BALÁZS KESZTHELYI

BALÁZS KESZTHELYI

Founder & CEO

Programming since the age of 14, still passionate about performance almost 20 years later. Co-inventor of more than 10 patent applications and contributor to at least 2 standards. Thanks to his journey via the topics of 3D graphics, physical simulation, GPU programming, image&video compression and deep learning he builds on a wide basis of knowledge when architecting custom algorithmic solutions. Additionally to his technical prowess, also experienced throughout the entire R&D pipeline from management perspective too, involving business development, product ownership, IP capture and standardization. After his tenures as a contributor to Broadcom's own GPU IP in Cambridge as well as a Head of Advanced R&D at V-Nova in London he landed on his feet as freelancer, and currently works on bringing back home the most difficult technical challenges to his TechnoLynx team in Budapest.
His work is his hobby, but would definitely love to hike more. Interested in economics and history too. An amateur novelist, although not a great one at that. Better at twisting the bedside tales with dark humour than telling them to his son proper. Allegedly has some cats.

THE TECHNICAL TEAM

ATTILA KOVÁCS

ATTILA KOVÁCS

R&D Software Engineer

Attila holds an MSc in electrical engineering from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, and he joined us from Bosch. He has hands on experience with numerical optimization techniques and computer vision problems, both classical and deep learning based approaches. He has also participated in GPU implementation projects.
You tell him about an address in Hungary, and he starts explaining to you the scenery and topology of the place from heart. He was a bit afraid of looking too pompous on the team photos, but we reassured him that it should be all right...

GÁBOR MOLNÁR

GÁBOR MOLNÁR

R&D Software Engineer

Gábor holds an MSc in electrical engineering from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, and he previously worked for Accenture, SAP and Ericsson. He has hands on experience with complex deep learning problems including image synthesis via generative adversarial networks, whilst at the same time he has contributed to considerable speedups that we achieved via GPU optimizations.
He approaches social issues with great sensitivity, and is well versed on pop cultural references, including the best YouTube channels about serial killers and places where people should not have gone yet they did.

LEVENTE GÖNCZ

LEVENTE GÖNCZ

R&D Software Engineer

Levente is originally an electrical engineer with a BSc degree but he also holds a co-operative MSc in autonomous systems from ELTE and the Aalto University in Finland, where he was also working as a teaching assistant as part of the EIT Digital Masters School. He previously worked for Knorr-Bremse and at SZTAKI, working on change detection problems, which was also the topic of his thesis. He also gained hands on experience with deep learning topics like anomaly detection, auto-encoders and classifiers.
Amateur footballer, made it to National League 3 previously, almost certainly scored more goals than the rest of our team combined. Health insurance hazard.

MÁTÉ DÓZSA

MÁTÉ DÓZSA

R&D Software Engineer

Máté has a Computer Scientist BSc from ELTE. Previously he was working for companies like Nokia, Lufthansa and EPAM, after which he went back to earn a MSc at BME this time, where his focus was domain transfer with deep learning. His primary interest at the moment is machine learning, but from his previous jobs he brought on board considerable practical experience ranging C++ to containerized micro-service architectures. He learned things about high-scale industrial application, before joining TechnoLynx to have fun.
He likes reading, swimming, hiking and playing football. Also learned the hard way that biking to the office may not be the best idea after all. Behind the facet of a shy, introverted person, sparkles of witty remarks to be found, beware!

SÁNDOR PIGAI

SÁNDOR PIGAI

R&D Software Engineer

Sándor is an experienced Linux/C++ developer with 10+ years of experience at Morgan Stanley's algorithmic trading department in addition to his work history at Siemens and NAVNGo. He has a good command of C/C++, Python, and JAVA programming languages.
When it comes to familiarizing himself to new R&D fields he is just as enthusiastic as the fresh graduates are, but despite his attempts to conceal himself as one, his experience shines through on topics related to project planning and software architecting.
He is coming to work via bike everyday, and he is the rare kind of person, especially in Hungary, who manages to eat optimally sized meals rather than overindulging himself on a daily basis.

ÁKOS RÚZSA

ÁKOS RÚZSA

R&D Software Engineer

Ákos holds a Computer Science BSc from ELTE. In parallel to being part of our team, he is also working on his MSc studies in the field of Artificial Intelligence. Before starting at TechnoLynx, he gained practical experience working for Nokia. His main interests lie in the fields of machine learning, as well as both classical and deep learning-based computer vision. He has always been a math nerd, which led to him having a solid mathematical base knowledge that is to his benefit when trying to solve complex problems.
Beginner guitarist. Has been like that for a couple of years, without making much progress. His humour improves linearly as he feels more comfortable around a certain group. He frequently reminds us that despite endemic corruption and our national pessimism, Hungary is a most civilized country after all, should you find the right points of comparison.

OLEKSANDRA TSEPILOVA

OLEKSANDRA TSEPILOVA

R&D Software Engineer

Oleksandra is currently a Computer Science student at Ukrainian Catholic University (4th year of the BSc program). She likes to take part in programming competitions and whenever she does - she is in the winners list.
As for non-related to programming passions - she is quite fond of teaching (she was working as a TA for Calculus and Probability & Statistics course in her university). She enjoys finding new points of view for the old problems, which helped her to explain complex topics in few words.

THE MANAGEMENT TEAM

HANADI SOLIEMAN

HANADI SOLIEMAN

Technical Project Manager

Hanadi came from academia to TechnoLynx; previously worked as Research and Teaching Assistant mentoring many international students. She is a Ph.D. candidate researching the automated classification of arrhythmia. She has an M.Sc. in Bioengineering systems for Prosthetics and Rehabilitation and a B.Sc. in Mechatronics and Robotics, with one-year training in AI Leadership and Ethics. She is a Robotics trainer for the World Robot Olympiad and is passionate about volunteering for youth empowerment.
Enthusiastic about using AI in Medicine, especially for detecting and monitoring psychological disorders. Watches too many crime and serial killer documentaries and aim to automate the early recognition of criminogenic thinking. So be careful; she's watching closely.

MARIA EVLAKHOVA

MARIA EVLAKHOVA

Sales and Recruitment Lead

Maria has an engineering education, and graduated from St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, but decided to realize herself as a recruiter. From an early age, she was interested in mathematics, physics, and robotics. She has experience in recruiting, sourcing, and processing candidates in a recruitment agency, but has always wanted to be an internal recruiter.
Holds the Guinness record of reading Master and Margarita, and would definitely make an excellent professor of Liberal Arts.
