Growing Leaders

Why New Method?

Hi! I'm Scott.

In my 13-year engineering career I've held leadership roles from team lead to CTO and have run teams from 6 to over 60. I've helped companies like Venmo, Groupon, Braintree, and others adapt to the challenges of running a high-growth, high-impact engineering team.

I only work with technical teams and I only offer help when I've faced similar challenges. Building and leading a high-growth, high-functioning engineering team is a challenge unlike any other – you need a partner who has seen that firsthand.

Some of what I offer

Interviewing

I can help teams of all sizes build an interview process that identifies candidates who aren't just great but great for your company. This can include everything from interview design to workshops and even onboarding.

Management Coaching

Whether you're taking your first steps into management or are running an organization of hundreds, I can help level up your leadership. I use a goal-based intentful engagement to help you identify and realize your goals.

Technology Assessment

Considering a major new initiative like a move to the cloud, GDPR compliance, or a new product line? I've lead complicated, multi-team, and multi-year projects and can help you mitigate the risks of these plans.

Onboarding

Scaling your hiring means nothing if you can't effectively train and onboard new hires. I can help you develop your engineering onboarding and orientation processes to maximize your return on investment.

Management Workshops

These small group workshops teach the fundamentals of engineering management. Learn the key tools of management and pratice them in a group setting. Available in both private and semi-private settings.

Career Development

Once you grow beyond the early stages of a team, you'll need clear career paths and tools to benchmark engineers against those paths. I can help you develop a framework that is clear while also authentic to your company.

How I Work

I believe in transparent, no-risk partnerships that are built on working together first and figuring out the financials once you're satisfied.

Coffee

We meet up for a brief conversation about your challenges, my process, and any questions you might have.

Assessment

Next, we spend a couple of hours on a deeper assessment on your challenges and we devise a strategy for solving them. This is completely, 100% free so that you try before you buy.

Engagement

If you like what you see, we proceed with an engagement one week at a time. If at any point you no longer need my services, simply let me know before the next week.
