I have a few goals for myself in seeking a new position. Inspire others more deeply by supporting and honing a product vision. Learn to better drive engineers to technical excellence over shiny-object syndrome. Better understand and inspire engineers by encouraging and directing their creative drive. Build a productive environment where high output and constant product feedback drive success or failure. In short, I want to see teams succeed. I'm inspired by user-first vision, and a clear pathway to success. I enjoy serving as an interface between product teams and engineering teams.
In this role, I lead teams of 2-6 frontend & backend engineers in both creating and maintaining products. Each day I balance consensus with pushing for results, and serve as a driver and source of technical information for making the right product decisions.
I took on this role to continue growing my technical skillset and challenge myself with management and leadership responsibilities. I grew the team to provide a higher standard of support. My personal growth opened up an opportunity for me to have a wider impact in the organization by changing roles to work directly with engineering teams.
In this role I provided personal technical support for the help desk and network inventory product suite for tens of thousands of IT pros across the world. I was an IT-guy for the IT-guys. Deep-diving into our technically complex products was fulfilling for me. As our product suite grew and expanded I honed a strong interpersonal skillset that tuned me in to how to handle conflict and focus on results.
In this role I provided general application, email, hardware, and network support to a small business. I applied previously acquired skills to simplify the team's daily tasks. I also rolled out a new company website.
