Lists and Growing Organically with Doist’s Gonçalo Silva

Goncalo Silva
What does it look like when a company is naturally born remote? Gonçalo Silva, the CTO at Doist - makers of Todoist and Twist - tells us about this, how it influenced his career path, hiring approach, and much more in this week’s episode of the DistantJob Podcast

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

Todays’ guest is Gonçalo Silva, CTO of Doist. Obviously, we dig into the importance of checklists and process in managing remote teams, but we also talk about a lot of other things, including, but not limited to: how to test potential employees for remote skills; what are some good ways to document decisions in a way to have a single source of truth; and what an 80-year-old book can still teach us about management, even when it comes to the Future of Work.
