Hiring Philosophy

Building a world class product team, as fast as possible.

Our Goal

Our goal is to build a world class product team as fast as possible - for avoidance of doubt "product" means PMs, Designers, Analysts, and TPMs (technical project managers). Of course, this is easier said than done.

To accelerate hiring, we need to be disciplined about what is important to us and what is not. Further, it is vital that we learn to hire and train people with high potential but little or no PM experience. We have the responsibility to set up a program by which young upstart PMs can get the training they need to succeed, and we are putting together an APM (associate PM) program to support this.

The absolute fundamental attributes of any candidate for any role must, at minimum, include the following:
Work ethic
Values alignment


Hire for potential not experience

Domain knowledge is irrelevant and sometimes harmful
