EP 38: Alex Bouaziz, CEO of Deel on SVB, remote work and more.
On this week’s episode of The Aarthi and Sriram Show, we have Alex Bouaziz, CEO of Deel. Deel is a human resources platform with a focus on a global/remote workforce and at the heart of many of the trends in remote work in recent times.
We recorded this episode in the days following the events at Silicon Valley Bank so got to talk about how Alex saw events play out from his perspective right at the beginning.
In this episode, we cover: SVB crisis and its effects on startups / payroll, origin story of Deel, how pandemic affected global work culture, hiring in SF vs. globally, remote work, being a savage founder, mass lay-offs, regulations, growing Deel 0-1, and more!
