HootsuiteJanuary 2020 - Présent

Leading the front-end platform team in Hootsuite. We build reusable React components, APIs, productivity tools, and lead the charge to improving our architecture and engineering culture for all front-end teams split across 4 timezones.

HootsuiteOctober 2017 - December 2019

I work in the Bucharest team that owns Hootsuite's Analytics product line.

My responsibilities extend pretty broadly. I manage two squads composed in total of 11 software engineers, specialized in back-end, test automation, and front-end development. I mentor my team members through regular 1-1 sessions and look for growth opportunities that align with their passions and career goals. I maintain communication, liaise, and negotiate solutions and delivery timelines on behalf of my teams with Product Management and Design. I frequently coordinate with teams distributed globally in order to ensure prompt resolution of dependencies. I champion the successes of my teams through personal advocacy, foster a culture based on high engineering standards, team responsibility for failures and successes, constant learning, and debates as a way to reach the best possible outcomes.

I also play an active role in defining our product's technical vision and roadmap on the front-end side. I proposed and supported multiple, sometimes multi-year long initiatives such as moving our codebase from JavaScript to Typescript, transforming our front-end from a monolith to a monorepo, migrating to a more robust unit-testing framework, moving to an encapsulated CSS solution, or implementing a micro front-end solution that allowed globally distributed teams to contribute new features inside of Hootsuite Analytics without coordination and without losing quality.
