Hello there! 👋 I'm a seasoned software engineer with a passion for mentoring and helping other engineers grow.
My specialty is helping mid-career engineers overcome career stagnation and fire up their careers. Whether you're seeking to 1) advance your career, 2) get a new job, 3) expand your technical skills, or 4) just get *unstuck*, you don’t have to do it alone.
Short on time? Not sure where to start? Lack a formal CS background?
Not a problem. I don’t use a one-size-fits-all approach. My mentorships are personalized to your situation, experience and resources, be it time or energy. All you need is a hunger for growth and a willingness to put in the work.
Book a session today to get started!

I spent 9 years at Amazon as a Senior Software Engineer. During this time, I had the opportunity to learn from the best engineers on projects that include Amazon Marketplace, Amazon Alexa, and Amazon Logistics. My specialty was building scalable backend systems using AWS.
I’m also a former Amazon Bar Raiser with over 300 interviews under my belt. I helped hire dozens of SDEs, SDMs and TPMs to grow our teams.
I recently completed my coaching certification and am now a full-time career coach mentoring software engineers in building successful and fulfilling careers.

5 out of 5 stars
Prior to working with Roman I had a vague understading of what I would like my career to look like. Roman not only helped me clarify this path, he also empowered me with helpful tools that I am using on a daily basis. What distinguishes Roman's approach is his holistic methodology. He doesn’t just focus on the career itself, but also considers how personal strengths, lifestyle, and individual goals intertwine with professional aspirations. His kindness and understanding create a comfortable and supportive environment, enhancing the effectiveness of our sessions. During our meetings, I consistently felt heard and valued. Roman's ability to actively listen and provide tailored advice is exceptional. He did not offer generic solutions, instead, he delved into understanding my unique situation, offering insights that are both practical and transformative. I cannot emphasize enough how highly I recommend working with Roman. His impact goes beyond mere career coaching, it's about fostering personal and professional growth in a holistic way. For anyone looking to gain clarity, direction, and empowerment in their career, Roman is undoubtedly an excellent choice.

Before working with Roman, I wanted to transition to a role that aligned better with my values and professional goals. I lacked confidence in my technical skills and struggled to juggle work responsibilities with interview prep. Brute forcing my way through the long hours eroded my happiness, well-being and relationships. Roman helped me improve my time-management and prioritization skills, creating more space for interview prep. He guided me in making the shift from fearing layoffs to feeling empowered - rebuilding my confidence and creating better relationships in the process. Within two months, I secured a better role at a new company. My biggest breakthrough was realizing how life outside work powerfully impacts my career confidence, productivity, and success. Roman helped me build a plan for a well-rounded life with new hobbies and social activities. My life has more meaning now, which improved my outlook and career focus. Roman consistently delivered insights that addressed the heart of my challenges, not just superficial symptoms. He shifted my outlook from dwelling on problems to actively seeking upside potential. I highly recommend Roman as a coach to those seeking career success coupled with a fulfilling life.
We will send you a quick email if Roman has new open spots for mentorship, and only in that case!
