My name is Marc.
I am a freelance Scrum Master, PM, and Fractional CTO helping tech startups meet app goals and #ShipIt to production.
I believe the stakeholder and software need an advocate in the SDLC. Maintaining focus on the shared goal, fairness in estimation and stories, and team happiness is the energy I deliver to projects. I have a track record of proven success in Scrum/Agile, Project Management, and Engineering to add fresh perspectives and success to your technology endeavor.
I have experience across over 20 languages, all cloud providers, both front and back end (management and coding). Still, I prefer and focus on the Python ecosystem, where I have over a decade of real-world expertise.
Small teams, start-ups, and rising media all deserve the same expertise. My services range from fCTO (fractional CTO) to Project and Product Manager (PSPO) and Scrum Master (PSM). Your competition will have people like me in droves.
"Most startups don't need a full-time CTO to handle strategy." --Tony Karrer
The Fractional CTO
I help early-stage start-ups, and small teams get the most out of software.
My specialty is Python; my preference is open-source technology.
For the past 20 years, my life has been web and software. The actual story goes back further.
My career has focused on project management, agile methodologies, development (open-source technology), and leadership roles, including CTO.
I support start-ups and small teams with energy, pragmatism, and a desire to have always fun.
Experience as developer and manager for operations, cloud, SRE, DevOps, IAC, code (a lot of Python), databases, data science, design, UI/UX, and Linux!
Python, please, but not necessary
Most of my technical and professional experience is focused on the Python programming language. This includes Django (the second most significant investment in software knowledge), DRF, Wagtail DjangoCMS, and much more.
My professional experience is still quite broad, having delivered PHP, Ruby, .Net, C#, AWS, Azure, GCP, JS, C, and any other language necessary to get the job done.
Currently, I do not code for money. I work in Python and C languages building embedded devices and custom applications. My decades of professional development experience and ongoing software projects provide a rare technical foundation to allow your team and company to excel.
