If You Build It, They Will Come - Honeycomb CEO Christine Yen Tech Seeking Human

    • Technology

Christine Yen is not like other CEO's. She's an engineer, that co-founded a company that has gone onto become, not just a leader in an industry, but also a company that defined the industry category - Observability.
I have watched and admired the rise of Honeycomb from a very close vantage point. Formerly in my role at Dynatrace, who is also a leader in this observability space, I saw them quietly go about their business, without really ruffling any feathers. The Datadog's, New Relic's, Appdynamics, and Dynatracers of the world would end up in head to head battles. We'd be quick to jibe back about each other's capabilities but Honeycomb seemed to be walking to the beat of it's own drum.
It fascinated me to the point that I really wanted to know more.
In this podcast, I had a long sit down, with Christine Yen, the companies co-founder and CEO. We talked about the companies origin and original idea, early success, through the challenges with Go To Market, and being a female tech leader.
Enjoy. I certainly did.
