How to Get Hired
We asked Bound for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
1. Flexibility. Gauging a candidate's ability to work in a startup/early stage environment. Our "agile" enviroment means there are less concrete processes and systems than someone at, say, Dell or Oracle may be used to having. In our view, it's a strength of the business, to some, it's not the structure they desire.
2. Collaborative. We are an incredibly open and supportive team. Sometimes each of us lead, and sometimes we support. If a person only likes to do things their way, they likely won't be comfortable here. Input from others is another of our strengths.
3. Balance. We live to create experiences for each other by working hard while allowing time off. People at the far end of being a slacker or being a workaholic don't do well here. We work, we play.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
A candidate should come in with at least a high-level understanding of our business. We don't expect everyone to understand us inside and out, but you have to at least make an effort to know what we do and how we do it. If you don't get it right, that's okay, but the attempt is a must.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We're always looking for the next great sales, CS, marketing or engineering candidate. We'll often make the opporunistic here when a rare candidate comes along.
