- In a prior venture, Erik was the owner of bakeries. In developing certain channels for distribution, he ran into a problem where he didn't have visibility to his product at places he didn't control. He figured out the answer was cell phones, and a centralized location for entities to consume this information.
- Ultimately, Daniel realized that some of the more interesting concepts being used in crypto - specifically, distributed key management - could be used in solutions outside of the block chain world. In a discussion with his co-founder, they figured out that solutions like this didn't exist, and that they wanted to build it.
- Early 2018, Erik's co-founder started working through the traditional problems of QA testing. After getting fed up with it, he decided that he just needed to build his own solution, and needed someone to help him turn it into a business. Erik joined the team, and has been changing the QA testing landscape ever since.
- Lior realized that though companies like Amazon and Uber could create connected and seamless service for their customers, the rest of the world would have difficult building platforms around logistics, customer ownership, and visibility.
- Justin noticed over the years of working remote that the accepted culture of getting stuff done was to have meetings all day. He and his team started thinking about how to increase the amount of communication that happened during the day, without increasing the number of meetings.
- Previously, Matt co-wrote an open source product called Meteor, attempting to make it simpler and faster to write JS applications. At the core of the tool, there was a capability to write a query to move data around, instead of writing the code. They took that capability, and formed what they are focused on today.
Their tech. Their products… Their stories.
In a tech startup, how do you get from an idea on the back of a napkin to a fully functioning product? Code Story is a podcast featuring tech leaders, reflecting the roads they travelled and the products they created. On the show, we interview tech visionaries, digging into the critical moments of what it takes to change an industry, and build & lead a team that has your back.
Hosted by Noah Labhart, Code Story is a window into the digital startup world. In their own words, tech veterans share what it feels like to create a world class product, how to recover from critical mistakes, and how to scale your solution to the masses.
We sent out an email yesterday, stating that our podcast feed, which does not include a music bed in the episodes, was available for our patreons.
This was a mistake. The feed without music will be FREE.
My apologies for any confusion or offense made by the prior email, it was 100% unintentional.
If you’d like to access this feed, please reach out to the team directly by replying to this email or contacting us at [email protected].
To celebrate international women’s day, we want to give a shout out to the women in tech, who have been on the podcast to tell the creation stories of their products, teams and companies. Want to see all of these on our site? Check out this tag post:
