How to Vet a Startup’s Culture While InterviewingBy Chris Muir
When you're considering a job at a startup, it's important to take their culture (workstyle, values, and environment) into account. Here's what to look into.
Back in October, we published a breakdown of our monthly SaaS and technology expenses. It’s high time for an update.
Our SaaS spend has stayed relatively flat, while our infrastructure spend has increased about 3x due to new product launches and general business growth. Despite the increase, our takeaway from this exercise is that there are lots of great pieces of software available today that make it relatively inexpensive to run a company that supports hundreds of companies and thousands of job seekers every month. We’d love to see this sort of operational transparency become the norm in our industry.
Note: Like last time, we’ve excluded salaries, Stripe fees, advertising, rent, and one-off expenses from our calculation. We may disclose them in future posts.
Every week we send out a newsletter called Ruff Notes with our personal thoughts on something interesting we’ve read, as well as product updates and news from our community.
