I grew exponentially as a leader under the direction and mentorship of Guillermo. I came to recognize my strengths, while also being challenged to grow in areas I wasn't confident.
Guillermo joined Untapped at a unique inflection point: we were shedding the technical debt of our Seed days and required a leader that not only understood the complexity of our code base, but had a vision for how we could build and actualize as we relentlessly pursued our mission. Uninterested in ego or the politics of a growing organization, Guillermo rallied the team, got to work and transformed the way we build at Untapped.
Guillermo’s insights helped me navigate the struggles of people management, guiding me towards what to focus on with my team to be an effective leader. He helped me demonstrate the business value of a people-centric approach with an emphasis on empathy, structure, and work/life balance. Guillermo’s dedication to my success was truly inspiring.
Guillermo completely redefined my definition of what a technical leader should be. He helped me become a data driven leader, with a focus on better understanding and utilizing DevOps metrics to guide decisions for the engineering team. Guillermo helps you become the best version of your professional self, and I could write a novel on the tremendous impact his guidance has had on my career trajectory.
