HOW WE WORK TOGETHER

FULL TIME

I am currently available for full-time engagements specific to Director or higher-level engagements. While I thrive within leadership and strategic roles, I also firmly believe in direct participation of tactical work specific to Sr. Product Manager and related positions.

INTERIM DIRECTOR

Interim Director engagements allow us to build the MVP-equivalent of a full stack team. In these types of roles, I take on the full responsibilities and time commitments of a full-time role, but within a fixed length of time.

CONSULTANT

Tactical in nature, consulting engagements are meant to execute on specific visions. Those visions can range from research and user requirements gathering to specific strategy development.

ALLISON - CEO

Nikhil is a proactive and engaged team member, focusing on actual, real-world metrics within our growth and outreach strategy. I appreciated his attention to detail and measuring everything, while not losing sight of the fact that some growth and marketing strategies require lateral approaches. He is organized, able to manage up, down, and across teams, and absolutely drives towards results. This was immensely helpful with Filament during our high-growth stage. He's also an excellent communicator in both copy and human interaction.

STEVE - CEO

Nikhil is a unique talent who combines market vision with a deep understanding of customer experience - and what it takes to deliver both. I'm fortunate to have brought on Nikhil to lead product strategy for our solar marketing business. He rapidly accelerated our growth by getting up to speed in record time on our initiative, taking over operations, and laying out a roadmap that delivered on both our short-term and long-term goals. Most importantly, Nikhil makes going to work every day more fun with his humor and passion. I hope to work with him again soon.
