Dr. James Stanier never intended to become a manager, let alone a Director or VP. He certainly never intended to publish a book about it either! Dr. Stanier shares his story from doing a Ph.D. to failing to get an academic job to joining a start-up which grew rapidly through numerous venture capital investment rounds. After reading lots of books on management in the "business" world, he applied what he knew to help shape the Engineering department at Brandwatch and now Shopify.

Dr. James Stanier is (soon to be) Director of Engineering @ Shopify, and before that was SVP Engineering at Brandwatch. He runs theengineeringmanager.com and has published Become An Effective Software Engineering Manager with Pragmatic Programmers, which will soon be a course on Educative. There's another book on remote working in the works too.
