About this Episode

Joel Schlundt is the CTO of TextUs and Brittany's boss. After diving into two origin stories, the pair discuss the Senior Backend Engineer role they are hiring for, applications they never want to build again and the importance of off-sites for remote teams. They cap the conversation off with a horror story.
