Kim 3:45 PM

I’m working on hiring my first developer to help build out the webapp version of my mvp. I think I need someone fullstack; they’ll ideally be working mostly for equity. Any ideas on what I should be looking for?

Richard 3:47 PM

Is this person going to be your CTO? Or just an engineer?

Kim 3:58 PM

I was just looking for a dev at the moment.

Richard 4:12 PM

Depending on how “M” you want your mvp, you might want to focus on finding someone who can build an engineering team, rather than just an engineer who can make software. If you want a true mvp that you’re just going to toss, consider a contractor.

Lacey 4:38 PM

I’d second what Richard said—my first startup initially just hired a dev and it took a few hires before we figured out what we really needed was a CTO who could come up with a technical roadmap from the get-go and identify the right kinds of talent. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions @Kim!

Kim 4:52 PM

Wow thanks @Richard and @Lacey!
