Entrepreneur / Intrapreneur / Architect / Developer. Pick your choice.
I’ve helped other companies succeed for 20 years by being an architect/developer. I’ve done that by not just staring at the task at hand, but also understanding the business value of what I do. It’s not rare that I’ve suggested changes just to improve the business. No matter if the benefit is just in-house or for the customer.
I’ve made competitors go quiet when my CEO demonstrated our new product that I had made in record time.
I’ve failed at one startup. Learned immensely from it. Am now building my second startup with all the wisdom from the first.
