Episode 23 – Passionate Teams at Spotify
In this episode, I talk to Marcin Floryan, Director of Engineering at the Spotify Playback Tribe.
Here is a short description ofMarcin:
I combine my passion for technology and for working with people to create an environment where people can apply their skills and experience working together towards a shared goal. I care about sustainable, continuous and frequent delivery of value and help teams take pride in the quality of the solutions they build.
I see engineering teams as complex adaptive systems and thus work by applying principles and practices from the domains of agile, lean, systems thinking, and similar to allow for the desirable outcomes to emerge in the presence of sensible guiding constraints.
I strive to be an inclusive and compassionate leader. I care about creating an environment of psychological safety where failure is encouraged and used as an opportunity to learn, where people can fully be themselves and where diverse opinions are encouraged and conflict seen as a healthy opportunity for learning and growth.
I remain firmly grounded in technology to guide strategy and vision in line with the latest development on the market and leverage good architectural practices. I promote engineering practices from Extreme Programming.
I constantly improve my knowledge and skills with relentless curiosity and determination.
