About Shaan

I'm currently employed as a software engineer at a fast growing startup in New York City. In a previous life, I was an investment banker working on wall street. I've started my own company before and learned many lessons the hard way. Now, I want to take another stab at entrepreneurship and utilize the lessons I've learned from a failed venture as well as working at a wildly successful one.

I'm looking to join someone that has the following qualities:
- Is an independent thinker. Doesn't just read TechCrunch and believe that's all you need to know to build a business.
- Questions everything.
- Believes in building a sustainable and profitable business, and not just a feature.
- Thinks lean
- Understands product development
- Understands business fundamentals, market analysis, and customer development
