Hi there!

My name is Sebastiano, and I'm an experienced engineering leader with a passion for helping others grow in their careers.
I'm currently a Director of Engineering at Upwork, and over the years, I've led multiple teams at companies like Pinterest, Paypal, Snap, and Spotify in domains ranging from shopping and crypto to messaging, video creation, and ads.

As a mentor, I offer guidance and support to engineering managers and engineers looking to take their skills and careers to the next level. Whether you're looking to develop your leadership skills, transition to management, or navigate the complexities of the tech industry, I'm here to help. I can provide one-on-one coaching, feedback on projects and situations, and mock interviews to help you prepare for your next role.

In addition to my work with individuals, I also advise startups at the pre-seed and seed stages. If you're building a consumer app or an HR SaaS product, I can offer insights on product strategy, user acquisition, team building, and more.

If you're looking for a mentor who has been there and done that, I'd love to hear from you. Let's work together to help you achieve your goals and reach your full potential.
