Congratulations technology leader! You’ve worked hard to hire the best, and create a great initial product. Now, as the team grows, things get more complicated. You need a mentor who knows what you’re facing, and is available to advise you. I now specialize in coaching engineering leaders to grow and scale teams while avoiding costly mistakes.
I’ve been hiring and leading engineering teams for over 18 years. I sold my first startup to Oracle and another to Match.com. I’ve hired engineering teams from scratch, and grown other teams to over 60 engineers. Now I'm available to mentor you at a fraction of the cost of hiring me full-time.
