Kagan Yilmaz

I am a seasoned and creative technologist who has built leading-edge technologies in both start-ups and large corporations. I hold a BS in Computer Science. I also acquired a MBA in line with my keen interest in financial products and investment. I have extensive hands-on experience in all stages of application development life cycle, including logical and physical architecture modeling, OO Structures (SOLID, DRY), data mining, performance optimization, application integration, social marketing, planning, implementation (Agile/Scrum & Waterfall), and support.

My passion is algorithms, research and optimization for revenue, relevance and user-experience. Big fan of the chess game. Lived & worked in 4 different countries. Always full of new ideas and hungry for more knowledge.
