Episode 2 S3: How to lead a tech team.
Sam is a software developer, hooked since the age of about 10, starting out with a ZX Spectrum and never looking back. Since then he gained a degree and worked his way through Softwire, McKinsey, LShift, Lumi (a startup) and now Tesco.
He is a Head of Software Development, leading a team of 30+ developers building Quote API, which is responsible for pricing baskets of goods across Tesco, including the surprising complexities of promotions and tax.
He takes pride in having a happy and capable team, delivering real impact that is seen by most of the people in the UK, even if they don’t know it.
