Here’s what we think you look like…
You want to make the world a better place
Something burns inside of you. It drives you forward and overwhelms your thoughts. It’s the last thing you think of before falling asleep and it greets you when you open your eyes in the morning. You might be helping the needy, promoting minimalist running shoes, or increasing tourism for your tropical island. Whatever it is you are doing, this deep desire is what drives your every action.
It’s the passionate desire to make the world a better place.
This is the primary reason we want to work with you.
10 more things
You believe failures point to a better path to success
Failure teaches us when a tactic doesn’t work and encourages us to try new things. You know the only way to avoid failing is doing nothing at all…and that’s not how you roll.
You ask “why” first instead of saying “no”
You’ve made sure to work with people that are a good fit for you. When they suggest something you don’t understand, you want to learn their thinking, not shut them down.
You believe passion and energy are priceless
You understand that while you can pay someone to fulfill a job description, their passion and energy are their gifts to you. Gifts like that don’t come with price tags.
You want someone who can exceed your expectations
No matter how robust the job description, you know some expectations change while some are exceeded beyond anything you could have possibly imagined. (And really, who doesn’t want that?)
You smile regularly and like to laugh
You want to make the world a better place. You have lots of reasons to smile and laugh! (And no, this isn’t some cheesy platitude. We truly prefer working with happy people.)
You feel your fears, acknowledge them, and keep moving
You’re trying to make the world a better place; you’re entitled to a little fear now and then. But it doesn’t stop you. You acknowledge your fear, look it in the eyes, and then move past it.
You passionately commit to getting things done
Long development cycles are breeding grounds for procrastination. You can only do “more” if you get stuff done. And you need to get stuff to make the world a better place
You aren’t paralyzed by the myth of perfect
The search for perfect is nothing more than a nice way of saying someone is afraid of making a mistake. We already know you move past your fears so this is a moot point.
You’re globally minded and accept we’re located in Dallas *
Once upon a time companies could only get the best people within a limited geographic radius. Times have changed. You want the best in the world, not the best within a 20 mile radius of a cubicle.
You appreciate a love for technology and art
While the latest gadget may or may not lead to you waiting in lines that wrap around buildings, you appreciate that kind of devotion. Same goes for art (especially in the form of video games).
* In the event that you are located on a tropical island, we just might be willing to reconsider that whole “Dallas” thing. (:
And one final reason we should work together…
You WANT someone with super powers
