Pontos Principais

  • Establish a philosophy of investing in infrastructure that prioritizes one of your most scarce resources— engineering time;
  • Increase knowledge transfer and engagement through onboarding and rotational programs;
  • Implement tools and processes to help navigate through difficult situations and prevent future mishaps.


A look into the cultures that help drive Silicon Valley companies — from fast-paced startups to popular tech giants. In this talk, I’ll share personal insights and experiences about cultural practices that you can apply to help improve the effectiveness of your engineering organizations. Using specific examples from Facebook, Stripe, and more, we’ll discuss how to establish cultures that prioritize engineering velocity, incorporate onboarding and rotational programs to improve efficiency, and how you can prepare for the tough days when things don’t go as planned.
