In 2016, Ring’s Research and Development Center opened in Ukraine. Kira Rudik was appointed as the Chief Operating Officer. Now she describes it as the most exciting experience of her life.
Since that time, Ring Ukraine, which creates high-tech smart home security systems, has hired over 700 professionals in Ukraine. The company has flourished significantly, and Kira Rudik was the person who managed to persuade Ring that it must have its research branch in Ukraine.

s success is connected with Rudiks activity and her lifestyle. Speed, hardworking, and the complete lack of self-pity are things which guide Rudik as a manager and entrepreneur.
“The central principle of the best manager is the absence of self-pity. You will never lead people behind you without self-sacrifice. You have to be the first to come to work and the last to leave. The leader must take a punch and keep it. It is unpleasant to accept, but that is the truth” (Kira Rudik).
