Welcome to Founders, the show that looks at the people behind some of the worlds most exciting companies.

This is the first in a series of “Fireside chats” with company founders, it is an informal discussion around how they started and grew their business.

In this episode we catch up with Joel Gascoigne, co-founder and CEO of Buffer.

Buffer was founded in 2010 as a way to easily schedule tweets. Within a few years, Buffer has become one of the leading social media management tools on the web, with over 2.5m users and 40,000 paying customers.

Buffer now has a distributed team of 35 people, working together across 5 continents and generating $550k revenue per month.

In this video we discuss why Buffer has a distributed team, what that means and how it works. Plus his radical stance on transparency and company culture, why did he publish the salaries of all Buffer’s employees?
