Hi everyone! My name is Edmond Lau and I am currently the founder and fractional CTO at Mossa Labs. I focus on helping early stage startups, drive product and engineering roadmaps and strategies. I was the VP of Engineering at Tread, the CTO at DealTap, the CTO at WorldGaming (acquired), Director of Architecture and R&D at Turner Broadcasting, and worked various senior architecture + R&D roles at American Express. At one point I had grown teams of 50+ software engineers and product managers. Looking forward to meeting you!
