Hello! I’m Dmitry, and I’m a software engineer living in Boston, Massachusetts. By day I work for the Wikimedia Foundation (the nonprofit organization behind Wikipedia), leading the development of the Wikipedia Android app, and by night I develop software for digital forensics and data recovery. I’m passionate about delivering products that carry broad impact, and are used and loved by as many people as possible. My focus is on clean and minimal user interfaces, and of course clean and maintainable code.


Glad you asked! I am available for consulting or contracting (short or long term) in any of these areas:

  • Data recovery (any type of media from any computer system, particularly legacy systems: tapes, floppies, etc.)
  • Conversion of data from obsolete/legacy formats
  • Reverse engineering
  • Android app development
  • Windows app development
  • Embedded development

Feel free to contact me with your requests or ideas!


Some more information about me:


  • Mushroom foraging
  • Acoustic guitar
  • Absinthe
  • Karaoke
  • Gluten
  • Meat


  • Celery
  • A closed mind

Notes for recruiters

  • If it’s anything involving blockchain, it’s a “No” from me, dawg.

I am not a patent attorney. That would be the other Dmitry Brant. Although I do have some patents of my own.

I’ve got to hand it to Dmitry Brant, the man writes a mean utility.
