Nicholas Weininger

Veteran SWE manager, TLM, and leadership coach.

I spent 15 years at Google as IC, TLM, manager and manager-of-managers, leading teams of 3 to 45 engineers in both search and internal developer tools divisions, and driving infrastructure improvements that significantly improved latency, resource use, reliability and security of critical Google systems. I've also been VP of Engineering at a Series A startup where I grew a team of engineers and data scientists to solve gnarly climate-tech analysis and forecasting problems. And for the past several years, I've been an independent coach/consultant to startup CTOs, co-founders, and other technical leaders, helping them work through both team dynamics and technical design challenges.
