Vivian Cromwell
We worked together  •  Engineering PM, Google Cloud Platform, Google. Previously Head of Chrome Developer Relations, Google.com.
Daniel is a strong technical leader who knows how to build an effective team of passionate engineers. I have worked with him when he was s ... till at NPR then later through various interactions with NetFlix. Daniel and I have exchanged the various lessons and experience we have had when building up teams, he is a great listener, a good mentor and a good friend.

Vivian Cromwell
We worked together  •  Engineering PM, Google Cloud Platform, Google. Previously Head of Chrome Developer Relations, Google.com.
Vivian has many strengths, but among the strongest is her ability to build a team. While at Google, she recruited and hired some of the bes ... t engineering talent. A-class engineers will not follow unless the vision is inspiring and worthwhile. Inspiring such talent requires excellent leadership skills, which Vivian also has. In a range of projects that she and I had worked on (she was at Google and I collaborated with her while I was at NPR and then Netflix), she always showed exceptional initiative in trying to kick-start new and creative ideas. And if one path failed, she would find another and pursue that one to completion.
