As bol.com we are transitioning to a product-led organization. In previous Techlab podcast episodes, we discussed several aspects of this transition. One of the viewpoints we haven’t discussed is that of the software engineer.
At bol.com we like our teams to be autonomous when it comes to implementing solutions to help our customers. However if people are completely free to do whatever they want to reach a team goal we might end up in the bottom right corner of the picture due to lack of direction. We like to be in the upper right corner where there’s both freedom and alignment. The other parts of the diagram are of course less desirable for our software engineers and data scientists.
Peter is very honest in this episode (the stage is not the place he is really comfortable at) and Peter Paul is sharing his first experience with Improv (is it a small trauma Peter Paul?).
So time to talk about...
During the spaces summit this year, I did a talk on “Chaos Engineering: Why we should embrace chaos”.
I've been working as a software developer since 2008 and have been at bol. com since 2016.
In this episode, we are exploring a topic that is definitely work-related but not that tech-related: Dealing with stress in the tech sector. At bol. com we have at least twice a year an employee engagement survey.
Covid-19 Trilogy Part III - Adapting our way of working
Covid-19 rules the world, so it determines the subjects for our podcast. Just like others, we moved from studio recording to home recording. Basically working from home (WFH) and adapting our way of working.
This episode is on women in tech. Our guests are two speakers at the upcoming European Women in Tech Conference later this month in Amsterdam. To be honest, if we look at the hosts of this podcast and if we look at our guest list of the past episodes.
