Slite · Oct 2nd 2020
We’re looking for a passionate engineer with skills and experience in growth to build Slite's long-term sustainable growth with us.
Sustaining long-term growth and reaching hundreds of millions of users requires a scientific approach to growth. In fact, growth experts resoundingly say that “growth hacking” isn’t in their vocabulary or something they relate to their work. “Hacking” implies a haphazard / gut-driven approach, and the reality is quite the opposite. Startups that have seen amazing growth have developed teams and processes that are intentional, exceedingly metrics-driven, and thrive on experimentation. Source: Article from the Y Combinator blog
