It’s heartwarming to receive so much positive feedback on these recent job postings because we truly do pour an incredible amount of effort into them. Usually weeks of debate, refinement, critique, and improvement behind every one ❤️

Asking someone to consider making one of their biggest life decisions - changing jobs - should be done with the outmost care and respect. It’s not something that should just be delegated to those with no connection with the role. Future coworkers should be part of the process.

Finally, if you like how we write job postings, you’ll probably like how we write software too. With that same level of human respect and care. Free from VC juicing or Valley ethics. Give Basecamp a try if you haven’t (or haven’t in a while).  https://basecamp.com
