Recently, our engineering team hosted a meetup at our headquarters in conjunction with the San Francisco Engineering Leadership Community (SFELC) for engineering leaders across the Bay Area.

A panel of representatives from Houzz, Robinhood, Lime, DoorDash and Co Leadership, discussed the transition from large companies to startups. Panelists agreed that scrappy startups optimize for vision, agility and quick execution. With fewer stakeholders, smaller companies can make decisions quickly and try different approaches until they find the solutions that work best. You can watch a video of the panel at this link.

Here are a few photos from the event:
