On this episode of Boxes and Lines, Ronan and JR speak with IEXer Eric Quinlan, better known as Stack. Stack has been with IEX for nearly a decade and is currently the Senior Software Development Engineer in Test. They reminisce on how an impromptu coffee meeting turned into Stack's unofficial-official job interview for IEX. They discuss developing and writing software to build testing tools for quality assurance and the human factors that need to be considered when creating software. We learn about the infamous Stacks Stumps that are always keeping fellow IEXers on their toes, and the unconventional hiring process of young talent. Recorded November 17, 2022.
