Hi, i'm Louie Bacaj

Welcome to my online real estate, I am an engineering leader, a software engineer, and I love startups.

A quick 10 seconds about me

I grew up in The Bronx, NYC, most of my life.

I've worked at fortune 100 companies and startups. One of those startups, Jet.com, had a successful exit.

After Walmart acquired Jet, I led multiple engineering teams for Walmart.

Currently, I am a CTO and helping co-found something new.

On here, I write about leadership, engineering, real estate, eCommerce, healthcare, growth and marketing.
