Treat your employees right, so they won't use your internet
to search for a new job.
We just want to have great people
working for us.
It doesn’t make sense to hire smart people and tell them what to do; we hire smart people so they can tell us what to do.
I choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person
will find an easy way to do it.
We are never in lack of money. We lack people with dreams,
who can die for those dreams.
Make your team feel respected, empowered and genuinely excited
about the company’s mission.
Responsible people thrive on freedom and are worthy of freedom. Our model is to increase employee freedom as we grow rather than limit it.
Most good programmers do programming not because they expect to get paid or get adulation by the public, but because it is fun to program.
The secret to successful hiring is this: look for the people
who want to change the world.
