Sorry, looks like I am fully booked!

    My name is Wissam and I'm a Senior Engineering Manager at GitHub, leading a team that is responsible for our global scale public APIs. I've had the privilege to work remotely full-time for over 4 years now, including at two of the biggest remote companies: GitHub and InVision. This has helped shape my thoughts and philosophy on scaling engineering organizations and managing remote teams. I focus on fostering strong engineering cultures in distributed organizations to increase impact.
