Staff Software Engineer/Engineering Manager at Google

LinkedIn profile
Sorry, looks like I am fully booked!

    Entrepreneurial Technical Lead/Manager with broad experience in early stage projects. Strong track record of working with cross-functional teams, designing large scale distributed systems, building consumer-facing products, iterating rapidly based on experiment results and building happy, diverse, high-performing teams. I am a generalist at heart thanks to my background in academia, consulting and product development. My strengths include deep technical foundations, solid product sense and the ability to learn quickly about different business domains and industries. I enjoy work that is at the intersection of multiple disciplines, solving problems that are genuinely complex and require a cross-functional team to solve. When faced with adversity, I keep a positive, proactive attitude, maintaining focus on the mission and the team.
