Are you trying to decide if software engineering is the right path for you? Are you currently an engineering manager and want tips on how you can grow and foster a better team? Join me as I speak with Chief Operator of the Rube Goldberg machine (CTO of Kajabi), Mahesh Guruswamy, as he guides us through how he measures success in his role as CTO, his 6 tenants of conflict resolution, ways to build a learning culture, how to know if engineering management is right for you, and much more.
Mahesh has been in tech for over two decades and has held many different positions ranging from software engineer to Director of Architecture, to VP of Engineering at companies like Vanguard, Fidelity Investments, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Amazon Alexa, and Smartsheet. While in graduate school before he started his career in tech, he was a cashier at McDonald’s and through his interactions with the diverse clientele he discovered his knack for connecting and empathizing with all walks of life.
