Why Software Engineers must Build to Impact

By Liam Holohan

On this episode of Code Bytes, Stephen is joined by Liam Holohan, CTO of DSST.

Sharing his journey through software engineering, we explore the fantastic array of teams he's been part of; from financial services to the defence sector, Liam has contributed to a breadth of innovation.

Whilst it's been a successful career, it's not been without its challenges. And Liam emphasises that it often isn't the technology that's most challenging, but rather people and talent.

Creating a high-performance environment for the most exceptional technologists is no straight-forward task. What does effective management look like? How do you ensure the people element of the business is not lost amidst technology-focused growth?

An ever topical subject, Liam and Stephen explore the matter, providing us with a masterclass in culture, careers and change.
