Rays team has a strong technical background in computing, Sergey will help Rays team to better understand CG market and trends, together create a modern product for the industry using distributed computing technologies.

We asked Sergey two questions regarding joining Rays.

Sergey, what made you interested in Rays?

  • I was interested in the underlying technology of distributed computing and unlimited scalability it brings (Sergey is referring to the Sonm Fog Computing Platform, used in the heart of Rays). The idea that people are lending their PCs to other people and companies without the middleman looks attractive to me. Beautiful concept of fog computing from my point of view.

What about the opportunities you see in companying with Rays?

  • I do not like to make predictions about how it will work out, instead, I prefer to work with projects that seem interesting personally to me, emotionally familiar, then you devote yourself and see how things will go. Intuitive approach. Funk-style agile.

Good luck to Sergey on his new venture!
