Building your Foundations in the Race to Excellence

By Ben Greene

"You have to prepare your skills so that you are prepared for change."

Ben Greene, Director of Engineering at Smarsh, joins Stephen on this episode of Code Bytes.

Innovation continues to be an indispensable buzzword across a plethora of industries; and so remaining at the fore of this has never been more competitive.

Ben and Stephen explore what it takes to ensure you future-proof your success. Crucially, if you race to build something too quickly, your foundations won't be strong enough and you will end up retracing your steps to solve issues.

The pair also discuss what it takes to build a team of exceptional engineers. Again, the need to future-proof your skills is vital and so Ben always seeks individuals for his team that invest in continuous growth and learning. For Ben, "that's the differentiator when deciding who to hire."

Thank you Ben for joining us on Code Bytes!
