Company Culture and Fighting Ageism with Sharon Koifman

Sharon Koifman DistantJob
Is the remote work world biased against older and more experienced professionals? Or is it a problem with startup culture? DistantJob founder Sharon Koifman and podcast host Luis discuss how to fight ageism and embrace the wisdom that comes with experience in this special episode .

Welcome to the DistantJob Podcast, a show where we interview the most successful remote leaders, picking their brains on how to build and lead remote teams who win.

Sharon Koifman believes every company, from the biggest enterprise to the newly-launched garage startup, should have access to world’s top talent. That’s why he used over 10 years of experience in tech industry recruitment & HR to create DistantJob. 

This episode is a free-flowing conversation where Luis and Sharon discuss the age barriers that new companies erect and what they should change to avoid missing out on some seriously talented older professionals. We talk about lessons from Sharon’s father, and we finish with Sharon dispensing some leadership advice to his younger self, that little whippersnapper!
