Huddle Stories, Episode 016: The Really Rich Podcast
“This is my challenge right now, dude.” - Nicholas Crown, Host of the Really Rich Podcast re: UX UI hiring taking too long
After they had a laugh about the live customer acquisition happening, Nicholas filled out an application and is now building with Huddle.
Huddle CEO & Co-Founder Mike went on Nicolas Crown’s Really Rich podcast recently and we’d like to highlight a couple of our favorite moments (& yes, these were moments when they were talking about Huddle, ofc):
When Nicholas realized he needed Huddle himself
Nicholas: “For my AI company, I’m in the process of interviewing UX UI …. and everyone’s all over the world. So my interviews are going to take me two weeks to get through. You think I want to spend two weeks interviewing people? No! I want to find the person, and I want to get to work because I wanted this on my software two weeks ago. I wanted this on my software a month ago.”
“This is my challenge right now, dude.”
After they had laugh about customer acquisition & finished up the podcast, Nicholas filled out an application and is now building with Huddle.
Mike stating, “You’re going to want to poach your team.”
This may seem counter-intuitive for our business, but we understand that we have incredible talent and this is the reality of it! And on top of that…
Mike: “You might hire your designer from Huddle full-time, but they’re still going to be a community member. They might still hustle for a couple of hours or advise a start up on the side—so it’s a really cool, fluid, elastic world of work we’re going into. It is just more about being able to get a team of experts around your idea fast and flexibly and be able to start moving.”
We’re here to help, people. Even if that means you poach your team.
