As a non-technical founder, I first connected with Andre around my need to sift through and understand all of the information coming to me from my developers. Andre quickly gave me an initial filter for this information by challenging me to tie each piece of information to a measurable business need. From there, during our meetings Andre helps me to not only understand the information, but also to prioritize the decisions that I have to make. Read More

Through these conversations, Andre has given me more of my most precious resource as a founder - time. Each of the projects that my development team undertakes now is better scoped from the beginning to reduce unnecessary or low-impact development work. Additionally, I have been able to avoid several potential development “rabbit holes” that would have had a negligible impact on the business, even if they had been successfully launched. Because of this, I now also have more “head space” and profits to focus on continuing to grow the company.

If you are a non-technical founder, Andre’s perspective from his experience across multiple companies has provided me with the skill and confidence to lead my development team more successfully. Read Less

Working with André is refreshingly easy and extremely valuable to anyone with too many great ideas needing developed. Having plenty of vision was not our issue; how to make that a reality from a technical standpoint without incurring loads of debt (financial and technical) was. That’s where André really came through for us! His ability to ask the right questions regarding our vision followed by his recommendations (which made total sense) really put us at ease and I would highly recommend you start here before jumping into development.

Andre is the best type of Full Stack engineer and one of the most capable individuals I have ever met. He excels at asking the right questions to get at the heart of the development need. Excellent under pressure. Capable of leading and supporting others while over-delivering on his own tasks. Highly experienced, Team-focused and solution-oriented. Greatly recommend for any consultation and development needs.

I've had the opportunity to work with Andre over the last several years. He's been instrumental in transforming my idea into a business. Andre takes the time to understand the problem you're trying to solve, iterate and create value-added software. I would recommend Andre to anybody serious about building a software-based business.
