During the Podcast, Ben and David discuss David’s interesting route into technology, as well as the challenges that David has faced when hiring mobile engineers to work on streaming platforms. With the benefit of hiring distributed teams, managers can access a pool of applicants that is far greater than if hiring locally. We speak about how David has successfully led these distributed teams and how working life has been affected by the pandemic.
