In the last seven years I have been responsible for shipping ten new products at multiple companies that generated millions of dollars of revenue and had global scale.

° products I wrote myself 100% from scratch
° teams I hired and managed to write them
° deeply troubled products that were full of technical debt when I inherited them and fixed them
