Architecting Scalable Engineering E-book Podcast

The Talent Economy Podcast

For many CTOs and directors of engineering, building scalable and successful software engineering teams can be difficult, due in large part to competing pressures and responsibilities. In addition to managing growing teams, they are tasked with keeping an eye on overall business objectives and navigating the pressures of their leadership roles—overcoming technical challenges, motivating the teams, planning for scale, settling disputes, tracking key metrics, and reporting to executive management—all of which require them to make countless vital decisions daily.Toptal's new e-book, Architecting Scalable Engineering Teams, helps leaders build the right team structure to overcome technical challenges, motivate talent, plan for scale, and track key metrics. In this accompanying podcast, Toptal Director of Engineering Marco Santos interviews Josh Holat, the Chief Technology Officer and Co-founder of Cube, a company dedicated to making FP&A faster, smarter, and simpler. Marco is also joined by Nik Patel, Chief Technology Officer and Co-founder at Cohesion, a cloud-based IoT company for smart buildings.This episode highlights three of the e-book's five team models, acknowledging that any given structure for success rests largely on an organization's size, industry, and product:● Stakeholder-focused squads. At Toptal, these squads are integral to building strong relationships between engineers and business stakeholders to ensure consistent delivery of business value.● Front-end/Back-end split structure. Cube, a financial analysis and planning platform, employs two different leaders—one to helm the front-end team and another focused on the back-end team.● Satellite teams. At Cohesion, a cloud-based IoT company for smart buildings, satellite teams ensure rapid scale and eliminate the complexity of hiring, onboarding, paying, and managing each team.Across all five models, engineering leaders recognize the value of temporary help—whether it's to build their teams or to add expertise that they may not have in-house.“Sometimes, a project needs to get done, but the leadership team isn't sure if the increased capacity will be necessary in the long run,” says Santos. “That is why so many startups rely on talent networks like ours to augment their teams. When you have an extra load, it's really nice to have an amazing network of talent that can help scale up.”Download the Architecting Scalable Engineering Teams e-book here to find out:How to overcome the short- and long-term challenges engineering leaders face when building their teams.How engineering leaders structure their teams for scale and success.How to hire and retain the best engineering talent.How to strategically hire freelancers amid rapid growth.Links:MARCO SANTOS, Director of Engineering at ToptalNIK PATEL, CTO and Co-founder at CohesionJOSH HOLAT, CTO and Co-founder at Cube See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Sarah speaks with Kevin Moore about his debut novel, The Book of Souls, the first book in a new series: "Jack Kelly remembers everything about his wife and children. The wonderful smell of his wife's hair, the way she whispers to him at night. His three children running through the house, the sound of their laughter. That was his life before the accident. His near-death experience left him in the in-between space, somewhere between this world and whatever comes next. But he recovered and woke up as his thirteen-year-old self. The doctors tell him it is a false memory, a result of his fall and the insult to his brain from his injuries. "How can a thirteen-year-old boy have a wife and three children?" They ask. But how can he see and hear dead people, demons, ghosts, and shadowy creatures? And if they exist, then is it so inconceivable to believe that Jack's life as a 47-year-old man with a wife and children existed too? Jack begins his journey to find out why and how. And, in the end, he resolves to find his way back to his true existence, back to his family."

Sarah speaks with D.A. Mucci about his debut fantasy novel, the first in a series, Ignatius and the Swords of Nostaw: The towering stone Castle Maol, the unrivaled seat of power in the Kingdom of Skye, sat inland almost bereft of life. Once known for its inspirational beauty, Skye's forests and meadows were more barren than green now, enveloped by stillness instead of bustling wildlife. Lakes and waterways once teeming with marine life lay stagnant. Most of those who lived here survived under gray clouds of despair. Several of the eldest knew of the prophecy that would return the land to its prior golden age and quietly hoped it was true. Only a handful knew the secret that would allow the prophecy to come true. They refused to speak of it. Fifteen-year-old Iggy is good at three things: languages, witty retorts, and running from a fight. When a guy pulls a knife on him during a high school argument, all the banter in the world isn't enough to save him, so Iggy resorts to his backup plan—running. But before he can make his escape, the locket he always wears around his neck heats up, and someone tackles him from behind, pinning him to the ground. Iggy's never thought of himself as a fighter. He's spent his life running from anything that can't be solved with a quick one-liner or a snarky comeback. But as he learns more about the strange place he's landed, one thing becomes abundantly clear: in the World on Skye, they need a hero. And Iggy just might be the one they're looking for, even if he's not so sure."

