He deliberately chose opportunities that would widen his exposure to different challenges, both technically and organizationally, by working at Plusmo, LinkedIn, Uber, Amazon and Scale AI. He started his career writing a web browser on feature phones (yes, those Nokia bricks) and his most recent role is leading infrastructure and data teams at Scale AI, which powers datasets for some of most complicated AI problems we have today. He experienced firsthand how a 50 person startup, a 1,000 person unicorn and a 500,000 person industrial giant can innovate and fail.
