The best way to make your company more profitable is to hire more people, according to the CEO of a startup.
In an interview with Polygon, Matt Hirsch, CEO of The Social Network, discussed his company’s approach to hiring and his team’s process for choosing candidates for a team.
The Social Network’s process is a “one-man show,” Hirsch explained.
He told Polygon that he hired candidates “through the social networking application, where the job seeker will provide a resume and cover letter, and the recruiter will use that to find a person to interview.
The interview will last a few days and you will have an opportunity to pick up the phone and talk to the candidate.”
Hirsch explained that The Social, like most other startups, has a “high-growth” strategy that “helps the company grow rapidly.”
The team is always in flux, so it’s important to keep an eye on everything happening at once, he added.
Hirsch emphasized that The Silicon Valley startup’s hiring process is not a “traditional” process.
He explained that he decided to focus on recruiting “high performers” to a “truly innovative team” that is capable of solving “challenges.”
In other words, the hiring process isn’t about making hiring decisions based on what you think a candidate will be good at, but what you know the candidate will do in the job.HIRS said that he prefers hiring people with a lot of experience, because that way, the company can build a team that will be “a great fit for the needs of the business.”
“I do believe that it’s a good thing to hire people who have been in a big company before,” HIRS told Polygons interviewer, Matt Gourley.
“I think you have to keep that in mind when hiring.”HIRSS also pointed out that his company also doesn’t hire “bargaining types.”
Instead, Hirsch said, the team focuses on “people who are truly innovative.”
In fact, the Social Network believes that its hiring process has made it one of the best companies in Silicon Valley.
“We hire people that are passionate about the idea,” Hircus explained.
“That’s our DNA.”
Hircus also stressed that his team focuses exclusively on “the best people” at a company.
In addition to hiring people who are good at their jobs, he also emphasizes that he looks for candidates who have an “open mind” about the role.
Hircos said that the team’s hiring philosophy is “a blend of traditional hiring and unconventional hiring.”
“The company is built on people who like doing things differently,” Hirs explained.
