Summary

Gabor has been involved in start-ups since, at the age of 17, he developed LyricsAMP, the number one downloaded plug-in for the digital music application Winamp 3. He was quickly recruited to MoodLogic by Secret Sauce Partners co-founder Zoli Piroska, where he assumed a key role in the product’s re-design and re-architecture, which was instrumental in selling MoodLogic software for inclusion on all Sony Vaio desktop computers in the US and Europe and integration in other Sony software. He later joined Zoli as the Chief Architect for Greener One. Most recently, Gabor served as a Senior Software Engineer at EPAM, a company providing offshore engineering services. At EPAM, Gabor led numerous R&D projects for Microsoft Corporation and has spoken at numerous Microsoft development conferences. Gabor also worked as a Development Lead for UBS AG, Europe’s second largest bank and helped bootstrap the offshore operations of its Fixed Income, Cash & Collaterals IT group in Kiev, Ukraine.

Recommendations

A preview of what LinkedIn members have to say about Gabor:

  • I can highly recommend Gabor and his team for quick turnaround of softward projects that require creative thinking around the utilization of new technologies. We hired the crew at EPAM to develop a sample for TechEd EMEA, and the final result exceeded our expectations and gave us some great marketing exposure for our new product.
  • Gabor worked with us on the World of Warcraft Add-on Studio. He is a very creative, smart, and responsible individual. He and his team understood our requirements well, and went away and delivered on the project very quickly. It was obvious that he has great technical acumen, and I personally enjoyed working with Gabor very much.
