Waves appoints new Head of Product Design

Igor Pugachevskiy has over a decade’s experience in design, including the last four in the fintech industry.

Alongside a series of recent high-profile hires, Waves is also welcoming a new Head of Product Design this week.

Igor Pugachevskiy has extensive experience in the field. He started out at Art. Lebedev Studio, a renowned industrial and graphic design studio founded by Artemy Lebedev in 1995. Since then he has worked at Yandex.Money, Russia’s largest electronic payment service; Ozon.Travel, Russia’s foremost online travel agency; and Tinkoff bank. He was an art director at Ozon and SuperJob.

Over the last four years, Igor has gained in-depth experience of the fintech industry, including developing trading systems and instruments for financial institutions. He was an early adopter of blockchain technology.

‘Blockchain is a communication environment,’ he explains. ‘I am inspired to find opportunities to use technology to solve previously unresolved problems, to open new opportunities and directions for the development of human individuality and entrepreneurship. I am infinitely grateful to join Sasha Ivanov’s team. Working on Waves is an opportunity to implement the best communication experience, making it convenient, accessible and useful for everyone.

‘The core value of Waves is a large community of progressive and modern people distributed around the world, united by a common belief in technology and cryptography. I cannot wait to meet and communicate with each of you, to hear your ideas, thoughts and comments. Together we will improve our present and create the future. We have chosen a difficult and fascinating path, in which absolute transparency, honesty and security are our main priorities.’

‘A very big welcome to Igor, who joins our expanding Moscow team,’ says Sasha. ‘We are hiring the very best talent from the relevant industries to make Waves the pre-eminent custom tokens blockchain platform — in Russia and throughout the world. As we see our community growing rapidly, it is very encouraging to see the future of Waves in such good hands.’
