In all candidates, we look for the same four things.
We call it the 𝗦.𝗧.𝗔.𝗡 (or 𝙎𝙩𝙖𝙣 𝙨𝙘𝙤𝙧𝙚).
We search for people who understand fast, complex concepts, with a good logic, a good level of discussion & argumentation.
Someone who doesn’t let go until it's done 100%. Someone able to deep-dive into details when needed. Very hard to discourage.
This qualifies someone hardworking, who wants to progress fast, and gives importance to the people they work with. A signal may be that they are bullish on company’s equity (even though each story is different).
That’s quite subjective indeed, but we try rationalizing it this way: someone easy to communicate with, nice contact, sense of humor / self-mockery. Makes you want to keep the discussion running when time is up. Speaks respectfully of former coworkers. Humble, willing to help, "give first" mentality.
Most people will always say, “𝘐𝘵’𝘴 𝘪𝘮𝘱𝘰𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘮𝘦𝘦𝘵 𝘤𝘢𝘯𝘥𝘪𝘥𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘴 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘴𝘦 𝘧𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘴, 𝘥𝘰𝘯’𝘵 𝘭𝘰𝘰𝘬 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘪𝘮𝘱𝘰𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘢𝘴 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘵𝘦𝘢𝘮 𝘨𝘳𝘰𝘸𝘴”.
To those people I simply reply: come see for yourself, our office is wide open 😂💕
