SHOW NOTES:

Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Tell us about your background, as well as some of the things you’re working on these days at Stripe.

Topic 2 - We’ve discussed the career mindset of people more on the sales/marketing side of companies, but you’re beginning to look at this within engineering teams. Let’s start with the framework of how you think about that for yourself and then for people within your team.

Topic 3 - What are traditional vs non traditional IC and manager paths you can explore?

Topic 4 - How do you think about the engineer vs manager track? Does it always have to be these two options, or are you seeing other paths, maybe more senior options as an IC?

Topic 5 - What are some variations on the above for underrepresented groups?
