Innovation, collaboration, transformation: Finding your happy place at CloudSmiths

Anton Kopytov is the Executive Head of the MarTech Product and Solution Engineering team at CloudSmiths. He is based in England and works on a number of UK- and SA-based strategic accounts. Anton’s role at the Dynamic Technologies group company centres around developing innovative solutions that incorporate data analytics, software engineering, and intelligence with comprehensive system integration across key platforms such as Salesforce, Google, and Microsoft. In short, it’s a hub of innovative thinking, agile solutions, and dynamic processes.

Intriguing, but what does it all mean? “By focusing on digital transformation consulting, we assist our clients and prospects overcome business challenges through data and technology-driven solutions, thereby fostering sustainable growth,” explains Anton.

He adds, “My career has always been guided by a quest to harness data and technology to solve complex business problems and drive growth. With a foundation in mathematics and economics, I've focused on crafting innovative solutions across various sectors, including media, consumer goods, and digital transformation. At the same time, this has honed my skills in CRM, digital marketing, and integration technologies, which has led to significant achievements such as transforming business models and boosting revenue growth in challenging markets.”

Anton was attracted to CloudSmiths because of the entrepreneurial spirit and dedication to data engineering and software development he saw there. It was a perfect match for his aspirations to design and implement solutions at scale. “The shared vision and instant personal chemistry with the CloudSmiths leadership team sealed my decision to join and contribute to effective client transformations,” he says. “At CloudSmiths there’s a relentless drive for innovation that I like. It’s a dynamic environment where we have a blend of challenge, collaboration, and the pursuit of excellence that I find truly rewarding.”

His passion for what he does, and his obvious enjoyment of it, are inspiring. He says, “My goal is to leave a lasting impact on the businesses we serve, driving growth and efficiency through strategic innovation. I am thrilled to play a pivotal role in CloudSmiths’ global expansion and growth, fostering the emergence of a new generation of leaders in the process. The opportunity to lead and inspire teams and create an environment where creativity and strategic thinking flourish while witnessing the impact of our efforts on clients’ successes, fuel my passion and serve as a reminder of the value of our work at CloudSmiths.”

With easy access to London’s fascinating history and culture, Anton spends much of his spare time immersed in the rich tapestry of London. He says, “I enjoy guided thematic tours and sharing narratives about Dickensian London with friends.” He adds, “My passion for wine leads me to tasting adventures, exploring wine regions, and connecting with vineyard owners. I wholeheartedly support my children's pursuits in filmmaking and cheerleading, celebrating their creativity and drive, and I am a drummer at heart, so I find rhythm both in music and in the serene English countryside, which I love exploring. My wife and I explore or hike with our dog as our way of navigating new terrains together.”

In addition to his varied interests and activities outside of work, Anton enjoys the energy of CloudSmiths’ London office. He says, “Engaging with colleagues and building on each other’s ideas, along with frequent visits to HQ in South Africa, has woven me deeply into the fabric of CloudSmiths’ organisation and is enriching my connection with the teams at home and in South Africa.”

It's clear that the varied and inclusive culture at CloudSmiths and the way they embrace an international workforce to fit their global business, make it easy to find your happy place in work as well as life.
