About

I designed and built most of HubSpot's observability platform, and have handled realtime (sub-15s latency) streams of millions of datapoints per minute, and terabytes per day. I've improved Amazon's open source balancing algorithm for Kinesis to support downtime-free rebalancing over thousands of concurrent shards. I wrote the first endorsed Java client for Slack (see https://github.com/HubSpot/slack-client), and served on the customer advisory board for Splunk's monitoring solution for years.

As a skilled technologist with a decade of experience building high performance software and teams in big tech at a 1B+ unicorn, I can help you break into tech, or take it to the next level. As someone who has been a hiring manager, and conducted countless interviews for roles from entry level to director, I can help you prep for that next try. As someone who has successfully climbed from an entry role to the staff level, I can help coach you on how to get there yourself.

Most of my success has come from a combination of learning from mistakes, and luck. Luck, you can't control. But you CAN control how you respond when you invariably get things wrong, and I believe the difference between those that go far and those that plateau is whether they are willing to embrace the discomfort, and do the hard work of self-improvement.

If you are willing to put yourself out there, listen openly to the feedback you receive, and iterate on yourself as if you were the product, you can go so far. If that's what you'd like to do, I'd love to help you do it more efficiently than I have, and perhaps avoid the specific bumps and hurdles I hit.

Working with Elias has been a transformational experience. I came to him as someone with little to no knowledge of programming or software engineering experience. From our first engagement (before registering with mentorcruise) to now - Elias has provided me professional guidance in how best to position myself for a career change into software engineering and technical guidance on specific implementation details of different applications I'm working on. I can confidently say that I would not be on this path if I had not approached Elias about my situation. He is empathetic, knowledgeable, and pragmatic. He asks surgically precise questions that can cut right through all of the emotional noise and stress that comes with investing in a career change, bringing a level of clear thinking that has been so critical in shoring up my own sense of decisiveness and confidence. I think anyone looking to grow as a software engineer or looking to become one as I am stands to learn a lot from Elias - if not from his robust technical expertise then at least by adopting his way of thinking.
