Hello everyone, looking forward to being a part of this exciting group. My name is Neil Mitchell. I am the Director of Engineering and Operations at Buzz Points - an Austin, TX-based startup building an incentive and loyalty platform for Community Financial Institutions. I have 20+ years of engineering and leadership experience in established and startup companies. Being an engineer I love the "How" of building great products, but I deeply appreciate the importance of getting the "What and Why" right. In my spare time, I love sampling the craft beers of Austin and the USA, traveling and cycling although the pick-ups trucks of Texas do scare me however they are easier hear than the stealthy EMVs of CA. I'm looking forward to helping others out there grow and learn from this fantastic idea of sharing talent, knowledge, and experience.

Sorry, I am not currently available for mentoring sessions.
