Kristina's Story

A Maps and Android GDE shares her professional journey and how she stays involved with the developer community
Maps GDE Kristina Simakova works as an independent consultant and spends 60% of her time as an Android manager for a consulting firm in Norway. In that role, she helps Android consultants on their projects. “It has been a new experience,” Kristina says. “I’m suddenly responsible for 14 people and have switched from coding to being a manager.
