I've worked at Google, Facebook. and Databricks building teams and products in the AI/ML, Search and Recommendation, leading/managing anywhere from 2 to 200 person teams. At the same time, I have a very active life outside work, so I'm a strong advocate for work-life harmony.

I love mentoring and guiding engineers, PMs, TPMs, data scientists, etc. My strength is in leadership coaching and mentoring, solving difficult organizational and inter-personal situations, interviewing for coding, ML design and, people skills, and bringing clarity to foundational theories of AL/ML and Statistics.

I've mentored 100+ and have encountered a sizable variety of situations and circumstances. At the same time, there's so much I don't know. What I do have to offer is an attentive pair of ears, empathy, and an environment for collective brainstorming.

Note: If you are looking for someone to teach you machine learning, give you regular tutoring and hands-on exercises, I am not the right person; I don't have time to prepare hands-on exercises and such.

Ritendra is awesome—he gets me. He spots where I struggle, and he’s always ready with a story from his own life that somehow perfectly fits the situation. Super knowledgeable but down-to-earth, he's been my go-to for real talk and smart advice. I’m glad I chose him as my mentor.
