SPARROW Hires Yuri Anferov as Sr. Development Manager

SPARROW proudly announced that Yuri Anferov joined the firm as a Sr. Development Manager at the firm’s headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona last month. Mr. Anferov comes to SPARROW after spending the past 15 years in software development in Russia where he led a great number of successful cross-functional teams that built global payment solutions.  Mr. Anferov has extensive experience in risk management, fraud mitigation and PCI Compliance.

As a Sr. Development Manager at SPARROW, Mr. Anferov will focus on a variety of initiatives, ranging from payment security to tokenization and fraud prevention as well as Omni-channel application development. Additionally, Mr. Anferov is responsible for providing technical and product design leadership.  “SPARROW is not just another payment gateway. Instead, it is a completely new way of solving problems for ecommerce and retail merchants.  The SAAS (software-as-a-service) solution streamlines tasks for users, saves real dollars through interchange optimization and creates operational efficiencies for merchants. I have always had a passion for innovative ways to solve problems and it is SPARROW’s mission to do so.  This makes us perfectly aligned and I am excited by the opportunity.”  He declared.

“We are very excited to welcome Mr. Anferov and his family to the United States and to our SPARROW family.  Yuri’s skill set and ingenuity will amplify the innovation of our products and services.  His international perspective is also a great asset as we continue to grow globally. “Matanda Doss, CEO at SPARROW stated, “We embrace cultural differences, ethnic diversity and unique new points of view.  This provides us a dynamic workplace where our employees can express themselves personally and through their work.  I find our culture fosters free thinking and creative solutions that make us stronger than the competition.  Yuri is the perfect match for us.”
