In this episode, we speak with Phil Hübner about his career. We talk about Challengermode and Philip’s mission there. Then we go back and look across his career, which started in his teens, managing a professional esports team and building a MOBA-section for an esports news website, to becoming a pro Dota player. Finally Philip talks about working at industry giants ESL and Twitch and his professional growth.
In part two we talk about growing up in a single parent household, father figures, share experiences on learning to enjoy life as young adults despite coming from relatively weak economical households, and we touch on Phil’s mental models and the transformations he underwent. We also cover our shared career path and reflect on some conflicts we had at the time – a redemption arc.
