    Building an engineering team for every stage of company growth.

    Segment Description:
    In the fast-paced startup world, there’s one thing you can always rely on: constant change. This makes work challenging and stimulating, but it also means recruiting can be a real challenge. How do you describe your company to prospective candidates when the work environment is constantly evolving? And how do you attract people who will be the right fit for this precise moment in your growth, but who will also continue to be a good fit in the future?
    These are questions Tony Meehan, Endgame’s VP of Engineering, has spent a lot of time considering. Tony will share anecdotes and advice from his experience overseeing the growth of the Endgame engineering team. As one of Endgame's first engineers, he has played (and continues to play) a critical role in the hiring and development of the team.
