Hello 👋

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

    I'm building out a new team within Uber that's tackling the fragmented Freight industry. We stand on the shoulders of giants, applying Uber's technology to B2B and the Enterprise. I've previously spent time at Google managing a team of Solutions Engineers for Adwords' largest customers, and also co-founded a now public company in the same space. I'd love to exchange ideas: I always find it exciting to learn from others, and share some of the lessons I've learned over the years. I've been leading and managing teams for the past 20 years, but find that the craft of Software Engineering is ever evolving, so one should never rely on "experience". Keep learning, keep evolving. Thanks to Plato for helping us to do so!
