Head of Engineering and Product

"Our multi-million dollar ARR company was making a critical decision regarding our tech foundation which is hard to change later. Kartick's insights [from his Youtube videos] helped convince the CTO and Directors, de-risked the decision, and gave us increased confidence to go ahead, knowing that it will result in easier hiring, faster time to market and higher reliability of our product."

Software Engineer

"Kartick was able to take the role of a consultant and mentor immediately. He practically guided me by hand to write industry-level API documentation.

Our SDK was old and had repeated, bug-ridden logic that took twice as much time to work with. Kartick helped us do multiple runs of refactoring and rewriting. It made the code less prone to bugs and crashes and onboarding new developers into the code base less time consuming.

Reducing mobile network chattiness and decreasing DB query time in our mobile app were strategic and well planned improvements by him that made the UI smoother, run faster and overall make the user experience better.


When I was stuck, I’d ask Kartick or refer to his Youtube videos, and I was able to make progress again."

Let's talk about what I can do for your startup

Goal-based engagement

Is your startup not on track to achieve your next milestone? Are you unsure what to do to get back on track?

Wouldn't it be great if you could get a trusted expert to guide you throughout your journey, help you make critical decisions right, and give you visibility into the consequences of decisions before you make them, so that you can execute with confidence?

Work with me, and I’ll guide you to success.

I'd like to offer you a couple of pricing options:

Option 1: Guaranteed results: I’ll understand your goals, and commit to delivering them. In the unlikely event I fail to deliver, I’ll do whatever it takes to make things right, including redoing the work at no extra cost, giving you a partial refund, or even a full refund, whichever I feel is the appropriate resolution.

  • The fee will be $175/hour, subject to a minimum of $4K per month.

  • The bill fluctuates month to month. In the past I’ve billed as much as $20K in a single month.

  • I’ll inform you every $4K — 4, 8, 12, etc — to avoid bill shock.

  • A typical engagement costs $100K. I suggest you budget $100K to get started, and I’ll let you know if this changes as the work proceeds.

Option 2: Name your own price. It could be as low as $4k. We’ll divide it by the hourly rate of $275, and you’ll get a certain number of hours. I’ll use those hours to further the agreed-upon goals. When the hours are over, if work still remains, you can choose to repeat this process by naming another price for the next iteration, or switch to option 1.
