These are challenging times, especially for engineering leaders. How do you “engineer” the trust in a distributed team that would occur normally in a localized workforce? Today’s guest is here to show you how. Jeremy Wight is the VP of Product and Engineering at Base. Base raised $2.6M in 2019 to build the first software platform that’s exclusively for Executive Assistants. Jeremy has been building a remote team for the past two years, and he’s collected some amazing insights about building a fully distributed engineering team. In this episode, we talk about the best-practices he’s used to keep his remote team rowing in the same direction and shipping product that matters.
Listen in to hear the full conversation.
- High-functioning remote teams focus on moving KPIs instead of shipping features.
- Little “p” product ownership breeds more autonomous remote workers.
- Serendipity breeds trust, but serendipity is hard on remote teams.
- How you win is putting the fire out in 30 seconds or less.
- If we aren't building the right things, it doesn't matter how much we work.
