About this Episode

Will Larson is the author of my new favorite engineering management book, An Elegant Puzzle: Systems of Engineering Management, and this week, we’re answering listener questions about real-life situations with him.

Will has been an engineering leader and software engineer at technology companies of many shapes and sizes including Digg, Uber, and Stripe. He currently leads foundation engineering at Stripe, where he is responsible for the infrastructure and platform organization. If you haven’t heard of Stripe, they’re a huge player in the online payment space, building the economic infrastructure for the internet. They’ve raised over $700M to date and show no signs of slowing their growth any time soon.
