Hiring is hard. Hiring in tech is often harder because we tend to focus on concrete, measurable skills and often ignore or devalue soft skills since they're not as easy to evaluate.

Geared at both IC's and Managers, come learn some directed ways of thinking about hiring, conducting interviews, and performing valuations with concrete examples that can be used in practice to improve your hiring pipeline.

Brian is an SRE at Twitter where he works on Core Services and all the things they touch (so pretty much everything). Often that means just trying to ensure all the different services and people get along together.
