Technology and tools

I'm a software engineer, software architect, CTO, and technical co-founder. I love working with startups on going from idea to technical strategy and implementation. I enjoy cost-optimization and improving product quality. I'm more than happy to chat with you on improving your technical vision!


Building a team

I've started and led a software engineering team. I've been both engineering manager and lead software engineer. I've also started and led a support escalation team, initially handling front-line support for a new product.


Bootstrapping

I've bootstrapped multiple startups myself and often look for ways to build and grow without having to give up equity. I've been one of the first developers or a technical co-founder on multiple products.


Mentor Toolkit
JIRA
over 6 years of experience

I've heavily used Jira at small, medium, and large companies. I've implemented, customized, and led and managed teams using Jira. I know a lot of in's and out's about how to customize it and what works best for different types of teams.

NodeJS
over 6 years of experience

I'm a Typescript and NodeJS developer, and I also have experience with Python. I heavily utilize AWS infrastructure and have experience working on AWS as well.

Hubspot
over 3 years of experience

I've done multiple bi-directional software integrations with Hubspot into 3rd-party tools. I can work with you on integrating Hubspot with other things such as Quickbooks, your website, your project management system, and others.

I bridged the gap between 400+ software engineers and 250+ global support engineers. I worked on a team of about 4 people and was "boots-on-the-ground" representing the support team with engineering. I added additional development requirements to improve debuggability and serviceability in the software, consolidated support issues and worked with engineering to resolve them, and prepared the global support team for new feature launches.

Great talking with Greg, we got a ton of stuff done in a short amount of time. Really helped me validate some of the concerns I was having and provided very useful information I was struggling to find.

This is the most efficient call I have ever had!!! This guy has got efficiency down to perfection!!! So much value in 30 minutes personalized to the bones. The guy is literally drilling down to understand your issues as quickly as possible so he can help you at lighting speed. BAM, what's next question? He moves on. We went over the architecture stack..cost structure, AWS credits, showed him my AWS admin, Gave me feedback on the product, Founding team member issue help, Backend ideas how to build quicker through API integrations and more. I wish there was a way for Greg to teach other mentors how to run efficient calls like that lol. SUPERHERO this guy.

Very helpful tech mentoring. After our session, I got several ideas for new tools that will considerably speed up my project.
