Our Ai+ Hiring Partner is working hard to change how software is built and deployed, to turn high-volume data into high-value data. But it’s the people that they work with make it such a rewarding experience. So you can start to get to know them, here is what they believe about… Work: About more than just a paycheck Should be intellectually engaging Should provide the opportunity to learn and grow Short-termism in tech is bad. It’s worth building lasting relationships. Punching a clock or counting hours is bad. Results > Hours. It’s a big part of our lives, but it’s not all there is. Code: It’s fun! It’s fascinating. Always hold on to that. Knowledge work: Coding is the easy part. Figuring out the ideas is hard work. Their mental model is really what they’re building when coding. Code is an expression of your mental model. People: A person ≠ their opinions. They value people even when they disagree with their opinions. Non-traditional backgrounds are highly prized. E.g. Philosophy majors wanted! They complement each other. Everyone is good at something and bad at something. They are upfront about what they don’t know, but they are also not afraid to learn anything that they don’t know. Humility and intellectual security are important for all of them. Hiring process: No coding on a whiteboard, brain-teasers, or guess-what-I’m-thinking questions. Plan to teach them something about the cool work you’ve done in the past. Let them teach you something about the cool work they’re doing now.
