Rippling VP of Sales Matt Plank


Podcast: Growth Unscripted


I love a humbling story. In this episode, Matt Plank opens up to Carolyn Betts on what went wrong (from both a product and hiring perspective) during hyper-growth at Zenefits. Then, rather than going the “safe route”, Matt follows his former Zenefits co-founder (Parker Conrad) to his new company Rippling (FYI Rippling is an incredible platform, it’s a “must have” for any scaling company.)

Favorite quotes:

“We were hiring so fast it was hard to find enough people to interview.”

“When you put humans around a manual process, you tend to mask over the real (product) deficiencies”

– Matt Plank, VP of Sales @ Rippling (talking about hiring at Zenefits)
