Hello 👋
My next available slot is

  • Friday 10th Dec4:30 PM (GMT)

An established engineering leader, tech mentor, startup advisor for tech and product roadmap. Experience and interest with product development with a focus on UX and customers. My responsibilities revolve around 1:1s, engineer growth, active code contribution, championing technical vision, stakeholder management, technical product management and release coordination. My career journey has spanned across many types of product development roles. I started as a SDET, moved on to do frontend development, became a full-stack engineer and quickly learnt to manage complex software projects and lead technical teams. I'm the go-to for my product and engineering managers when they need a difficult problem solved and solved reliably with trust, autonomy, mastery and reliability. I was also the President for my company Toastmasters Club. I like posting about all things food on my Instagram page @foodyatra. I am a tech + product enthusiast who loves reading and consuming content. Marty Cagan is one of my favorite authors.
