About Me

Hi, my name is Marcelo Wiermann, I’m an engineer who got lost in the management department for the last 15+ years. I’ve served tech companies across three continents, ranging from my own garage startup to Big Tech. I’m deeply passionate about tech and the people who make it happen.

I’ve found myself giving the same advice over and over to the folks I help and mentor, so I started this to help reach even more people. I hope you enjoy it! 😎
