Here at 42Floors, we believe hiring is dead. You simply can’t go hire guys like Dan anymore. And if you allow me to generalize for a moment, you can’t hire anyone capable of running their own startup. They don’t submit resumes. They don’t fill out job applications. They don’t call up recruiters.
The talent shortage for engineers is very real and a big part of that is the low barrier to starting your own thing. Joining a startup can be a great way to polish your skills before doing your own thing (especially if you’re very young) and more companies would benefit from embracing this shift the way 42Floors has.
