Building A Remote Engineering Culture - Agile Singapore Conference 2016

Published on: Monday, 17 October 2016

Speaker: Jon Chan (jonhmchan), Lead, Marketing Engineering @ Stack Overflow

At Stack Overflow, we are a remote-first company. That means no matter where you are in the world, if you are a great developer, we want to make sure you’re treated just like you’re in our headquarters in New York. How do you build agile teams when most people are remote? We take this to an extreme: get my first-hand account of what it’s like to work full-time as an engineer at Stack Overflow traveling to 22 cities in 7 countries in three months. You’ll learn what it means to build a truly remote culture, what tools we use to make it possible, and how we do standups, iteration, and communication in a truly international engineering team.
