This One's For The Dreamers

By David Brainard

We're taught how to aim high, to aim for better, in this episode of Code Bytes. Stephen is delighted to welcome David Brainard, CTO at EverQuote, to the show.

David perfectly captures an industry-wide problem when he states: the biggest challenge facing the space is the constant need to grow.

How do you respond to a pressure that is acute and chronic in equal measure?

The pair explore the role of talent acquisition amidst all of this. For many, a major struggle is finding the best people for their business.  So David and Stephen discuss new emerging hubs for talent, and who exactly you should be looking for.

David looks for people that are conscientious and curious; those that dream about coding and constantly aim for better and greater innovation.

Thank you David for joining us on Code Bytes!
