What I am looking for


I am looking for 4 types of opportunities, ranked by preference.

For headhunters, recruiters, hr:

If you want to learn more about me, go through my projects and career journey.

Reach out to me

  1. if there is no employment / IP clause that forbids outside appointment (directorships, working with 3rd parties)
  2. with the job description and compensation package (base salary, bonus, equities/shares)

1. A career with a top-tier company

E.g. FAANG, financial institutes

I am only interested in the top companies with big technical challenges and compensation.

2. Building a business

I am working on something exciting and not looking for investors.

3. Leadership position at a startup

Leadership position: Chief/Head of data

I tried experiencing the "Head of data" role at one of the startups, but don't get it officially as things went south. I am more interested in taking control of my career by starting/building my company than joining a startup unless you are the next Google.

You can refer to the Wikipedia definition of a startup. Based on What The Hell Is A Startup Anyway, a company is no longer a startup if

  1. $50 million revenue run rate (forward 12 months)
  2. 100 or more employees
  3. Worth more than $500 million, on paper or otherwise

4. Better than the above 3

Surprise me. If you have million-dollar jobs, I am interested to hear more.
