Update: As of mid-2013 I’m still interested in meeting designers/developers, so please feel free to email.
If you’re an engineer or designer looking for a new role, and interested in working with me- please send me a note and introduce yourself. (You don’t have to be in the Bay Area).
Here’s my email: firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll reply back to you personally and we can chat more! Also, feel free to forward this on to anyone else that might fit.
Here’s the longer version :)
A year ago, I wrote a post on Growth Hackers that’s now become the most popular post ever on this blog, in the 5+ years I’ve been writing it. The term has become a little bit of a buzzword, for better or worse. Thanks Sean.
One of the most frequent questions I get is, “How do I learn how to do this?” Unfortunately, there’s no book for this, and the field constantly changes. So go get hands-on experience: Write hundreds of A/B tests, design creative new landing pages and build out new sharing flows. Write the SQL and build out the analytics backend to calculate your product’s viral factor and improve it with new platform integrations. Integrate email, Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms for growth. Launch a product in Asia and supercharge it with internationalization and partnerships. Basically, go work with a competent growth team and learn as much as you can.
This stuff is hard to learn, and opportunities are rare. So today, I’m happy to announce that I’m going to be hiring talented folks for a new growth team that’s 100% focused on mobile, and I will be working with them personally on a new product. I’m focused on technical folks – engineers and designers who code – who want to learn about metrics and growth.
If you fit the profile, shoot me a note and introduce yourself. Doesn’t matter where you are in the world, as long as you can build products. If you’re in the Bay Area, even better- I’ll buy you coffee.
Here’s my email address: email@example.com
Write me please attach a resume/CV, a portfolio, etc. I’ll write you back personally.
