HubSpot's Secret for Onboarding Engineering Leaders: Nadia Alramli (Engineering Director, HubSpot)
Play episode · 36 min

Building trust across the board and becoming familiar with the whole context of a company is a common challenge for engineering leaders and managers as they transition to a new workplace. Nadia Alramli explains HubSpot's process to set up newly hired managers for their role.

In this interview we're covering:

  • The challenges of transitioning to a new company as an engineering leader
  • HubSpot's engineering leader onboarding process
  • The idea behind the process
  • Differences between the leadership onboarding and the engineer onboarding experience
  • The documentation of the process
  • The crucial factors
  • Measuring the success
  • Alternatives of HubSpot's manager onboarding process

Excerpt from the interview:

"Engineering leaders during the embedding process don’t have privileged access to information, nor management responsibilities. They’re expected to focus exclusively on doing an individual contributor’s job. They take the same training courses and go through the same engineer onboarding process as everyone else.

Leaders and managers are switching between the different engineering teams they will be responsible for in this period. They’re building features, fixing bugs, and reporting to the manager of the team they’re working with at the time.

The embedding experience is a great way to learn HubSpot’s tech stack, the product details, and the guiding principles. But really, it’s all about the relationships you get to build with the engineers. The whole point is the trust you build."

JSJ 455: Introducing and Understanding Svelte and Sapper with Mark Volkmann
This week the panel is joined by Mark Volkmann to discuss Svelte and how it compares and differs from front-end frameworks such as React and Angular. Mark has written a book and has given talks about Svelte and also about Sapper, an application framework built on top of Svelte. He explains to the panel how Svelte components are defined differently than other JavaScript frameworks, and how they are actually compiled into the production code, which isn’t dependent on any external libraries. He also explains why and how Svelte forgoes the use of a virtual DOM, using direct DOM manipulations instead. Finally he describes Sapper and explains how it can be used to quickly and easily create Web-apps that use SSR, static pages generation and dynamic routing.