Sarah speaks with Marco Carocari about his debut novel, Blackout: "Strait-laced forty-something Franco definitely picked the wrong night to get freaky. A hook-up with a hot guy on his Manhattan rooftop, and a joint he's unaware is laced, leaves him dazed. And—if memory serves him—the sole witness to a murder across the street. Except, the cops can't find a crime scene or a body, and Franco's perforated recollections and conflicting testimony leave the detectives unimpressed. When days later the mutilated body of a philanthropic millionaire is discovered, he's not only shocked to learn he knew him, but with Franco's fingerprints all over the crime scene, he quickly graduates from unreliable witness to prime suspect. And the random trick who could alibi him has vanished into the anonymity of the Internet. Unsettled, and confronted with forty-year-old memories, when Franco's father was murdered in front of him during Manhattan's infamous blackout, a shocking revelation finally unmasks the man who pulled the trigger that night. And painting Franco the perfect suspect. With a target on his back and time running out, the truth will set Franco free, or earn him a toe tag at the morgue.

Sarah speaks with Lori McMullen about her historical fiction novel, Among the Beautiful Beasts: "Set in the early 1900s, Among the Beautiful Beasts is the untold story of the early life of Marjory Stoneman Douglas, known in her later years as a tireless activist for the Florida Everglades. After a childhood spent in New England estranged from her father and bewildered by her mother, who fades into madness, Marjory marries a swindler thirty years her senior. The marriage nearly destroys her, but Marjory finds the courage to move to Miami, where she is reunited with her father and begins a new life as a journalist in that bustling, booming frontier town. Buoyed by a growing sense of independence and an affair with a rival journalist, Marjory embraces a life lived at the intersection of the untamed Everglades and the rapacious urban development that threatens it. When the demands of a man once again begin to swallow Marjory's own desires and dreams, she sees herself in the vulnerable, inimitable Everglades and is forced to decide whether to commit to a life of subjugation or leap into the wild unknown. Told in chapters that alternate between an urgent midnight chase through the wetlands and extensive narrative flashbacks, Among the Beautiful Beasts is at once suspenseful and deeply reflective."

Sarah speaks with Paul Russell Semendinger about his new book The Least Among Them: "The Least Among Them is a most special baseball book that looks at the New York Yankees history in an original, unique, and never before written manner. Throughout their history, the New York Yankees have been defined by the legends and the successes of their most famous players. But, as part of their long history, the Yankees have also fielded players that have become lost to history. This book is those players' story, telling the unique histories of the men whose entire major league baseball career lasted but a single game with that game being played as a New York Yankee. While these players may be forgotten, their stories are compelling. Filled with a unique Yankee history, single game stats, and a love of baseball, The Least Among Them tells the story of baseball's most successful franchise in an entirely new way."

Some of her fondest childhood memories involve long afternoons at the library and then reading late into the night. More than ten years ago, she began journaling about the books she read and turned that passion into writing about books. Her first forays were as a guest reviewer on a friend's blog, but she soon realized she wanted to be reviewing and talking about books on a blog of her own. From there, Novel Visits was born. That was in 2016 and, though the learning curve was steep, she loves being a part of the book community. Novel Visits focuses on new novel reviews (print and audio), previews of upcoming releases, and musings on all things bookish. Next Episode In two weeks (December 8), Catherine (@gilmoreguide) and I will be celebrating the 100th episode of Sarah's Bookshelves Live with the “Ask Me Anything” episode.

Highlights Blaes and Emily talk about balancing this new venture alongside their full-time day jobs. How the COVID-19 pandemic impacted their decision. How their community played an incredible role in the first big steps. Between an Instagram account and a Google Doc, the simple beginnings of this endeavor. Going from their ‘dream space' to their ‘dream location'. The role social media plays in their book buying. How the book-buying experience feels like a first date with publishers. Scarves and enamel pins and notecards, oh my!  How they approached including bookish merchandise at the store. Looking at backlist titles versus new releases. The driving factor behind knowing how many of a particular book to order. The way they were able to get a great sense of the reading tastes of their community.
