LinkedIn profile

Unfortunately, I don't have any available slot for the next 4 weeks

I am an agile engineering leader with 15+ years of experience leading engineering orgs and delivering on strategic initiatives. I love my role as a technologist, one who is always learning, and as a people manager and leader scaling orgs and cultivating high performing teams. I had the unique opportunity to be part of 2 successful IPOs - Medallia (NYSE: MDLA), Opower (NYSE: OPWR, acquired by Oracle) I started my engineering career as a software engineer, delivering engineering solutions to business problems and then gradually moved towards leading engineering teams to solve bigger problems. I believe in being a multiplier for my team, helping/guiding the team to do their best. I take pride in my work. Key capabilities: ▪ Experience establishing and scaling teams and organizations ▪ Hands-on "engineering manager" with a focus on engineering hygiene/operations/delivery while staying abreast of market and product needs. ▪ Experienced “people manager” leading cross-functional teams (60+) and building and retaining talented individuals. ▪ Comfortable leading full-stack teams: front-end teams (react/angular/graphql, node, modern html/css and mobile web frameworks) and back-end teams (using enterprise java, big-data and microservices/SOA). ▪ Experience leading large initiatives ($8 million budget) across web, mobile, social and cloud. ▪ Self-starter, entrepreneurial and agile, especially when dealing with ambiguity. ▪ Action oriented, results driven.

You're a great engineer.
