They're not giving you the best opportunity of your life. Then a scary thing can happen: You might realize one day that you’ve lost your competitive edge. You won’t be the best anymore. You won’t be able to fall in love with new stuff. Things are cushy where you are. You get complacent and stall. So, run your prospective engineering hires through that narrative. Then show them the alternative: working at your startup.
Some call me a tattooed metal head with an eye for design and a nose for tomfoolery. I call myself a tireless design enthusiast, a champion of users, a designer of products and experiences, an advisor to startups, an avid consumer of food, movies,and tee shirts. A husband, and a maker of things.
You can just call me Jeffrey.
