The mental shift from individual contributor to manager – Dave Mason
Dave is Head of Software Engineering at the LADbible Group.
Although he is now technically ‘off the tools’ Dave still loves to code. A passion he has instilled in everyone that works for him and one he has gained through his years of experience as a Head of Software. The high demand for ‘good’ software engineers is a key talking point of the show. Nurturing talent and creating a work environment that allows employees to get satisfaction from their roles is something Dave strives for.
