How to build a developer tool company by Moritz Plassnig @ TU Wien, EI 9 Hlawka Hörsaal

Codeship is a startup from Vienna focused on developer tools. It was founded by three people and started out in 2011 with a simple vision: “Build for the builders”. By now, Codeship got thousands of customers, ten thousands of software engineers using their products actively and 30 employees around the world. Building a product for other developers is very fulfilling, but also very different and comes with its own challenges. Moritz will share some of the lessons he learned while building Codeship over the last several years. He will talk about their relocation to Boston in 2013 and participation in the Techstars Accelerator Program, the differences between the US and Austria as well as the challenge to find and manage a team of 30 employees on two continents.
