Nathaniel in a few words

Hello!
I am a seasoned product manager / (technical/agile) project manager with an accomplished development and engineering background. I'm also a US Citizen with full authorization to work in France (I have a 10-year Titre de Sejour). I'm looking for a remote position. I have worked in both management and engineering roles at large corporations (e.g.: JP Morgan, and CIBC World Markets) -- and at various entrepreneurial startups (e.g.: one acquired by Facebook, (Drop.io), another acquired by Xpedior (Kinderhook Systems, Inc), among others). I have built many things on my own and in teams and have worked both as a consultant and as an employee. I have a deep understanding of management, web architectures and engineering and have even co-taught a class at UC Berkeley on web architecture.

I'm adaptable, plug and play, have a wide range of interests and skills, and am a life-long learner. I endeavor to add value wherever I can.

What I can do for you:
- Product Management
- Product Roadmapping
- Product Alignment / Product Strategy
- Project Management
- Engineering Management
- Technical Project Management
.. and More...

I studied with Nat in graduate school and cofounded Berkeley Health Informatics with him. He has a wonderful ability to seamlessly move between engineering, product, and project management roles, leaning on his years of experience with all three. I would highly recommend him for any strategic software development project that requires experienced leadership to ensure quality and timely execution.
