About

Hi, I'm Ankita! 👋🏽

I'm passionate about teaching front-end technologies and growing people in their careers.

I have over 10 years of experience in the tech industry, starting with helping small businesses develop apps. I transitioned from a Senior Developer to a Solution Architect, aka Staff Developer and then decided to transition to leadership. I have been leading teams and helped define the future of FinTech in Canada.

Previously, I worked as a Senior Engineering Manager, Tech Lead, Solution Architect, and Lead developer at companies such as WealthSimple, Loblaw Digital, Rangle.io, and IBM Canada. I have architected and scaled many web and mobile apps for clients using React, GraphQL, React Native and Next.js. You may know some of them: Tim Hortons, Burger King, Popeyes, Borrowell, WealthSimple, Moleskine and more.

I also enjoy teaching and public speaking, so I created a course on Next.js and love giving conference talks worldwide! You can check it out here: https://bit.ly/3nRIsbi

As a senior leader, I have grown a lot of folks in my career, and my mission is to help mentor folks in all stages of their career. I also believe that no question is a wrong question, so please don't hesitate to reach out.

I genuinely enjoy mentoring, and it is a 2-way street as I'm sure I'll be learning lots from you too!

If you are interested in front-end development, leadership, or career development or want to know what I'm up to, then check out my newsletter here: https://www.kulkarniankita.com/newsletter

To get you started as an engineering leader or if you are an aspiring engineering leader, here is a FREE 1-week course I've created. This course will show you how to lead a team & succeed as you transition into an Engineering Manager and take control of your first 90 days.

I'm friendly and love meeting new folks. Come to say hi! :)

As a junior developer who has been feeling far behind in their career and looking to move up, Ankita has given me the sense of confidence and hope that I would've never expected given the number of failures and rejections I've faced throughout my journey so far. Through my time with her, she has helped define my career goals more clearly and given practical steps to take in order to reach where I ultimately want to be. If you are looking for a leader who is there to help support you in your career, I would highly recommend Ankita!

Ankita has continually gone above and beyond to make sure that I'm being supported and have the help that I need when I need it. It's only been a few weeks, but I already feel more confident in my work in ways that I never did previously.
