Alexey Zakharov's Social Links


Alexey Zakharov is a Russian businessman, entrepreneur, and the co-founder of Superjob, a leading online recruitment portal in Russia. Together with his partner Sergey Gabestro, Zarkhov founded Superjob in 2000. They would go on to invest $1.5 million one year later in the company, a move that would help catapult it into Russia’s third largest online recruitment service, in terms of audience. The leading portal now has approximately 10 million unique users monthly, a statistic that shows how badly Russia was in need of such a platform.

Prior to founding Superjob, Zakharov served as the Deputy Director of the PIR Center. He also worked for the Moscow News, a job that introduced him to the internet. Zakharov attended Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO) and, upon learning of the internet, wrote his diploma on the subject. He was also assigned the task to research what, exactly, it was and why it was necessary. His report on the World Wide Web was the first at MGIMO, and maybe in Russia overall.

Since its inception, Superjob has continued to gain momentum and today has nearly 600,000 companies registered in their database. They doubled their earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EPITDA) in 2011, and the company’s evaluation is projected to be near $3 billion in the next couple of years.

I am driven and understand the importance of working hard, but I also make a point to bring energy and optimism to the office each and every day.

I think it is important for the Russian state to make moves to keep work within the country and stop importing foreign, cheap labor.
