Hello 👋

Sorry, looks like I have been booked!

    A results-focused, detail-oriented senior engineer leader with 10+ years of experience in all phases of the project design/development/deployment cycle including sales and client relationship, requirements definition, application architecture, team management, testing, deployment, and hosting. In recent years I have been working as a senior engineer leader for different kind and size of teams. I think the most valuable asset of the company is people. I am passionate about people interaction and behavior. I am focused on mentorship. I've experience hiring people, coaching people and teams, helping teams to make good decisions, empower people to be engaged to challenges, empower teams to have more autonomy in their daily basis. Before solving the problem rightly, I believe in solving the right problem. I worked in multiple proofs of concepts, experiments for product and pilots. I’m experienced in setting sensible and effective Engineering and Product processes. I’ve built, managed and mentored product teams with different missions and sizes.
