On November 14th we're excited for a discussion on building a technical team from 1, to 10, to 30+ members, and
Finding a technical co-founder or CTO
Building a technical team
Prioritizing what types of developers to hire for
Recruiting for developers & engineers
Compensating your development team
And much more!
