Increasing your effectiveness as an Engineer or EM

First Session:

Senior Engineering Manager at Vitally


Circle Description

I have been working in startups in Silicon Valley for most of my career. I am currently working at a high growth company (Quizlet) as a Senior Engineering Manager of the Mobile teams. My passion is in creating and building engineering teams that are high functioning. I also spend a lot of time thinking about process and creating data that tells a story about the work you do. I have worked in dysfunctional companies so have a lot of experience dealing with difficult situations. Quizlet is a high functioning company that prides itself in putting people first, which is the key to building a successful company. Some topics we can discuss are: Bringing value as you move up the ladder Managing or working with difficult people Jira tips and tricks Giving difficult feedback Overcoming imposter syndrome as an EM Sponsorship vs Mentorship Managing upwards & communicating with stakeholders as an EM
