If you want to kickstart your technology career, improve your growth trajectory, get the promotion you know you deserve, and understand what is key to unlock achieving your professional goals, I'd love to help!

Every individual is different and may have different needs to achieve their goals - I will listen to your current situation and, based on where you want to be in the future, I'll suggest habits and behaviours that will enable you to close the gaps you may have and become the professional you want to be.

I started my career as a Software Engineer (specialised in backend) around 15 years ago, and I've covered different roles in different organisations (both startups and big companies), progressing into technology leadership. I'm currently an Engineering Director at Wise, a public cross-border payments company, and before that I have been CTO at Moneyfarm, a series D Pan-European Fintech company. I am passionate about how practices like DevOps, Agile and Continuous Delivery help teams to become high performing and individuals to grow.

I particularly enjoy coaching and mentoring technology professionals at various stages in their journey (from Junior Software Engineers to Engineering Managers/Directors), helping them to build the skillset necessary to improve their current and future careers, and to increase the impact they can have in their organisations.

Emanuele's guidance has been key for me to achieve my career goal as an engineering manager . Thanks to his direction and the resources that he shared, I was able to build the right knowledge and have the confidence to apply for my current role. His wide experience working in multiple companies, multiple teams, and in different roles allowed him to have a unique and pragmatic perspective on what it means to build tech teams and products. I would recommend him to anybody looking for mentorship
