Moving off the monolith: Implementing a decentralized framework to drive scale-up growth
Scaling and re-platforming your operating systems to meet the scale of your company can be a never-ending task. Re-engineering, re-training, and re-tooling can all quickly become overwhelming. Our guest today discusses his approach to refocusing and building out a technical and decentralized framework in a company that had previously viewed tech as an enabler, rather than a driver of business growth.

When it comes to scaling up, time is everything, and it feels like there’s never enough. Implementing a solid culture of experimentation can deliver the right balance between speed and standardization needed to optimize growth.

He discusses how he built a culture of experimentation that enabled him to scale Picnic from an idea to over 3,000 employees and how the culture continues to drive growth by optimizing the developer experience.
