Sonja Kochina

Lead Designer

Saint Petersburg, Russian Federation
The most important thing for me is the result. I'm highly responsible for how I do my job. Deadline is also urgent for me so I plan my work day accurately.

It's also important to be a professional and stay an interesting person for myself and others. I'm fond of singing jazz and listening to different music, doing sports and skateboarding.

My mission is to make the world better and convenient.
