Meet Ellora Praharaj, Director of Reliability Engineering, and Jon Chan, Director of Engineering at Stack Overflow, who’ll go over some aspects of the engineering culture that they have at Stack Overflow, how the engineering team is growing, and what will tell you what they're looking for in new team members.
📼 If your dream is to pursue a career at Stack Overflow, Ellora and Jon share three essential takeaways to consider: first, be excited about building high-quality products with technology. Second: value collaboration- Stack Overflow has always been about how the power of community and working together can make the world a better place.

A Career at Stack Overflow - Be Part Of A Diverse And Dynamic Team
Stack Overflow is a place that's been built by developers and for developers. And what that means for the engineering team is the need to build a team that's as diverse and as dynamic as the community that they are serving. In Jon’s words, when he first joined the company, as an out, queer, person of color, and a self-taught programmer, too, it was important that he joined a company that really made him feel comfortable being himself. When Jon joined Stack Overflow, he found that they weren't just supportive of him, individually, but really gave him the resources to pay that support forward. Not just to the team, the broader company, but even the developer community that Stack Overflow is serving, too.
