One-off sessions are a great option if you’re looking for specific advice on a certain topic.
If you're looking for a mentor, and you're just not sure about how this all works – this one is for you. In a casual, informal introductory call, a mentor will introduce themselves, show you around the platform, explain how our mentorships work, and explain …
For special cases in which a coaching call is needed TODAY, and no space is available on my calendar.
I started my engineering career in 2013 at Upstart, building it from 4 engineers to 400. I’ve contributed, led, and managed Product, Data, and Platform Engineering teams. I’ve created and executed an org-wide internship program and coached numerous engineers 1:1, from fresh boot camp grads to industry veterans.
I help engineers communicate effectively, regardless of their level. We can work together to:
- Protect your job, or get you to the next level
- Flourish under a stubborn, opaque, or selfish manager
- Build prestige within your company
- Rally other teams around your designs
It's easy to find a coworker or instructor to help you write the code, but often our challenges stem from people, not technology. A good manager can help, but most managers are juggling hundreds of balls and can't spend that much time on one engineer. I've been there, and I can help you push through it.
Together we will alter how your peers and leads perceive you, amplifying your impact and advancing your career. Schedule an Introductory Call today!

Simon is an amazing mentor! I was looking to get help on some of my softer skills, including communication and management. He was very empathetic, and did a great job on challenging my underlying assumptions in a constructive way. I definitely feel like I have a better set of tools to more clearly communicate in my day to day. He gave me clear, actionable advise, rather than vague, nebulous feedback. Would definitely recommend.

Simon had excellent insights for me! I really appreciate the time we spent determining my next steps. I am happy to say that his guidance has been worthwhile; I am flourishing in my graduate program and working on exciting projects.
Writing about the stuff I like to talk about. Mostly the non-technical parts of software engineering. Sometimes other things, probably. …
How to catch the harmful lies of your inner monologue and find a better path forward
Rejection is painful in any context, but you can emerge from it stronger than you were before
We will send you a quick email if Simon has new open spots for mentorship, and only in that case!
