Hi there,

My name is Marina, I’m a software developer focusing on development for Apple platforms, living in Copenhagen. I’ve been in tech for almost 15 years. Working with Apple platforms since 2011, leading teams and building apps & SDKs.

I’m a Unix geek turned Apple nerd 🤓 Topics I care about include privacy, equal opportunity, and climate change 💚

Besides offering consulting services, you can find me curating  iOS Code Review newsletter, building Away for Twitter app, and co-organizing Copenhagen Cocoa meetups.

My latest 9-to-5 adventure was leading the iOS team at Storytel for 4 years, supporting company’s growth from a small startup to a 500-person company. I’ve also built B2B products at Citrix/GetGo, led consumer app development at PrimeApp and built apps for over a dozen of companies at Russia’s largest agency iD East. I’ve also maintained and ran the iOS efforts of open-source Say Their Names project ✊🏽. My CV and references can be found on LinkedIn.

I’ve recently been interviewed on AppForce1 podcast - check it out if you’re curious about my journey.

I occasionally speak at meetups/conferences and host workshops. Here’s the list of my past and future speaking engagements:
