Good episode? Give it some love!
Brian Delahunty is the Head of Reliability at Stripe, and was the Site Lead who helped them open and hire for their Seattle office. Throughout this process, he talked to leaders at over a dozen companies who led an HQ2 effort, and learned what worked and what didn’t. Today, he’s sharing those lessons with us.

In this episode, we talk about how he used recruiting as a partner to grow the Seattle office, why Stripe Seattle’s culture is different than Stripe San Francisco, and how managing chronic pain helps him empathize as a manager.
