What makes someone successful on my team, is having an entrepreneurial attitude, and not waiting to be told what to do. At Wowza, we hire talented people and expect them to tell us what we should do instead. I want people who challenge status quo, speak up against the crowd, and stand strong in their convictions.

We have an ability or environment where we generate a lot of ideas and very few of those ideas actually work. I believe you have to fail enough times to understand how to succeed.
