Hello 👋

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

    Over 14+ years industry experience building mobile sdk's, micro-services and cloud applications. Currently, at Facebook I lead a team of amazing Partner Engineers working on diverse set of initiatives which are in different stages of product life cycle. My team strongly believe in not having to repeat the same kind of work and as a result we push ourselves to get out of the job by scaling, automating and making all our work get to cruise mode. Strong experience in building high performing teams from scratch, hiring top talent, growing and mentoring engineers & managers, partnering on product roadmap & strategy, defining technology vision and strategy, influencing across many cross-functional and remote teams.
