You're a great enginner.
Become a great engineering leader.

I’m a Director of Engineering at BitSight (Lisbon Office). Previously, I’ve started a small consultancy shop and worked for Talkdesk, Altran Technologies, OutSystems, Tekever and GE, I’ve been in the industry for 18+ years and leading teams and/or practices for 10+ years. Before that, I like to think I was a decent enough software engineer.

Hey, I'm available every Tuesday at 10:00 AM (GMT)
