You have a team of 10-20 engineers and are ready to scale. Clearly, you need to plan headcount, recruitment and budgets, but how do you go about this? 

With so much uncertainty and constant change in a start-up and scale-up environment where do you begin?

Don't fret, we have you covered on the School of Hiring podcast!

In this episode, Konstanty Sliwowski, a veteran of 20 years in the world of recruitment and executive search speaks to Alex Allan, an interim CPO and a respected engineering and product consultant who focuses on scaling small engineering and product teams and taking them to the next level. 

Alex has worked for Awin, Urban Sports Club and recently GotPhoto.com as an interim CPO. He has planned and executed scaling of teams across multiple organisations and knows what steps to take when you are getting ready to go to the next level. He also knows what traps are lurking and shares with us how they can be avoided.

The three takeaways from this podcast:

  1. Engagement of teams and time
  2. Plan ahead in 3-6 month cycles with the teams
  3. How to prepare yourself and your team for interviews
