Hi there! My name's Mike Rocha, I'm an experienced product and technology professional based out of Toronto, Canada. I've spent the last 15 years of my career in various product management and technology leadership roles, from small startups to enterprise clients and everything in between. I've coached both technical and non-technical startup founders in finding product-market fit, building and prioritizing a product roadmap, and picking the right technology stack and strategy for both MVP and growth planning. On the technical side, I've worked my way up from junior developer to CTO, and I've helped several of my colleagues and direct reports over the years plan their career trajectory and coach them on how to stand out in technical interviews.
Reach out to me if:
- You're starting a new business and need some help establishing a technology strategy and picking the right stack
- You're an experienced hands-on developer that is ready to branch into product management, team leadership or architecture
- You're looking for a new job in technology and want to know what to expect in a technical interview and how you can stand out
