Built and managed a 100% remote team of 130+ people. Specific focus on running and building remote teams, hiring/recruiting engineers & developers, and building an amazing work culture.
I was in a 50/50 business partnership with one of my best friends for 10+ years that ultimately went bad. I have a lot of experience and thoughts on what we could have done to improve it prior to getting to that point, as well as what we did to work on it near the end. This is something I am very passionate about as I do not anyone to go through what I went through.
I talk to a lot of business partners locally and can share a wide array of experiences on how to keep it healthy and what to do when you hit problems.
I've been doing remote teams and companies since 1999. The largest company I ran remotely grew from ~25 people to 130+ spread out over 18+ countries. This included teams doing software development, customer service, and dev ops. A lot of experience in hiring, remote management, and remote communications.
I've done 5 other businesses all remote, so a lot of exp :).
I have a lot of experience recruiting engineers and developers to a very un-sexy business. And, creating a work culture that kept them engaged and happy even when they were pursued by Google/Netflix and other large tech companies. In the 8 years before the business was sold we only lost 1 software developer and 2 dev-ops team members on a team of ~130.
I can help you with how to get a developers attention, how to recruit them and sale them on your team/business, and how to retain them over the long hall.
Amazing call! Ben went straight to the point and gave me so much insights about managing and hiring from his previous experiences that is definitely going to save so much time in the future. If one has a remote team and is looking for advice, book a call with Ben right now!
Ben was a great resource to talk to! This was my first Clarity call and I'm so glad I scheduled it. I gave Ben a few questions ahead of time and he was quick to jump into the conversation and answer questions with specific examples of his experiences. I've already recommended Ben to friends!
LOVED talking with Ben. He's incredibly knowledgeable. Will definitely need to have another conversation after I implement what we've discussed so far.
Great advice. Would definitely call Ben again.
100 Percent Wisdom. Will call again.
