Learn to build humane, effective engineering organizations

Want to be a more effective engineering leader?

Every week, you'll get an email that will challenge your thinking and provide new approaches to leadership. Also useful for product and design leaders!
    The course is free. I respect your privacy. Unsubscribe anytime.
    I offer a paid version of the engineering leadership course, and a frontline management bootcamp course.

    Read by leaders from Salesforce, Gitlab, Slack, Netlify, and many other companies.

    👋 Hi, I'm Jade Rubick.

    I advise 💻 startups and medium sized companies on how to organize people 🧑‍🦰 to build great things together 🚀.

    I'm a management and leadership geek 🤓, and love to share what I've learned. I see a lot of great management content on the internet 🌐, but much of what I've learned, I don't see anywhere else. So I write ✍️ it down to share.

    When you subscribe ✨ to my engineering leadership newsletter course, you will receive an email 📧 each week with something that should be useful.

    The most common themes in my writing are principles and constraints that govern how we work together, humane/sustainable management, and incremental/feedback rich product development. But you'll see writing on many topics, including diversity/equity/inclusion, engineering standards, running projects, and communication.

    I also offer a paid version 💰 of this course. This supports 💚 my writing -- the more support I get, the more I'll be able to write. Use your "professional development" budget: pay for it and expense it. I've been so thankful 🙏 for the support! Although most of the curriculum is the same, the paid version offers additional benefits, such as an optional 1-1 session. You can read more about the paid courses I offer here.
