Osman (Ozzie) Osman

Hi! I’m Osman, most people call me Ozzie (or Oz or O). I build products and teams that build products (and occasionally, teams that build teams that build products).


I’ve been building software for 30 years—I started with Quick Basic when I was 10.

I’ve started (or helped start) multiple software/product companies, two of which have been acquired.

I invest or advise startups when I find the founders or the product engaging and care about its mission and impact.

I’ve written a book on hiring software engineers (the Holloway Guide to Technical Recruiting and Hiring).

I grew up in Cairo, Egypt but have spent big chunks of my life in Boston, MA and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Son of Ahmed and Hala, husband to Dina, father to Ahmed and Aziz.
