Anya Derbakova

Hearful Technologies

With over 10 years of experience in academic research (MIT CSAIL, Brookhaven National Lab, UNC) and corporate worlds, Anya is crazy about open source software. During her time at IBM and BlueCross and BlueShield of NC, she worked on embedded software development, integration solutions, mobile apps, and blockchain development and has now moved on to working as CTO at Hearful Technologies. Anya’s role as CTO has allowed her to manage a team of developers, dabble in NLP and web scraping, improve security and scalability of Hearful’s AWS infrastructure, while leveraging her extensive patent/research work. When not tinkering with technology, Anya can be found gardening, humming random Russian pop songs, or training her cat Felix new tricks.
