In this edition of “Jeengster Spotlight”, we’re excited to introduce our Product Data Analyst, Artyom Nazginov!
Artyom was born in the USSR, in the region that is now Latvia. He came to Israel in 2002 with an organization called “Naale”. It enabled young children to move to Israel without their parents. Artyom grew up at a boarding school in the north of Israel, in Kibbutz Amir. After graduating from high school, he served 3 years in the Israeli army and then attended Bar Ilan University, where he received his B.A. in Economics. Artyom worked as an economist for about 9 years before joining Jeeng in early 2021 as a Product Data Analyst.
Artyom currently lives in Haifa with his wife and a very beautiful 6-month old kitten named Simyon.

5. One piece of advice you’d give your younger self

10. What’s your favorite book and why?
The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. It’s well-written and really explains what it was like during Soviet times. He wrote this book in the 1930’s, but it was published posthumously. It has been called one of the masterpieces of the 20th century.

I hate it when people make loud sounds, like when they blow their noses loudly or clear their throats. Also, nail biting. It’s so gross.
