When NS1 began its first wave of rapid-growth hiring last year, the company kicked off its searches with three tenets in mind:
Adhering to these tenets was a challenge. How do you balance the pain of your team with your responsibilities to maintain your budget? How do you encourage a team member to grow when that means outgrowing critical responsibilities? How do you assess gaps and design roles when your team is dynamic and your needs are complex?
Renee Orser explains how to design your technical organization deliberately, by assessing gaps, diagraming roles, elevating talent, and finding the right people as your company and product demands scale. You’ll learn how to generate a map to undertake rapid-growth hiring. Renee shares templates for gap analysis and demonstrate how to apply these principles across every department; Renee also offers insights on how to design roles and responsibilities and how to analyze trade-offs with candidates once you have actual applicants in front of you. You’ll leave with repeatable strategies for deliberate hiring during high-intensity growth in the startup environment.
