BUILDING A GLOBAL ENGINEERING TEAM

SESSION DESCRIPTION
You will learn how to leverage your mission and your culture to attract engineers, not just locally, but how you can build and manage a team of engineers in locations all around the world. As a young company you are competing with the big kahunas in the Bay Area. You need to develop an edge to make your company a more attractive target.

You also need to think beyond the Bay Area and look for people in other locations. But if you don't do this right, you'll end up with a big headache and lots of rework. In this one-hour class, you will learn the things to look for to recruit quality people anywhere around the world, and especially how to  do so successfully from the start.
 
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Startup founders and leaders and anybody who loses sleep over finding and attracting engineering talent to their team.
 
TAKEAWAYS
  • How to create an engineering cluture that stands out
  • How to decide on location for outsourced teams
  • How find, vet, and manage remote teams
 
PRESENTED BY

Matt has been developing software products for 30 years. He's worked at six startups and helped raise close to $50M in VC in investments as a co-founder for three of them. He also worked at Sun Microsystems for nine (of the good) years, where he first got to deal with the issue of hyper-growth and the impact it has on culture (and viceversa). Matt has built and managed remote enginering teams in Mexico, India, Bulgaria, and Russia. 

Matt currently leads Nearsoft, Inc, a successful software development business, with operations in Mexico.
