Short Byte: Rob Zuber - Being an executive first
Jul 30, 2021
Peter Bell

As a CTO, you're not just responsible for running the engineering team...

Because you're also a C-level executive with the responsibility to help the executive team to leverage technology to achieve their business goals.

So how can you maximize the value you're bringing to your organization? The answer is to be an "executive first".

And that's what Rob Zuber, CTO at CircleCI, talks about in this short byte. He shares what the CTO brings to the leadership team, the biggest difference between a CTO who's focused on their org versus being an active member of the leadership team, how to balance your responsibilities to both the engineering team and leadership team, and why it's important to focus on outcomes - not egos.

This episode is brought to you in partnership with Bugsnag, who invites you to join the Apps + Coffee Connection! The Apps + Coffee Connection is a new mobile and web app community for engineering and product leaders to converse about industry topics. Every third Friday of the month we meet to discuss topics such as process efficiencies, tools, team management and future thinking. You can join the community by adding this recurring event to your calendar.
