Podcast with Jon Dahl, Co-Founder and CEO of Mux

On Season 4 Episode 5 of the Think Like A Founder podcast, Maureen Taylor speaks with Jon Dahl. 

Jon Dahl is the Co-Founder and CEO of Mux. Mux’s API makes it easier for developers to build their dream video experience. They offer a number of essential streaming services, as well as high-quality data to power video streaming around the world.

Before Mux, Jon co-founded Zencoder and was the VP of Technology at Brightcove. Both are companies in the world of online video. Jon has a graduate degree in philosophy and theology.

It’s like the reality distortion field that people talked about with Steve jobs, where he could walk into a room and Podcast with Jon Dahlhe could convince you that the world was different than you thought it was before. And that said it was really powerful, but that’s gotta be balanced by that growth mindset where you’re actually open to new information and you’re open to being wrong and you’re open to challenging yourself. And if you don’t have that growth mindset, I think that’s when you go off the rails.

– Jon Dahl

GMU Live

Hyatt tapped SNP to create a video promoting GMU Live — the onsite portion of General Manager University onboarding program. SNP traveled to Chicago for the shoot to coach the speakers on camera and capture compelling b-roll that highlighted the new general managers’ emotional, and educational journey into Hyatt.

Hyatt Glasswing Overview

SNP produced an internal marketing video to help raise awareness and adoption of Hyatt’s new Glasswing application, which tracks real-time financial data, KPIs, and other core metrics for owners and operators. From conducting the interviews, to coaching the speakers on camera and editing the video, SNP owned the content creation at each step of production.

Back in 2013, Asana was still a young company and some of their managers were experiencing leadership roles for the first time. So they needed to learn how to be, well, leaders. Like how to be more influential, directive, confident, and how to deal with conflict. Because if they could flourish then Asana could start to scale even faster (and without so many growing pains).

Enter SNP.

We started with just one 1:1 coaching relationship. But the good word spread fast. Soon enough more people from Asana’s management team were seeking our unique third party perspective, skill-based approach, and communications expertise to build their personal brand, strengthen their careers, and achieve more. (And did we mention the coaching program was a perk that attracted new talent? We didn’t? Well…) Eight years later and Asana is still scaling. And we’re still by their side helping them do it.
