I am an engineer who has founded three startups in the last 10 years. The first two were funded by Sequoia Capital & YCombinator. The current one is backed by Accel Partners. I have also worked at three other growth stage tech startups.
Having seen multiple product lifecycles, I have experienced the pain of creating & scaling products from scratch. Most of my experience and expertise comes from Distributed Systems.
On the non-tech side, I love building teams and going through the zero-to-one phase in a startup.
Feel free to ask anything about the YCombinator application process, entrepreneurship, building engineering teams, scaling products or anything else you are wondering about.
