This blog is a collection of practical guides covering everything from recruiting good software engineers, to building and managing an awesome tech team, a.k.a. talent management.
- recruiting to build or expand a tech team,
- managing engineers to deliver a product or project,
- in charge of improving team productivity,
- facing talent retention challenges,
- without a non-tech co-founder or CTO?
If you are, you will benefit from following the blog. I focus on getting things done for the individual challenges, and then connecting the dots to form a systematic process and overall strategy.
My name is Jeff. In this blog, I will use the pen name: Obito. You can find out more about my past exploits in my personal website here.
I wrote the articles based on my working experience in the local tech space. I have worked here in various technical and advisorial roles: tech lead, head of technology, full-stack developer and freelance consultant. During that time, I always heard questions from founders about the challenges they faced as in the list above. My answers to those questions formed the basis of my writings.
Obito is the name of the ninja who founded Akatsuki, the most badass ninja organization in the history. With the help of his talented and capable followers, he achieved world domination (nearly)—an excellent metaphor for the blog!
The blogging goal
Obito would like to share his secret arts of tech recruiting, team building and tech leadership with you. He wants you to learn and do better than your competitors and win the talent war.
I abhors the way bad-tier local companies treat their engineers. It is not uncommon I heard engineering department being managed as a “cost center”—an operational or maintenance unit that has no direct contribution to the company’s bottom line. So I decided to write, to start an educational blog to change that mindset, slowly.
Occasionally I also recommend good software developers from my network in my emails. So subscribe to the newsletter if you don’t want to miss out on them.
