The Big Read: The Master of Destruction Rides AgainRead more
Feb. 21, 2020 - The organizational structure of a big Silicon Valley tech company is going to change dramatically in the coming years, two leading engineers and executives told The Information subscribers on Friday. In a wide-ranging talk about their careers inside Facebook and Stripe, Nick Schrock and Raylene Yung predicted the rise of more remote and "nodal" work and discussed how recruiting strategies—and tech products themselves—will shift. It was one topic covered in a wide-ranging discussion that spanned from how to evaluate engineering opportunities at startups vs. big companies to what the two look for as they are hiring engineers. Schrock also discussed his decision to leave Facebook and start Elementl, a new big data and infrastructure company.
