About

Hey there 👋! I'm a long-time SDE passionate about mentoring. I've mentored dozens of mentees (both officially and unofficially) and guided orgs of up to 100 people in growing their skills as engineers. I'm a former Amazon Bar Raiser with 300+ interviews and can help you master the interview process at Amazon and other FAANG companies.

My most popular mentorships fall in two categories:
1. Interview preparation for Amazon and other FAANG companies.
2. Technical mentorship for software engineers.

I can also tailor mentorships to your specific needs.

Interview preparation for Amazon and other FAANG companies.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Together, we'll work on:

- Understanding the key steps to passing the Amazon SDE interview (for L4, L5 and L6 engineers)
- Preparing and practicing for in-person interviews
- Focusing on the 3 pillars of interviews:

1. Understanding Amazon Leadership Principles and behavioral questions. These are the keys for success for SDEs, SDMs, TPMs and other roles
2. Technical fundamentals for nailing the coding interview.
3. The blueprint for creating robust system designs in 30 minutes.

-------------------------------------------------
Technical mentorship for software engineers
-------------------------------------------------
I can support your ongoing professional growth and career development goals. I can help you with designing greenfield projects, learning legacy systems, leveraging AWS technologies, OpEx best practices, and just general coding. I can guide you in your career choices and help you maximize your impact and visibility.

I was also an Amazon Bar Raiser - a single-threaded leader in the Amazon interview process. Moreover, I've performed over 300 interviews for various roles including SDE, SDM and TPM. I have a deep understanding of the interview process and have taught and mentored other interviewers as well as other Bar Raisers.


What mentees say

Roman is a very knowledgeable mentor who provided me with lots of insights as to how to prepare for technical, behavioural, and OOD interviews. Over the three-week period of mentorship, I was able to make meaningful progress in my interview preparation journey. Roman's advice often comes in great depth and is shaped in a way that triggers thinking (or re-thinking). I would recommend Roman to anyone who are seriously preparing for interviews in the tech industry.

The initial call with Roman was a very helpful session. This session triggered my thinking on where some of my "assumptions" might have come from and gave me a clear idea of how mentorship with him works. After the first session, some of my questions were answered, and the next steps were clear. Thanks!
