Author: Jeff Hyman (podcast host)
Abstract: This podcast edition, hosted by Jeff Hyman, features InfluxData CEO Evan Kaplan, who previously served as CEO of iPass and Aventail. The host notes that though scaling a hypergrowth Silicon Valley is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, for Kaplan, this has been a 3 times-in-a-lifetime experience. In this 20-minute conversation, Evan reveals how to create an amazing culture, how to hire the best, and how to build a remote-first organization. With 130 employees, InfluxData has created a platform for handling the massive amounts of data that are created by the Internet of Things (IoT).
