Podcast – Episode 43:
Selling everything but the house 

Leading the technology solution behind a very dynamic and complex supply base

The world of technology opens up endless avenues of possibilities. It’s an enabler and creator of healthy businesses (i.e., the bottom line). So, it’s wonderful to come across a business that uses technology to create success in acquiring and selling unique items. And when we say unique, we mean one-off items. So, the guest of this podcast works for a business just like that. The VP of technology, Brian Powell at EVERYTHING BUT THE HOUSE (EBTH), tells us all about his operation, his team’s challenges, and how they are solving them.

You need a solid foundation of really great developers that themselves are teachers and want to curate talent, and creating an environment where people have the time to pair program, do pull requests, do code reviews, and share knowledge rather than just shipping things as fast as possible.

Key takeaways from the podcast are: 

  • Finding the sweet spot in Lean, Kanban, and Scrum to create high performing teams 
  • Adapting to huge differentials in demand on a platform 
  • The ins and outs of being part of a business that sells anything from old collectible watches to Picasso paintings
