🎙️ Podcast

What makes a good engineering manager? Join us for the latest Creating ZEAL podcast episode where Host Adam Cuppy discusses becoming comfortable with discomfort and the noble pursuit of being a leader with Tramale Turner, Engineering Manager at Stripe in Seattle.

With a background in marketing at Volkswagen and Nissan that transitioned into software engineering at Nintendo, Tramale moved into a management role that eventually led him to realize that being the really smart person doesn’t necessarily mean being a good leader.
