Hey all πŸ€—

Thanks for stopping by here at MentorCruise.com. I created this community of mentors! In "real life" I work on Machine Learning-based products and features at Doist, the company behind Todoist and Twist.

I offer mentorship in a wide variety of topics. I am happy to help out if you are looking to run a marketplace, if you want to learn more about product management, running your own bootstrapped business, building side-projects or breaking into the AI/Machine Learning space.

CTO - STADS technologies
πŸ’» Personal Chat πŸ“ To-Dos πŸ† Projects & Challenges πŸ“ž 1-on-1 Calls πŸ›Ž Hands-On Support

I'm a tech founder, over the past 15 years, I wrote code as a CTO of web based applications, Most of the time used ruby on rails, so I got deep knowledge in building and scaling real products from ground up. I believe in clean code, that is easy to maintain, 100% test coverage, and most important, keeping things simple. I've been a mentor for the ITC (Israel tech challenge) and really liked it, even helped a men-tee to score a job at Google.

Hey there.

I discovered community building some 15 years ago and I have been hooked ever since. This is the core of what I've been doing since.

Along the way I've also been super interested in startups and business. I founded and boot strapped Ministry of Testing, a community focused on software testing. It's now a global community with online and offline (conferences + meetups) activities.

I stepped back from Ministry of Testing in 2019 to lead the community over at Indie Hackers.

My core skills lie within community building ...

I believe we all can contribute to creating a positive impact in the world.

Being in UX, my purpose is to understand deeply the users so the products and interfaces we create solve real problems and make people's lives better. How do we align user-centered experiences with business needs and conversion goals? We listen to real users. With the right research plan (with the right research goal, and the right combination of research methods) we're able to tap into the customers' journey, their pain points, frustrations, needs and wants.
