Three Ways Consulting

Technology Consulting & Advisory

How can I help you?

  • Consulting/Fractional CTO - to support one or more teams and the company leadership over a period of time. This works well if you don't have the resources or time to hire a full time CTO right away.
  • Technical Architect - to focus on a specific technical problem (some examples are product architecture, information security problems, cloud cost, microservices, etc.). This works well if you have a team but need someone experienced to work with them to solve tough technology business problems.
  • DevOps Coach - a special type of engagement to coach engineering teams and leadership on architecture, engineering practices and culture. This works well to help a team struggling with moving fast and shipping high quality products.
  • Technical Advisor - to support the leadership with a technical strategy. This is a low touch longer term engagement. This works well for companies that need a domain or technical expert for advise on how to deal with specific technology or organisational problems.

What I don't do:

  • Hands-on software development - I am a developer with fluency in multiple technology stacks. I can write software actively but I can add a lot more value to your organisation in other capacities. I can help your teams build things from time to time by helping them architect and write code if necessary, but I would not like to be a full-time developer building software for you.
  • Staffing - I am not a contractor who can provide engineers on demand. That’s not something I do or intend to do. However, if we are working together, I can try my best to make introductions with people who might be looking for opportunities or recruiters in my network who do that kind of work.

About Me

Vaidik Kapoor I have a decade of experience working as an engineer, manager and a technology leader. Most recently, I worked as VP Engineering (DevOps, Platform Engineering & Security) at Blinkit (formerly Grofers). Prior to that, I worked for Wingify. Read more about me here.

I have mostly worked with startups and scale ups (growth-stage) companies. While I can work with companies at any scale, I am more effective in understanding and helping startups scale their product and engineering.

The value I can add to your organisation is my experience in building products and teams from Zero-to-One or One-to-Ten. I can work with you to provide actionable solutions to the challenges your teams are facing in product development, platform engineering, engineering practices and ways-of-working, information security, compliance and scaling technology teams.

Areas of Expertise

  • Leadership - technology strategy, technical debt prioritisation, compliance, goal setting (OKRs), mentorship, vendor management, career development
  • Skills - agile, DevOps, SRE, CI/CD, scalability, web development, microservices, cloud engineering, cloud cost optimisation, platform engineering, cloud-native development
  • Technologies - I have experience with modern development stacks with the most experience with Python, Javascript and cloud-native technologies. I am agnostic to tech stacks and can pick up things quickly if need be.

How can we work together?

Client engagements start with a call! Pick a time below to talk. I usually suggest we set up an initial free workshop with leadership to discuss the challenges the team is facing and what success would look like. We'll want to identify where I could add the most value and agree on expectations.
