Hello everyone, my name is Tancho, and I am an engineering manager at Symphony. We're a FinTech company focusing on the banking industry providing a secure communication channel within and around banks. I've been an engineer for most of my career but in the past ~7 years I also was in charge of one of more teams (platform or product oriented), leading teams with sizes spanning from 3 - 20 people. My main focus at work is improving the environment, by reducing stress levels by automation. I believe that Once you leave engineers to do what they're good at, and reduce stress levels coming from product, client and releases, they will be the best at what they do. I strongly believe in agile way of working, and taking gradual steps to scale with quality.

Hey, I'm available every Thursday at 1:00 PM (GMT)
