Hello folks - I'm Courtney Hemphill, Partner and Technical Lead at Carbon Five. I sort of oscillate between SF and NYC where two of our larger offices exist. I have been a software developer since 1999, dabbling in many technical stacks; first at a startup and now as a consultant. I have worked for companies at their early stages like Grand Rounds, MasterClass, and Echosign, and currently am working with teams at Moody's, Compass, and Attune Insurance. I would say my specialties are helping to hire and grow teams, evolving the organizational structure alongside changing architectures, developing the management skills of great technical minds, and most recently working with teams migrating their architecture to services and APIs. We're also doing quite a bit of work with Protocol Labs (IPFS and Filecoin) and Coinbase so I'm learning (scratching the surface) of distributed web work.

Sorry, I am not currently available for mentoring sessions.
