He has been one for about 10 years now, and for the last four he has been working exclusively remotely.

Being a part of Netguru is an amazing adventure. I joined the company as very fresh junior PM, without experience in taking care of my own projects or mentoring anyone. The company was around 80 people and 5 PMs. After 4 years of being here, not only has the company reached 600 employees (with close to 50 PMs on board!), but also I feel that I grew at least at the same pace as the organization!
