After a few years of being a TPM, I moved over to helping lead a startup. I joined when they were only a few people and, honestly, I whipped them into shape. We went from a trello board with hundreds of stories to a process where teams would be laser-focused and we could deliver quickly. I guided the CEO, CTO and COO so that we could have a roadmap and understand where we wanted to go. I helped the Director of Product with guidance on UI/UX for the iOS ecosystem. I did code reviews and some stories for iOS. Honestly, I was all over the place and it was a blast.
Along with 15 years of experience, I bring along an objective style of management in software development.
