Philip Lakin

Hello! So nice to see you here. If we haven't met yet: let's fix that ASAP and here is a bit about me: By day, I'm a Solutions Architect at Compass. By night, I'm an improviser, no code maker, and the creator of Propulsion Lab.

I love the startup world and the people in it. Recently, our community has been hit pretty hard by the economic impacts of COVID-19. Lay-offs, pay reductions, and having to do more with less resources. So, I would like to publicly offer my time in two ways:

  1. If you are currently seeking new job opportunities in the tech startup space, I'd love work with you in a one-on-one interview strategy and prep session. As a Bar Raiser at Compass and 3x startup founder, I have interviewed candidates for countless roles. There is ZERO COST for this. No strings attached and no up-sell. I myself have been a part of a mass lay-off before and know how tough it it can be, and I'd like to help where/how I can.

  2. If you are currently secure in your job, but could use help with automating parts of your daily workflow to free up time, let's hop on a call! As companies become more lean due to the current economic climate, more work is being asked of each of us than ever before. I have vast experience with automating workflows that save me hours of time every week, so I can stay focused on the bigger picture at work. The cost for this session is $45 for 45 minutes. If you are not completely satisfied, I have a 100% money-back guarantee.

All the best,
Phil
