Podcast #23: Gonçalo Silva (CTO, Doist) on building progression frameworks for a distributed team

Posted byNeil Cameron on


We're back after a bit of a break with a new series of Progression Pods - this time we're mixing up the presenter so watch out for some new voices from the team.

In this episode, Gonçalo Silva, CTO at Doist (creators of Todoist and Twist) sits down with Neil to discuss the nine month process they went through to create a progression framework for their globally distributed team of 100 people.

They discuss building the framework transparently, iteratively gathering and incorporating team member feedback and how they use their framework to help determine compensation.
