How to Scale Engineering Processes w/ Twitter’s VP of Engineering

Maria Gutierrez is the VP of Engineering for Strategy and Operations at Twitter. She joins a special livestream of the Dev Interrupted podcast to share her career journey, her strategies for sustainably scaling engineering teams and the three pillars of engineering processes.

Her lessons on team management, building company culture, hiring and mentorship are not to be missed!

Maria has also been working and managing engineering teams remotely for over a decade and offers a great deal of practical advice for team leads everywhere.
