Mark Mullan
We worked together  •  Embedded Systems Recruiter, Aerotek. Previously Technical Account Executive – HCM, Oracle. University of California, Berkeley grad.
Kiranbir was one of the most intelligent and driven Firmware Architects/Engineers I've worked with, which became clear even in the first 10- ... 15 minutes we began talking. I've yet to work with someone who so clearly communicates their long term career goals and interests, while also painting the picture of where they've come from. I see Kiranbir being a master of both the nontechnical and technical aspects of being an entrepreneur, and know that working alongside him would be an absolute privilege.
