Hello everyone, I'm Brice Wu, currently Head of Engineering for Komodo Health (as the name implies, we're a Health Tech startup that's focused on patient level analytics based on our map of 320M+ patient lives). Prior to Komodo, I worked leading a variety of Product / Data / Program teams within Double Click Display Ad Services within Alphabet / Google for eight years, and before that, I got my MBA from UVA. Happy to talk through rapidly scaling organizations (Komodo has gone from 5 to 75 ENG while I've been there), making the transition to first / second / third line management, etc. I've been honored to have a great set of mentors throughout my career (some of whom have been working with me for the past 20 years), so I'm more than happy to pass this forward to the broader community.

Brice is not available in the next 4 weeks.
