They're my friends  •  Previously Architect, MediaCrossing Inc.. Previously Director of Realtime Engineering, Boston Technologies Inc.
Leo has built up many years of successful startup experience. I was really impressed with his ability to pick up a wide range of technologi ... es in order to achieve success. In my opinion, entrepreneurs can learn a lot from his thought process and approach to attacking problems.
Max Lahey
We worked together  •  Software Engineer, Stripe. Previously Senior Software Developer, ProctorCam, Inc.
I had the pleasure of working with Leo for 2 years. I attribute much of my personal success to his mentorship, specifically around software ... development, architecture, and product design. Through thorough and honest feedback, he helped me develop my engineering skills and business savvy an immeasurable amount. Leo has the uncanny ability to see looming issues from months away and address them before they turn into problems. Whether it was addressing technical debt, anticipating a client’s needs before they did, or carefully adding the appropriate amount of process to the dev team, Leo’s foresight kept our team shipping solid software at a fast clip despite various challenges that came up. This relates a lot to one of the non-technical skills of Leo’s that I appreciated most: ruthless prioritization. Frequently, he would ask me “does this need to be done? does this need to be done by you? does this need to be done by you right now?” I continue to use that mantra today, since all the hard work in the world doesn’t mean much if it is misplaced. Leo has a ton of confidence in what he says, and after spending the time that I did working with him, I do too.

Leo is a wealth of knowledge and knows how to scale a business. Our business has blossomed since his arrival. He thinks big and doesn't get ... stuck in the here and now but rather stays focused on where we need to be.

He's been through it before having run a few companies. He's open minded, and an excellent hands on software architect.

Leo is a top-notch engineering leader who is not worried about getting his fingers wet! Leo knows well how to make the trade offs between an ... elegant product design and just-enough hacking to get job done well -- and steer his team in that direction.
