Hi, I'm Rick! With over 10 years as a Software Engineer at FAANG companies and startups, I specialize in Backend Distributed Systems and have a broad skill set in various technologies. I've also founded two startups. In the past, I mentored many engineers/non-engineers through work, volunteering, and bootcamps, focusing on career planning, learning new technologies, and interview preparation.

I prioritize quality over quantity, mentoring only two individuals at a time to ensure dedicated support. My mentorships are personalized to each mentee's goals, and I also offer one-time sessions for quick consultations.

I'm here to share my experience and support your growth.

Rick is the absolute best mentor I've ever had on Mentorcruise. I've been a software engineering/CS mentee for a long time (2+ years) and used several platforms for mentorship: Preply, TakeLessons, etc. in addition to this one, but he is the best engineer I've ever had the pleasure to learn from. He has given great insight and effective feedback as to how I could clear Big Tech Interviews and has been extremely supportive the entire time. Rick truly cares about his mentees and has irrefutable experience and skills to take their career to the next level. Rick helped me secure a SWE I role in a brutal job market and I can't thank him enough. I would even go so far to argue that *not* having Rick as a mentor (or someone like him) would be a huge missed opportunity for your development. Definitely recommend him!

Rick is by far the BEST software engineering tutor I have ever had, and I have trained under 5 different engineers. He goes above and beyond expectations and gives actionable insights as to how to improve my practical software engineering skill to rigorous production-grade industry standards. Training under Rick has taught me a more optimal way to learn as I grow in my SWE career in a variety of topics: systems design, best practice, designing and building a codebase from scratch, etc. I give him my highest commendation and have no doubt he will supercharge your learning!

Rick has been an invaluable mentor throughout our sessions. His ability to provide deep insights into my resume has significantly enhanced its impact. He meticulously identified areas for improvement and suggested actionable steps. Beyond the resume, Rick’s guidance on my career trajectory has been profoundly helpful. He has offered thoughtful, strategic advice that is tailored to my professional goals. His expertise and encouragement have been pivotal in my career development. I am truly grateful for his mentorship.

Rick was great from the get go! I booked a coding session and he had a really interesting problem and gave me great feedback at the end. Great communicator, Highly recommend.
