March 16, 2021


3:00pm-4:00pm CST; 4:00pm-5:00pm EST


1 CPE / 0.1 CEU / CISSP / 1 PDU Credits Awarded


Conference location: Online

This session focuses on why building a team both has similarities and differences from building a product or feature. There are two key points that I discuss:

  1. All technical candidates should still be interviewed explicitly for culture-add
  2. The technical side of the interview should (as close as possible) replicate the way you work in your team (i.e. No one writes code on a whiteboard and few jobs require you to write algorithms all day).
