Hi there 👋🏻 My name is Rok!

Working effectively in a software company is challenging! There are often many moving parts, many different priorities coming from various parts of the company, and many approaches to choose from. After having spent 12+ years in top-tier software companies, I’ve experienced and learned a lot. Now I'm passionate about passing this knowledge on to you!

A bit about me:

I obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Cambridge. After my studies, I worked at various renowned companies, ultimately founding my own AI-focused company. My experience includes roles in software development (software engineer, tech lead, principal engineer), management (project manager, product manager, engineering manager), strategy (strategy consultant, pricing consultant, head of patents), and talent assessment (tech, behavioral and final interviewer).

Both during my Ph.D. and later as a manager, one of the most rewarding experiences was mentoring others. My passion for mentorship stems from the guidance I received early in my career, which helped me navigate challenges and make informed decisions. I am now eager to support others in their journey and contribute to their success, drawing from my own experiences and learnings.

I've helped numerous professionals advance their careers and overcome obstacles in the software industry. I truly believe that working with a mentor is the fastest way to speed up your learning and career development!

As a mentor, I can help you:

- Handle software projects of any size
- Prioritize work effectively
- Get the most out of your team
- Tackle complex cross-team/department situations
- Set responsibilities for an effective company structure
- Ace behavioral and final interviews
- Negotiate a higher salary for your next job

As a mentee, you can expect personalized support, tailored to your specific goals and challenges. I'll be there to guide you every step of the way, and you can reach out to me at any time. We'll have regular check-ins and work together to create a customized development plan.

Send me a message, and let's use the free trial period to get to know each other and ensure that we are the right fit for each other.
