Sunil Sadasivan talks about some of Buffer’s culture experiments to illustrate how cultivating and iterating on a team's culture can improve happiness, productivity, employee retention, and overall growth. Being a globally distributed team and defaulting to transparency are just two of the many things Buffer culture is known for.

Throughout the journey, Sadasivan has architected the back-end infrastructure, led engineering hiring, pioneered Buffer's diversity initiatives, and helped shape Buffer's culture values.
