Participants Geo
Yandex gave us the opportunity to meet amazing, passionate professionals who became our colleagues. Some have remained our colleagues outside of Yandex, whilst others have remained friends.

Since leaving the company, our primary goal is to strengthen existing bonds and forge new relationships with other like-minded people. This is why we decided to create an infrastructure where Yandex alumni can find, meet, and help each other further on.

Companies and projects come and go; people are the treasure that is to be kept.
