About this Episode

Usually, we feature interviews with engineering leaders who have experienced high-growth. For the next few weeks, we're changing things up a bit. Our team has talked to hundreds of engineering, HR, and recruiting leaders in the past year. As a result, we’ve heard a lot of the same questions over and over again. We wanted to pose those questions to our guests and provide insights from across the country.

In this series, we sit down with engineering leaders from large companies like Stripe, AngelList, and Drift. We also talk to smaller companies that are growing fast with (and without) venture funding. Here are some of the key questions we’ll answer over the next few weeks:

  • What hiring and management practices break on our team after a major round of funding?
  • How can we tell if a recruiting source is actually bringing in the wrong candidates?
  • What tricks do hiring managers use to uncover developers that other hiring managers may miss?
  • How can we speed up our hiring process without sacrificing quality?
  • What do top hiring managers look for in an A+ technical screening process?
