hi. i’m gian 🏴‍☠️

$ ./describe.sh

I’m currently building things at Replit -- these days mostly contributing to our AI research team, after having led our growth engineering efforts between 2022 and 2023.

Before that, I founded and led Uniwhere, an app that supports college students make better decision for their career. We raised venture money, and sold the company after growing it to over 30% of the Italian student population.

I have a strong quant (AI/ML) background, and a 15-year software development experience ranging from full stack to native mobile.

I write about things that pick my interest. If you’re not sure where to start, try Why Ed-tech Startups Don't Scale, What's the Future of IDEs?, or How to Learn Better in the Digital Age.

I’m also publishing a private newsletter, that I send only when I feel like I have something to add to the conversation. I read every reply. You can join it here:
