I had the chance to interview Sergei Anikin about how to scale a SaaS product. Sergei Anikin comes with vast experience in “large scale tech” as he was with Skype when it was sold 3 times (eBay, Private Equity, Microsoft) and is CTO at 90-million funded Pipedrive (CRM SaaS) now.

  • Laser-sharp focus on the essential features
  • “Scaling problems are good problems to have”
  • Microservices vs. Monoliths
  • Team structure at scale: Missions and Tribes
  • How they do M&A and post merger integration It was an honor to talk to Sergei Anikin and see him joining alphalist as a new member too.
