About this Episode

Charity Majors is the CTO at Honeycomb, a startup that builds observability for distributed systems.

Occasionally, we have a conversation that’s so much fun, we need to break it into two episodes. This is one of those weeks. We recently sat down with Charity, and the result is one of the most thoughtful discussions we’ve had on our show to-date.

Charity’s team is on a mission to make monitoring less cumbersome so that being on-call can suck less.

In this episode, we talk about when pain and discomfort is okay in your professional life (and when it’s not). We also talk about hiring practices and why more people should quit their job.
