About

I write The Pragmatic Engineer Newsletter - the #1 newsletter for engineering managers and senior engineers on Substack. I'm also an advisor at mobile.dev where we are building the new standard for mobile development.

You can see what I'm up to on my now page and here are details how to connect with me.

I spent 4 years at Uber, in Amsterdam, heading up mobile, web and backend teams. I built large distributed systems, mobile apps and other things at scale. At Uber, I've shipped a part of the current payments system - the one that grew to processing around $65B/year in 60+ countries by 2019. It was fun and a bit crazy at times.

Prior to Uber worked at Skyscanner and Skype. At Skype/Microsoft, I worked on Skype for XBox One and Skype for Web. Honorable mentions for building trading software at J.P. Morgan and shipping a few apps for Windows Phone.

Here's how you can connect with me.

I do not accept guest posts, or sponsored content in any form. I don't respond to requests like this sent my way.

I don't accept books or products to review as gifts, or affiliate pitches. I do welcome book recommendations though. If you either wrote, or know of a book related to software engineering/engineering management and you think it's good, you can send it to me. If I like it, I'll buy it and might review it, assuming I have the time.
