About the host

Hey there, my name is Jeff. I am a Software Engineer and I have worked in 5 tech startups including one that I founded and for Nokia when they were hip. In my professional career I have been in over 500 interviews and found it frustrating that a lot of what is out there on tech interviews was, well, outdated. Because interviews suck, I decide to share what I know about the interview process and also interview people at awesome companies to help you get the tech job you always wanted. Couple of other cool things, I spoke on TEDx a few times and published a book so I take communication seriously and I want to make sure that when you listen to this podcast, it will be worth your time.
