About Aleksandr Iurev

Aleksandr Iurev

I am a serial entrepreneur, with many years experience in launching new startups. The most recent, of course, is Pocketfied, which I am certain will radically disrupt the mobile app development industry with its highly innovative technology and service. Since 2017, my work has been primarily focused on and dedicated to the market in the U.S., which I am happy to call my home.

Overall, I have 20 years of experience in the IT sector, as well as in DevOps, and Information Security. I cut my teeth in the Tech world by working in IT security for the largest banks in Russia as well as for top IT companies. That experience protecting my clients from hacker attacks is one reason why I still today attach top priority to building secure systems so that the user can be certain they are protected.
