Hi Jon,

How much of the engineering team at Streamlit was hired from the open-source community?

Did you use the fact that Streamlit is open-source to create an interview exercise to hiring candidates?

Thanks in advance,
Didier Lopes

Jon Roes Ask Me Anything

Directly from the Streamlit community, maybe a handful. Folks who have contributed to open-source before? A ton! In fact, it’s a main source of attraction and interest in working with us.

We considered making it a part of our interview process, but it can be a bit of context build in order to effectively make contributions. Instead, we focused on similar problem areas that had self-contained context.

Makes a ton of sense.

Thanks Jon!
