Maria (The Queen of Staffing) was born in Kiev, Ukraine when it was still a Soviet country. She came to the States as a teenager. Her roots inspire her unconventional, creative approach and desire to include a lovely mini bar at the office.
After college and a few years in staffing, Maria knew that recruiting was her calling. However, only by starting her own company was she truly able to do staffing “Dubov-style.” Maria’s dream was to create a fun place where IT professionals of all experience levels could find a market expert to help them make smarter career moves. She wanted MMD offices to be a safe harbor for them to drop by for a cocktail and talk about their work needs. Finally, in February 2006, MMD Services Inc. was born.
Maria treats staffing as a match-making service for professionals where both parties involved get equal attention. She believes in keeping a close eye on the market trends so that her expert advice stays fresh and relevant.
Maria belongs to a giant network of talented IT professionals along with both established and startup companies. She offers interesting solutions to work dilemmas. She is happy to offer advice to any IT professional and make helpful introductions whether they are working with MMD Services or not. She believes in paying it forward.
