Alexander Grosse, TweetVP Engineering at Soundcloud
Biography: Alexander Grosse
Presentation: TweetHire "A" Teams
At SoundCloud we've found our best successes come through collaboration, not from relying on heroes. We put all our efforts into building an "A" Team rather than trying to hire "A" people - the latter being a term that can pull teams apart rather than bring them together. This talk will consider how best to select the right people to create "A" teams. We'll share insights on how to identify individuals who are genuinely passionate about the product, as well as reinforce the value of being an open, engineering-focused organization.
