Rick is back from parental leave, so the podcast is back to its normal format. This week we talk about his recent revenue milestone, some updates on my marketing work, and more.
What I've been working on
We're getting ready to hire for a couple of positions at Less Annoying CRM. We're not in a huge rush, but if the right person comes along, we'd like to hire both a software engineer and a product designer.
There are a few differences compared to previous times we've hired:
- We'd like to hire someone with at least a bit of experience. In the past, we've hired almost exclusively entry-level people. Overall, I prefer hiring beginners and mentoring them, but I think it occasionally makes sense to bring in some outside expertise, so that's the plan this time.
- We normally do one massive recruiting campaign, get a lot of applicants, interview a bunch of people around the same time, and make a hire at the end of it. This time, because we're not in a rush, we might just put feelers out in the local tech community and wait for the right person to come along. It could happen quickly, or it could take months before we find the right person.
This is a big departure from how we normally do things, so I'm trying to figure out the best approach. I'm the type of person who hates networking, LinkedIn, etc. but I think that's what needs to be done this time around. Here goes nothing!
