    Software Engineering Manager Kate Taggart

    Software Engineering Manager Kate Taggart

    Kate Taggart is an Engineering Manager at Stripe, they come from a very abstract and technical background, which was interesting for me as a self-taught developer. Kate covered their own experiences as an individual contributor and as a manager, comparing and contrasting the two for my benefit. It's probably important to note that I interviewed Kate back in August of 2019, it took me a bit longer than expected to share this one!
