Hello 👋

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

    Hi everyone! I'm currently leading engineering at a Series A YC startup and before this I built and scaled engineering groups at New Relic. I love mentoring and learning more about people, other companies, and unique cultures. Growing, coaching, and motivating engineers has been my passion for years now and I'd love to help prevent you from making some of the mistakes I've made along the way! :-)

    Experience

    VP of Engineering

    Castle

    Jan 2021 - current

    Senior Director of Engineering

    New Relic

    Jul 2014 - Jan 2021

    Started 4 months before New Relic's IPO and grew a variety of teams and organizations, from very back-end heavy agent teams to full stack and UI-focused teams. My two favorite roles were leading the 12 teams and ~ 75 engineers responsible for building APM, New Relic's main/flagship product, and then evolving that into a global engineering group that owned all of New Relic's UIs across all of our products as we simultaneously reinvented our business model, packaging, and pricing. Built processes around talent evaluation, recruiting, diversity, and peer support/mentoring, and instilled a culture that combined constant incremental delivery, shipping with confidence, and cultivating joy in our work.

    Technical Director

    The New Group

    Oct 2009 - Jul 2014

    Led all development and engineering work for a digital marketing agency, including client-facing architectural leadership.

    You're a great engineer.
