Who I work with

I work with software engineering leaders at small -- seed through series B -- and rapidly growing startups. Our clients are passionate, curious, and cherish learning and growing. They strive for excellence.
They understand that what got them here won't get them where they need to go. They know that in order to continue their journey, they need to invest in their people, systems, and processes.
Our clients know that the road to success is through a combination of doing the right things, and doing them well. They do know that shortcuts exist, and welcome the opportunity to use them when appropriate.
