272: StackShare – What You Can Learn From Tech Stacks

Jun 10, 2017


http://newenglandsoundlight.com/lighting-rentals/ StackShare is a software discovery platform that lets you see all the best software tools and who’s using them. They are essentially a developer-only community of engineers, CTOs, and VPEs from some of the world’s top startups and companies. Their goal is to help developers share knowledge about the tools they use and why they use them. Think of it as a LinkedIn for the $150B SaaS software industry, starting with dev tools.

Any engineer, entrepreneur or CTO can go to StackShare to see exactly what software and combinations are powering growth at Airbnb, Pinterest, Instacart, and other technology leaders. This is a breakthrough as many large enterprises struggle with digital transformation to phase out legacy systems.

According to Yonas Beshawred, CEO of StackShare, there are important questions any business leader should consider regarding the stack’s role in today’s rapidly changing technology landscape.

  • In a software-driven world, what is the role of the technology office in leading business change?
  • What does a company’s—or a person’s—tech stack say about them?
  • How will the stack redefine the way people seek jobs and the way companies recruit?
With StackShare—a startup with 100,000+ developers, engineers, managers, and CTOs as users—Silicon Valley’s top companies, including Airbnb, Instacart, and Spotify, are able to share and discuss their tech stacks. Companies can also learn what tech stacks peers and competitors are using, while job-seekers can discover which tools are most in demand and used at their dream companies.

Yonas Beshawred is Currently on a mission to transform the way that all SaaS tools and infrastructure services are bought and sold at StackShare. After recently featuring in the New York Times in an article entitled “New Technology Is Built on a ‘Stack.’ Is That the Best Way to Understand Everything Else, Too?” I invited him onto my podcast to find out more about StackShare are helping developers see the SaaS tools and technologies, and who’s using them.
