Grammarly has a simple but ambitious goal: turn all of its users into great writers. How good is it? We even used it to edit this text - and since Heidi Williams Joined Grammarly a year ago, the company has doubled in size. As Head of Engineering for B2B & Platform, she's at the forefront of crucial new initiatives - all while navigating hypergrowth and keeping users in mind.

Heidi joins us to share the lessons she's learned from hypergrowth, her experience as a CTO and Co-Founder, her time as VP of Engineering at Box, and other leadership lessons. She also breaks down what's next for Grammarly and gives us an inside look at the unique culture that powers Grammarly.

    Why an Autistic Developer is Your Next Great Hire w/ Matt Nigh of UW Medicine

    1:04:58

    Like most fast-growing companies, LinearB spends WAY too much time trying to hire developers.So when we came across a brilliant article about hiring autistic talent, we knew we had to have its author Matt Nigh on the podcast. Matt is one of the most prominent thought leaders on neurodiversity in the workplace.Matt himself was diagnosed with autism late in life following a very unique job interview at Google. He’s since spent countless hours researching, writing and talking about how companies can not only bring neurodiverse talent into the fold, but why engineering teams thrive when they do.In this episode of Dev Interrupted we talk with Matt about best practices in recruiting, hiring and working with neurodiverse coders, how his interview at Google interview led to an autism diagnosis, the ways Matt’s data team at the University of Washington is helping combat COVID and what private companies can learn from the ROI metrics of universities and public institutions.Dan and Matt also took some time to geek out about GitLab.We hope this conversation was as enlightening for you as it was for us and we hope it helps you find your next great hire. Matt's LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/mattnigh/Matt's article on hiring autistic talent: https://medium.com/leading-literally/now-is-the-time-to-hire-autistic-talent-932d4f291644 Join our Discord Community ►► discord.gg/devinterruptedOur Website ►► devinterrupted.com/Want to try LinearB?  Book a LinearB Demo and use the "Dev Interrupted Podcast" discount code.Have 60 seconds?

    Beyond Compliance: Fable’s Mission to Improve Digital Accessibility

    32:40

    It's time we recognize that the way we build digital products is broken. That's because the products we use today represent the people who build them more than the people who use them. There is a digital divide between the experiences of people with disabilities and people who are able-bodied. Bridging this divide is about more than compliance or checking a box. Fable is helping companies practice accessibility at scale with the goal of operationalizing accessibility in the same way we already do for things like DesignOps and DevOps. Listen as Fable's CEO and Co-founder, Alwar Pillai, and Fable's Engineering Manager, Perry Trinier, talk about the importance of inclusive design, the need for digital accessibility and how to integrate accessibility into the development process. Join our Discord Community ►► discord.gg/devinterruptedOur Website ►► devinterrupted.com/Want to try LinearB?  Book a LinearB Demo and use the "Dev Interrupted Podcast" discount code.Have 60 seconds?
