‘Show me a product you were involved in building.’ I try to ask as few questions as possible. Instead, I ask the candidates to show me a product they built or were involved in building.

The bold email that led a young surfer to a CEO role

Or Lenchner (35), the CEO of Bright Data, is a surfer. And just like in surfing, his career is full of waves and he just goes with the flow, no big ebbs. No big drama. "Everything at the end is a game," he says. “If there is a crisis you solve it, maneuver a little to the right, a little to the left. When I was 14 I cleaned toilets and I was thrilled about it. If they fire me tomorrow, I will not see it as a low point rather I will learn from it, I will ask what is next, how do I do something that I will enjoy."
