About this Episode

Steve Caldwell is the VP of Data, Infrastructure, and Security at Springbuk where he leads a fast-growing team that has been hiring like crazy over the past year. Steve has become a widely-respected software leader who is able to grow and manage highly effective development teams. What often gets left out of that conversation, however, is the frequency with which those lessons are learned through trial and error.

In our conversation, Steve opens up about the lessons he’s learned about effective hiring and management, including lessons he learned the hard way. We talked about the hidden expenses of hiring, and ways that your scale-up can hire more effectively when you’re growing quickly.
