Code Story S5E10: Slater Victoroff, Indico

At the time of recording, I think this was the biggest podcast I had ever been on. It's not something I track explicitly, but they're certainly bigger than most. I also really liked the idea of this podcast.


I sometimes feel like engineers and other technical folks are a touch dehumanized. There's a prevailing view in many organizations that "technical" things are some magical realm beyond the understanding of mere mortals. That engineers are simply born differently with some innate ability to understand systems that others don't have. Dilbert calls it "The Knack"


One of the things I love about working at indico is that we really push to break down this wall. Our go to market team has a deep appreciation and respect for engineering work, coupled with a real desire to understand what's going on under the hood. Similarly our product team realizes just how important and difficult it is to sell enterprise software well. This allows us to collaborate effectively and build cohesive strategies across the organization.


Code Story has a similar kind of philosophy as they spend time digging into the more human aspects of technical founders. I got to talk about a whole host of topics from my obsession with vegan baking to MMA to fiction writing. It was an absolute blast and I think it's worth a listen.
