49: Fivetran COO Taylor Brown- Chalking the field

March 31, 2021

Taylor Brown (COO of Fivetran) joined Scott Britton and Andrei Newman on the Business Is Human podcast. Here are some key takeaways from the conversation:

  • You have to make a decision about how good you want to be (and hire the people that match that level).
  • Fivetran tries to strike the balance between being a value-based and performant culture
  • People need to know their role, what you expect from them, and the rules in order to perform.
  • Giving people the right amount of ownership and letting them fail is key to growth.
  • Building a lasting, valuable business is a longer process than most people would expect.
  • Work-life balance is a moving target.
