only Community for World-Class CIOs, CTOs and Technology Executives.

January 25, 2018 — Maxim Garkavtsev, CEO of QArea (an internationally awarded custom software development and testing company) has been accepted into the Forbes Technology Council, a worldwide invitation-only community for top-class technology executives.

Maksim Garkavtsev is one of the pioneers of the IT industry in Eastern Europe. Having established QArea 17 years ago, he has been able to grow the company into a globally recognized leader in the sphere of IT outsourcing. He pushed for the early adoption of Golang as the primary programming language at QArea, and consequently introduced the focus on development of microservice-based software solutions. Additionally, he set a company-wide goal of achieving complete transparency in the company’s relationship with its clients. Since then, two proprietary software solutions were created: a time-tracking and project management tool for IT professionals (TimeGuard) and automated code assessment solution (CodeQuality for JIRA).

“I’m convinced that transparency has to be the #1 priority for any IT outsourcing company. You need the client to trust you, and the only way they will do this is if you’re upfront with them,” says Maksim Garkavtsev. “We start with developing an MVP for their project—paying extra attention to the GUI, which has to be impressive but minimalistic. Once that’s done, we expand and scale the software to meet the client’s needs, and Golang microservices are the best way to quickly move forward and scale up without developing long tails of technical debt and requiring obnoxious amounts of regressive testing.”

Maksim Garkavtsev’s inclusion in the Forbes Technology Council underscores his contributions to the IT industry and creates unique opportunities for Mr. Garkavtsev to share his valuable insights on technology, software, and his practical experience of creating positive changes in the technology and IT outsourcing industries.

Forbes Councils combines a high-touch approach to community management perfected by the team behind Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) with the extensive resources and global reach of Forbes. Thus, Forbes Council members get access to the people, benefits and expertise they need to grow their businesses.

“I’m excited to learn more about the ideas and thoughts of my peers on this council, and share the insights we discover together with the help of Forbes,” comments Maksim Garkavtsev on his inclusion.

QArea stimulates the development of high-performing and feature-packed software solutions that help businesses upgrade their efficiency. Founded in 2001, the company accentuates technology innovations with omni-channel range of software development and testing services. The inclusion of the Company’s CEO in the Forbes Technology Council presents an honorable recognition of the high-quality of its management and well-rounded approach.
