As Software Developer, Rita is responsible for the development and maintenance of core features of the Radius+ website. Prior to joining Radius+, Rita spent a year on scholarship in China studying Mandarin and taught English and Mandarin to non-natives. In 2013, She moved to Manhattan and worked in residential real estate as well as freelancing in illustration, graphic design, web design and development. Rita earned a B.A. in Linguistics from Dnipropetovsk National University in Ukraine, and speaks Russian and English fluently, as well as Spanish, Mandarin and Japanese on various levels of proficiency. She has a passion for languages and views them (both human and programming) as a library of patterns and puzzles to be cracked/deciphered and put back together. When Rita isn’t crafting our Radius code, she enjoys discovering all New York City has to offer including its art, fashion, design, dance and just walking around the city.
