The current status quo in running and scaling out teams is to have everyone work in the same location. With the rise of open source, a different model of working and collaborating has emerged and is being adopted by more and more companies—especially as they struggle to hire talent, build diverse teams, and keep up with economies of scale that haven’t existed before.
Mathias Meyer discusses the team that’s running continuous integration platform Travis CI and shares some lessons learned as the team grew and become more distributed. Mathias explores how to structure communication in distributed and remote teams, the tools that are available today to increase collaboration while also increasing visibility, and the challenges of working across multiple time zones and countries.
Mathias is the CTO at Reaction Commerce and the former co-founder and CEO at Travis CI. He’s excited about helping engineering leaders and co-founders succeed. He’s still trying to figure it all out.
