Hi everyone! This is Anant. I currently head up the Engineering, IT and Ops functions at Hired as VP of Engineering. Before Hired, I was at Birst for over 5 years running the engineering team there. And before that, I spent a little over a decade at Salesforce building various products before I moved into Engineering management in 2007. I am really excited to join the Plato community and work with many of you going forward.

Hey, I'm available every Friday at 9:00 PM (GMT)
