What does it take to build and maintain high-performing, innovative teams? That’s the question we tackle on this week’s episode of “The Innovation Engine” podcast. Gill Haus, CTO of Paid Services at AOL, joins us to talk about how to structure teams to ensure they are set up for success, why charisma is a must for any leader looking to lead successful teams, and why “agile” is as much a state of mind as it is a number of rules that are written in stone.
We draw on Gill’s leadership experience at companies like BillMeLater, PayPal, Taxi Magic, and AOL to find out what makes the most successful technology teams tick. At PayPal, Gill served as Director of Development Engineering and Senior Director of Product Development, roles in which he oversaw large development and architecture teams working on one of the most well-known electronic payment platforms in the world. At Taxi Magic, Gill was SVP of Technology and was responsible for all aspects of technology, including Product Development, Technology Strategy, Software Architecture, and more. In his role at AOL, Gill is responsible for Paid Services development and engineering.
