Building Great Engineering Cultures for Startups

Mar 11, 2017

12:30pm – 1:30pm CT

Building startups is hard. As a founder, engineer, lead, or manager, you not only have to build a great product, but if you don't build a great team, you will fail. We're going to look at how companies evolve from very early stage startup growth to mid stage companies and many of the management / cultural challenges faced at various inflection points in growth by building a fictional startup and watching it grow. Topics include building tech culture, recruiting, interviewing, managing employees, choosing managers, growing managers, goal setting, building values and mission, org structuring, and prioritization / planning. Come with questions!
