I’m Max Countryman. People first leader and indie hacker.

I’ve always had a passion for making things, and it all started with my first Lego set as a child. I would spend hours building and creating, using those small plastic blocks to bring my ideas to life. As I got older, I discovered computers and eventually turned my passion into a career in software engineering.

Over the last decade I’ve honed my skills as an engineering leader and technologist, with a particular interest in bootstrapped startups and the indie hacking space. In my current role, I get to use my creativity and technical expertise to develop and lead innovative engineering strategy that drives business growth and success.

One thing that sets me apart as a leader is my focus on people first. I believe that the key to success is building strong, collaborative teams, and I strive to create a positive and inclusive work environment where everyone can thrive. I prioritize open communication, mentorship, and continuous learning, and I’m committed to helping my team members grow and succeed both personally and professionally.

My love for building and creating doesn’t stop when I leave the office. In my free time, you can find me working on my own indie products or exploring new technologies and tools. I’m always looking for ways to push the boundaries and create meaningful and rewarding experiences.

I’m excited to see where my passion for making things takes me next, and I’m grateful for the journey that brought me to where I am today.
