How He Leads 50 Employees in 28 States (Recruit Rockstars 385)

Think your company has embraced being remote or virtual?

Meet John Jahnke, CEO of Tackle.io

Based in Buffalo NY, John leads a team of 50 employees located in 28 states.

Tackle.io has created a Cloud Marketplace Platform that enables software companies to sell via the cloud. The Platform makes it easy to list software on AWS, Azure, and GCP… with zero engineering resources.

So, John’s team allows companies to focus on goto market & selling vs integration. Customers include Pagerduty, Github, and Snowflake.

And clearly, John’s doing something right. He’s raised major funding from Bessemer Venture Partners and Sandusky Ventures.

In this 20-minute conversation, he shares how he’s successfully scaled a distributed team.
